Hola¡ my name is Ben and I am studying Spanish at VLLC. I decided to start learning a language for two reasons; firstly after spending some time in Spain, I returned thinking that I would have got more from the trip if I could have spoken the language. I want to go back to Spain, as well as travel to South America, hence my first reason to learn Spanish. The second reason is that my workplace now has an office in Chile and being able to speak Spanish may open up opportunities for me to work in this office or overseas. The VLLC program’s combination of online study and 1-1 tutorials is very enjoyable, the tutors are great teachers and I am finding that what I am learning is sticking, having studied a language at high school the approach of VLLC seems to work much better. I have tentatively tried out my new found Spanish skills in a few restaurants and with colleagues at work, to my surprise they have understood me! So far it has been very rewarding experience.
Hola amigos! Me llamo Tara and I am studying Spanish at VLLC in Adelaide. At the beginning of the year I spent 2 months travelling around México. Upon returning to Australia I knew I wanted to work towards becoming fluent in Spanish which lead me to VLLC. I am currently half way through my Certificate ll in Foreign Language Studies and in a month I'll be heading back to México for a second time... I have always been fascinated by Latin American culture and in the future I'd like to work in environmental science and conservation in a Spanish speaking country. I'm looking forward to continuing the journey in México and beyond!
I am so grateful for my amazing tutor Tamara (she is muy chevere) and all the ladies at VLLC who offer such a supportive and encouraging environment to learn in. ¡Muchas gracias chicas!
Nos vemos jueves!
Guy loves both the Spanish language, and the connected cultures! On trips to Spain and Latin America, he enjoys simply sitting in a bar and watching life go by!
A VLLC Melbourne student for 6 months now, Guy says “I find the 1 to 1 intensive tuition method helpful, as I was finding it difficult getting a class at my level.”
He now enjoys being able to practice Spanish with friends, family… and “the occasional backpacker on the No 96 tram!”
Here are some stories about VLLC' students and why they are learning a language
