6 Fun Ways to Practice Spanish in London

1. Attend a Cookery Class

Food is a big deal in the Spanish and Latin culture so why not practice your Spanish whilst learning to cook like a local.

Cookery School offers a one-day class where you'll learn to cook authentic Spanish food such as a variety of tapas, a traditional paella and regional desserts.

With Try My Kitchen, you can spend 1.5 hours practising your Spanish whilst making tapas. They also offer classes where you can learn to prepare paella as well as Spanish cookery classes that can take place in the comfort of your own home.

2. Eat Out

Of course, you can also enjoy Spanish cuisine without doing any of the hard work.

London is bursting with restaurants and when it comes to Spanish and Latin options, you're spoilt for choice.

You can also indulge in delicious Spanish food at two of London's markets, Borough and Exmouth.

Food festivals can also be great places to try authentic Spanish food and practice your Spanish phrases.

3. Experience Art & Culture

The great thing about learning Spanish is that you can combine it with your other interests.

If you're an art lover, follow the National Portrait Gallery's Spanish Masterpieces trail and if you really want to immerse yourself in the experience, use an audio guide in Spanish.

Cinema goers can attend the London Spanish Film Festival or the Latin American Film Festival.

You should also check the listings of independent cinemas as they regularly show films from around the world.

Theatre fans can see a show at the Cervantes Theatre or the Festival Spanish Theatre.

Spanish Culture and Science in the UK also provides information on the latest events happening across the country.

4. Dance 

Music and dancing are also an important part of the Spanish culture and it provides another fun way for you to practise your Spanish.

In London, you can take classes in anything from flamenco to bachata, capoeira to salsa.

Alternatively, you can skip the formality of classes and simply go along to a latin club or bar to practice your best moves - and Spanish of course!

If you're a fan of dance, but prefer to watch it, then you might be interested in the Flamenco Festival at Sadler's Wells this month.
