Spanish Lessons with Mely

"I am really happy that I found the Mely’s Spanish classes in Hay-on-Wye. She strikes exactly the right balance between challenging me and encouraging me. I knew some Spanish when I joined the class, but it has now improved considerably. The atmosphere in Mely's class is very friendly and one is made to feel quite at home”. JW
