How is Mallorca?

MAJORCA: Mediterranean Lady

This elegant island has to offer anything a visitor might dream of.

Tourism at Majorca started to develop already in the 1920s, and until the Spanish Civil War it was mainly intellectuals and artists who were attracted by this island.

Majorca’s wonderful climate, beautiful landscapes as well as its cosmopolitan ambience make it a privileged holiday resort, with a cultural offer comparable to the one of many European capitals. The Auditorio de Palma, for instance, ranks among Europe’s top concert halls.

At Majorca, you will find relaxation, inspiration, culture and entertainment…

Why Academia Mallorca?

Because it is the best option to learn Spanish

And the teachers at Academia Mallorca have an unparalleled passion and commitment to their work. We aim to make our students feel motivated in class, thus allowing them to speak with confidence at all times.

As you can read here in the following student testimony:

Our lessons are easily comprehensible, which makes students lose their inhibition when it comes to speaking and makes them feel more comfortable when expressing their thoughts in society. The technique we apply is face to face learning, through continuous and repeated communication.

In this way, the students can increasingly adapt to our system. Our duty is to correct and guide the students in every step forward they make, confirming the different skills they develop in every lesson. We guarantee seriousness, responsibility, effective ways of work and confidence.

Moreover, we have necessary teaching aids with exclusive topics for every level, from beginner to advanced levels.

Biography

Angel Estrada was born in the province of Carchi Ecuador. After spending his first years there, he then moved to the capital, Quito, to continue his education. Over the years he showed an unusual gift for teaching, usually small groups who needed tutoring. He also worked with primary schools organizing small summer courses.

His vocation to become a language teacher stemmed from all this experience; there followed a five year period of higher education, eventually specializing in the teaching of Spanish as a foreign language.
His dedication, knowledge and experience earned him a position in the prestigious school of languages of the capital, where he worked for 5 years.

He then went on to work in other international institutions, gaining ever more experience in the way in which pupils approach and absorb a foreign language.

Spanish Courses


Mallorca Academy gives Spanish classes at all levels to all people interested in learning or improving their Spanish.

Our courses are practical and easily understood because we use our own exercises based on a program and study plan. Students learn in class through speaking, writing and drills with the professor. Students are given exercises to practice at home.

The method and study plan are oriented to communication.

Accelerated Basic Course ( 20 hours / 40 hours / 60 hours)

These are courses designed for students who don’t have much knowledge of Spanish, and don’t have time for an “in depth” course. Therefore we have chosen suitable themes and situations which the student will be able to handle himself skillfully and express himself clearly. We use a direct method characterized by quick assimilation combined with correct grammar, vocabulary, reading and pronunciation.

Regular Courses ( 40 hours – 120 hours )

These are courses for people who may or may not have knowledge of Spanish. The courses are designed to lay a strong foundation in Spanish and improve knowledge of the language through dialogue. The courses are directed to students who want to learn the language in an orderly progression. the student learns basic grammarstructures in conversation and the courses are divided into three levels.

Dear Angel
I thank you for your patience in the last few months in the teaching of Español.I have learnt so much from you and you have made it so interesting.I found the way you taught Español easy to follow, you were always explaining things in such a way that I could follow through and even master the verbs and adjectives. I have a way to go yet to become proficient in the language but you have given me a good foundation and I will always remember you.
Yours sincerely

Dear Angel,

When I decided to move to Mallorca, to start a new Business, I made up my mind to learn the language of the country. I bought two sets of CDs that were supposed to make learning Spanish easy. However, I found that it was very difficult to understand the basic teaching, and it was also very boring .

I started my lessons with you doing eight hours over three days each week, and I was worried that it would be too much to take-in. In the event, I found that the time passed very quickly, and your method of teaching kept my interest throughout each session.

It´s hard to believe that just five weeks ago, I did not know any Spanish at all, and now I can understand around eighty-per-cent of most conversations. I particularly like the fact that you teach the proper pronunciation, and that you insist on continual practise of the verbal conjugations. This makes it possible to understand more easily when I get it wrong.

I have found the whole experience very enjoyable and I look forward to starting another series of more advanced lessons, at the end of the year. I would recommend your courses to anyone who wants to learn real Spanish. The kind that allows you to converse with the local people in terms that they can understand.

Yours sincerely,

Douglas Cardow

Dear Ángel, I have taken Spanish lessons with you now for 3 months. I would like to thank you for your professional and enjoyable teaching. Due to your classes I am now to converse in good Spanish for a beginner and your method of teaching was very easy to understand. I am coming back to Mallorca, and I will certainly take more lessons with you. Thank you very much, and good luck. All the best Peter Pratt.

Dear Angel,

Well, we have completed our course and now have to follow your instructions – practica, practica, practica!!!

We would both like to thank you, not only for teaching us the important aspects of the Spanish language, but also the way in which you made each class interesting, so we felt encouraged and wanted to learn more.

We particularly liked the way each lesson was constructed, with plenty of conversation using, as you liked to tell us, correct Spanish. This helped to build our confidence, and combined well with the necessary learning of vocabulary, verbs and conjugation.

We will certainly recommend you to anyone who may want to learn Spanish, either a basic course, or a refresher to bring out the words sleeping in their heads!!

We will keep in touch to let you know our progress.

Regards,
Carole and Peter Richardson

“We feel very lucky that Angel was recommended to us. We had been struggling along on another course and although we desperately wanted to learn Spanish, those classes like the worst parts of being back at school. We took a chance at changing schools and it has worked out so well for us.

The best thing about Ángel is his energy. He clearly loves teaching and because he is so enthusiastic he really keeps you going.  We are always amazed at how patient he is, he will keep explaining until we fully understand.  He really encourages us to ask questions which means every class is really tailored to suit us. I’m sure we learn 3 times faster than we did previously and we really look forward to the classes.  There’s always something to laugh at and that really helps to keep focused over a 2 hour class.  It is a pleasure when we can recommend him to others.”

I want to thank you for helping me overcome hurdles with the Spanish language, you truly are a superb teacher. Living on and off the Balearics for 5 years, I attempted what feels like the majority of quick fix Spanish tutorials, books, online classes.. yet I still struggled with fluency, confidence and understanding. Within a month (more or less 15 hours) of tutorial with you, I am able to speak & understand the majority of conversational Spanish, and express myself with greater confidence. Your encouragement and enthusiasm has turned what was previously a chore into a fun and enjoyable journey, I look forward to learning more.. Thank you !

History of Academia Mallorca

Academia Mallorca was created in 2006 by Ángel Estrada in Palma de Mallorca.

Originally from Ecuador, he is a skilled professional teacher of Spanish with many years’ experience in his home country. Having arrived in Spain, he began to teach Spanish to foreigners. His dedication and professionalism, added to his passion for language teaching, gradually led to him to have a fair number of private students.

After several years devoted to teaching in a private capacity, the idea of creating a school came about.

All teaching aids, methods and materials have been developed exclusively for Academia Mallorca to ensure a good and fruitful learning experience.
