Cook, Eat and Speak Spanish

A course of learning Spanish while you cook and eat tapas will be starting at Worcester Park library on Wednesday the 22nd May. ‘Cooking Your Spanish’ is running an eight week lunchtime course at the library with the last session on the 10th of July. The one and a half hour Wednesday sessions start at 11am and finish at 12:30 and cost £25 per session which covers food, a large glass of wine (and other drinks), ingredients, tools and lessons. Those of you who are good at maths will have spotted that this works out at £200 for the entire course which is payable as two £100 installments.

‘Cooking Your Spanish’ is a Worcester Park based group of Spanish professionals with more than ten years of training experience. You may have spotted them at the recent Easter Fun Day where they had a stall near the corner of Windsor Road.

Their mission is to teach Spanish and Hispanic culture using a kitchen environment as a vehicle so it is a language class rather than a cookery class. Everyone prepares and enjoys tapas while learning and practicing Spanish with an emphasis on real conversations that occur in scenarios such as restaurants, hospitals, shopping, hotel, business, traveling, etc.

It is all about a fun way to learn a language in an environment where beginners can have a go without being afraid to make mistakes. And at the same time learn how to make tapas with the option to discover a world of wine to go with it.

You will need to book in advance. For more information please see or their facebook page:

They are having a taster (if you’ll pardon the pun) at Scola (joined to the Sutton Civic offices and Library) on Sunday 19 May from  11am until 2pm. This 3 hour session will cost £30 and you can enroll online for this directly at scola: or you can call 0208 770 5566. The course code is: S7057LVS.
