From November 1st 2021, Improvers' classes will be held on Mondays 11.30am - 1pm, and Tuesdays 4 - 5.30pm. 


Lessons are in six-week blocks, and the fee is £18 per lesson. Each lesson is 1.5 hours. 




Classes are taught by Lyons Languages' Director of Studies, Siobhan Lyons, who lived in Italy for 20 years and is a fluent Italian speaker, as well as an experienced language teacher and translator. 


We are now offering classes in Spanish. Classes are taught by Gladys Sánchez-Ray, originally from Buenos Aires. Gladys has been a Spanish teacher for more than 20 years in Cambridge. She says, 'I have a real passion for teaching, my aim is for students to enjoy the way of learning while walking the unforgettable path of socialising in a new culture.  Because Spanish is spoken in so many countries, traditions and customs are very vast and this could give a very interesting possibility of understanding the good and the bad in Non-European countries'.
