Services Available Spanish lessons                                                                            For the past six weeks I have been having Spanish lessons with a lovely young man who speaks fluent English.   He is extremely reasonable and I only pay 7€ an hour and for two teas at whichever cafe we stop. (My choice to pay for teas)                        This is a structured lesson, with grammar, verbs and vocabulary. ie.it is not a chat type lesson. He gives homework! You have been warned!    He has no transport and lives near the lighthouse end of the promenade, so we usually arrange to meet at a cafe nearby.  If there are two of you, he charges 7€ each                                                He has some slots available, so why not give him a ring?                                          Adrian Baez  00 34 617 92 45 84       Ruth
