Sharing our great experience with Malagalingo: We found this sponsor on your page and I went alone for the first free class and that went great. Next week I brought my wife Anna and she enjoyed it also. We have now attended the Wednesday Intermediate class for 4 weeks now and will continue. We have coffee and sit around with Suzi and other students for an hour and have a different topic every week. All useful discussions of what you really need to know. All in all it is a pleasurable experience and the hour goes by very rapidly. Suzi is a great communicator and teacher. No strict guidelines just nice conversations. I cannot recommend MalagaLingo enough. After years of software programs and home learning we are definitely moving easily ahead.

Looking for Skilled Handyman: I am looking for recommendations for an excellent handyman/carpenter. I’m in La Herradura and, unfortunately, lost my trusted and reasonably priced handyman. He will be hard to replace.
Most important qualities I am looking for: reliable, skilled, trustworthy, and reasonably priced. English speaking would be ideal, however we can manage with Spanish speaking as long as all of the above qualities are present. The jobs are varied, ranging from simple handyman projects to more complex remodeling jobs.
I’ve received such outstanding recommendations from this terrific site so I’m hoping for some wonderful recommendations. I thank you, in advance, for your thoughtful advice.

Dog walkers wanted: Tail Torrox Dog Refuge is situated near the costa on the other side of the road from Lidl. We have over 80 dogs and pups at the refuge and we never have enough people to walk them. If you have some spare time we would really appreciate your visit. We particularly need able bodied walkers who can handle some of the bigger dogs. All dogs come with harnesses and we are sure you will get a lot of pleasure from their company.
We always need help at the refuge too so if anyone is interested,
please email: ogillyarmstead AT gmail DOT com
We really welcome people who can commit to a few hours morning or afternoon. Thank you
