OUR TEAM

Escola Idiomes Tarragona was established in 1956 under the name of Berlitz, and later Inlingua, and has always had an excellent reputation in the city of Tarragona, providing a range of quality courses and achieving excellent results. We offer classes in 6 different languages and can prepare students for all major exams, including Cambridge FCE, CAE and IELTS, TOEFL and Goethe Institute German examinations.

Under new management, we have maintained and expanded on our existing range of language courses, but we also value the importance of CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning) and we offer a range of alternative topics taught by native speakers.

Although we offer a range of courses, English is one of our specialities and our English language teachers have between fifteen and thirty-five years’ experience of teaching English as a Foreign Language. Two of our employees are also teacher trainers, thus ensuring that high teaching standards are maintained.

Mandy
Director and English Teacher

My teaching experience spans almost four decades and three continents. Having spread the English language to thousands of students across Africa, Asia and Europe, I have now brought my expertise to Tarragona. As a language teacher and teacher trainer, I am passionate about ensuring the quality of my own teaching and that of the teachers in the school. My priority has always been the students and ensuring that they have the best possible learning experience.

Chris
Business Coordinator

I was born on the outskirts of north-east London. After leaving school I worked for some time at the Royal Courts of Justice in London. I then lived for two and a half years in Israel, before cycling to Tarragona. I worked for over twenty years in Tarragona in the shipping industry, before changing to Commercial Coordinator at E.I.T. in 2017. As well as my native English, I also speak fluent Spanish, & Catalan, basic Hebrew and German, with notions of Mandarin Chinese.

Phil
English Teacher

I began work in Escola Idiomes Tarragona (or Inlingua as it then was) in 1992. After a four-year break teaching in Barcelona, I returned to EIT in Tarragona and have been at the school ever since. I have worked with students here for over twenty years and have a clear understanding of needs, and strive to bring out the best potential of each student.

Eva
German Teacher

I have been teaching German as a foreign language since 1984 and in-house at E.I.T. for 15 years, and my students are constantly surprised that it’s really possible to learn this supposedly difficult language with its endlessly long words. Though my first language is German, I am also fluent in Spanish, Catalan, French and English, and I know how to break the barriers to German, a language of worldwide importance, not least for its technical literature.

Alexandra
Spanish Teacher

I am Alexandra, graduate in Spanish language and literature and with a Master’s degree in teaching Spanish as a foreign language from the Rovira i Virgili University (URV). I have tought Spanish classes at the University, during their curricular practices, to Asian students. Afterwards, I have taught classes in different academies, both to adults and teenagers. In my classes I use the method of multiple intelligences and games, as a means to learn in a fun way, without forgetting the focus on communication.

Noemie
French Teacher

I was born in Paris and moved to Tarragona definitively in March 2017. In addition to teaching French as a foreign language, I am a classically trained pianist and harpist. I have also acted in five theatre productions. I studied voice in Paris, and can teach singing in French as part of the Escola Idiomes Tarragona CLIL activities. In the past I competed at national level in gymnastics and synchronised swimming.
