"You probably heard of the power of teaching by example? Martha is one of these inspiring people whose passion for what she does naturally creates her business of teaching languages and dancing. Ever thought of learning Spanish, visually, auditory plus moving your body with the rhythm of uno, dos, tres, ...? That's what we did at Martha's talk at Fabulous Women and I think I can safely say, we didn't just learn to count from one to ten but also got a reminder of how much fun and ease learning can be."

Martina Grubmueller

"I loved my Spanish lessons with Martha Jesty - she has a very thorough and engaging approach to learning Spanish and I felt that my spoken Spanish particularly improved over the course of my 10 lessons with her. She also gave me lots of advice for home learning. I would thoroughly recommend lessons with her."

“I would like to let you know how much I enjoyed the Spanish lessons with you Martha. I thought the topics you chose were perfect for beginners and I do think I could at least start a conversation with a Spanish speaking person. Thank you again for making my isolation a little bit more bearable for a few days.” Sue Maclean

"I like Martha’s enthusiasm. I liked the introduction to books/ stories at my level which I can read and understand. The small class size is beneficial. The classes are varied and include different methodologies which is very useful. We cover a lot in class. The classes give a structure to learning you can then practice and go over on your own when is essential for it being returned. I feel there is more opportunity to participate compared with other adult education course I have attended." Janet Martin
