The Speaque Team

All of us at Speaque are fluent in French, Spanish or both.  

Adela and Xiomara are both native Spanish speakers (Adela from Spain, and Xiomara from Venezuela). Beatrice (not in the picture) is a native French speaker.  
Joanna is fluent in French, having studied it to degree level, and having lived and worked in France. Dominique is half French, with a degree in French, German and Spanish.  

We are all licensed to teach using the La Jolie Ronde method, and have all completed La Jolie Ronde training.  We all have current DBS(CRB) certificates.   We work closely together, sharing best practise and keeping our classes as lively and dynamic as possible.
