(15 student reviews)

I am Silvia Liliana Bustamante MA, BA, a Spanish teacher for 16 years in Ecuador and for the last 10 years in Sydney.

I am considered a competent and patient teacher, with excellent knowledge of Spanish. My knowledge of the language, South American history and culture helps me to develop interesting lessons and give my students the competencies they are seeking. The 80% of the time the student speaks.

Learn Spanish Sydney


As I'm based close to the Sydney CBD I can organize one to one or Group lessons at your Office, Home or any convenient place in the City or nearby.

Lessons are structured in:

Basic (beginners) Intermediate Advanced


Beginners will study from Spanish Alphabet to Present Tense of irregular verbs.

Intermediate from Past Tense up to Future Tense.

Advanced from Conditional to Periphrasis.

Students with some knowledge of Spanish will be roughly tested to fit them in the best programme of study.

Further practical courses are usually held in Spanish Clubs and Restaurants to improve your capacity to deal with common everyday situations and needs, as

Asking for accommodation Ordering food Shopping and disco
Asking for information Emergency situation Museum, festivals and landmarks

I also organize full-immersion Spanish Courses in Ecuador and Spain.

The difference between these personalized lessons and a language school:

You can chose the lesson structure to suit you from the existing options or we can develop an approach just for you We can modify the structure to suit your progress. We can utilize a variety of learning techniques and activities that will help you learn fast and have fun The lesson times are flexible and you can change each week if necessary - I understand people are busy and will attempt to fit in with your schedule.


While I am happy to be flexible and arrange lessons to suit your schedule, I do request a 24 hour notice for cancellation or reschedule.

NB: If case of shorter notice or fail to arrive, you will be asked to pay for your lesson.

Learning Spanish in Spain

Consider an inexpensive holiday in Madrid, while living at a Spanish home stay. I will prepare a comprehensive program including an airport pickup, accommodation, family style food, Spanish lessons and daily tourist information. Needless to add, you will practice Spanish every day.

Learning Spanish in Ecuador

You will be able to live with a family in Quito while having Spanish lessons. The teacher will be able to travel with you around the country, while you study at the same time.
