Who we are
We bring different cultures together to better understand each other by improving their language skills.
This is who we are
Do you live in Gran Canaria but do not understand the people? Would you like to improve your Spanish? Are you finding it hard to communicate? Do you lack confidence and want to become fluent? Are you tired of constantly being taught a syllabus rather than being taken as an individual?
Welcome to Puerto Rico Language Centre!
We are a language centre focused on providing the best customer service using existing technology, creativity and mindfulness, which helps you concentrate on what’s most important: The Language. You will enjoy going over the lessons because they help you achieve your specific needs, goals and expectations.
Innovation means that we improve your learning experience, while easing your worries every time new vocabulary is received. Lesson in your inbox achieves clarity, because you concentrate on listening to the tutor during the lesson, and receive it once again in your email in a document. You will no longer miss any vocabulary, and it will be spelt correctly for you!
We create a teaching system according to your level, needs, learning style and objectives.
We will take your Spanish to the next level!
Puerto Rico Language Centre was opened in September 2014, by Diego Mesa, a local from Gran Canaria, who has lived for 20 years abroad, 17 of which were spent in the United Kingdom.
While in England he taught doctors Spanish, among other professionals, has worked using different languages in sectors such as the IT and Telecoms Industries, Research and Development for Universities and Higher Education among others, which has given him a vast amount of experience.
On his return he saw that due to a lack of interest in the area of Puerto Rico, the British, Irish and Scandinavian Expats, did not have access to a Spanish tutor, many of which have expressed their frustration at one point or another.
Since then, he has helped people become more confident, more fluent and most of all more at home in Gran Canaria.
Gran Canaria is a world in miniature, where Asians, Europeans, Latin Americans, Africans and the local Canarian people come together to share this limited space in one island. Just like in today’s global society we have to cope with different people from different walks of life and different cultures, we also have to be able to speak at least a second language to survive.
Many people get stuck into an area such as Puerto Rico or Playa del Inglés for example, disregarding other amazing parts of the island, because they do not feel they have the necessary confidence to visit these places due to their lack of Spanish.
The telephone contracts, rental agreements, conversations at the police station or at the town hall are but few examples where you need your Spanish even if everywhere else in your neighbourhood English is spoken.
Meeting locals as well as expats is a good way to feel settled, especially when you work and live in the island.
We bring different cultures together to better understand each other, whether it is in a social setting or when conducting business by improving your language skills.
