The academy


Rural environment

Located at a few miles from Llanes and in a rural environment surrounded by nature, the academy becomes the perfect place to sucessfully study and learn languages.

Placed at a very quiet property, with plenty of trees around, heading the Sierra del Cuera and in a calm scene, the academy offers students the perfect atmosphere to make the most of their lessons.

The classroom, equipped with big windows and a great natural light, is laid out in a comfortable way for students to feel at ease while learning and studying along their academic time at Marina Languages. 

Classroom and children area

The classroom is divided into two areas: one space for school students and adults and another zone entirely desgined for children.

Equipped with a wide variety of books, games, school supplies and audiovisual materials, the atmosphere in class turns out to be as cosy and rewarding as ever imagined. 

San Roque del Acebal

Named “Pueblo ejemplar del Concejo de Llanes” back in 2017, in San Roque del Acebal we have increasingly invested in the preservation and development of our natural environment over the last decades.

The great extension of our village, its different connections to the mountains and the sea, its proximity to main towns like Llanes, its large fields and natural resources and its wide variety of charming corners makes San Roque a favourable place for business growth and the emergence of wonderful initiatives such as the highly recommended Senda del Valle Invisible.

La verdad es que Marina es una persona muy amable, alegre, abierta, positiva y sobre todo cultivada con quien puedes hablar de todo: desde la actualidad política hasta recetas de cocina (“¿Qué hacer con todas estas ciruelas?”) pasando por « Art nouveau », libros favoritos, moda, música y psicología.

El verano pasado decidimos continuar con nuestras conversaciones a través de Internet y, actualmente, solemos tener una sesión por Skype de una hora al mes. Este método online no solamente resulta muy divertido sino que también impide que pierda el hilo de mis conocimientos del español durante el año. Me resulta muy motivador seguir adelante con mi práctica del castellano mientras vivo en Alemania.

It was about four years ago when I met Marina. I had failed my exam of English and I needed an English teacher, it was the best moment when I met Marina because I was not able to pass my exam. However, as it was very complicated, Marina encouraged me and at the end I could pass my English exam in less than two months.

Nowadays I continue studying English with Marina and I’m so grateful to her. Besides the fact that I’ve improved my level of English during this time, I do enjoy with each class we have together.

Eva Borbolla - Early Childhood Educator, Asturias (Spain)

One year ago I started my English lessons with Marina. First, I took online lessons via Skype with her and now that I’m back in Asturias, I still study English with her because I love the way she works: very professional, patient and entertaining. Lessons with her are fun, tailored to your needs and a clear guarantee of a constant improvement. I totally recommend her lessons, you will discover an incredible teacher and amazing person!

Belén E. - Professor of Spanish Language and Literature, Asturias (Spain)

The possibility of studying online with Marina has provided me with the achievement of all my language objectives. The comfortability I enjoy when taking English lessons at my own home (without spending time commuting to a physical academy) gives me the regularity I need for a better learning.

Personalised lessons are another motivating reason to study with her because I can enjoy Marina’s commitment to teach English in an organised and fun way during my two weekly lessons. I feel that I’m making progress!

Thank you very much, Marina.

Mark, Keswick (England)

As I was recovering from a serious illness I noticed an advert in our local paper advertising Spanish lessons. Imagine my surprise to find a lovely young Spanish girl who was willing to come to my home and help me begin to learn her beautiful language.

Marina never made me feel uncomfortable, was not impatient with me, always sought to encourage me in a very kind way. Mistakes were not tolerated, even a missing accent was pointed out to me in a fun way.

Marina is a credit to her family and an excellent teacher.. Muchas gracias Marina, fue un tiempo precioso.

Suzanne - Nurse, Basel (Switzerland)

Marina teaches in a very relaxed way and she’s very patient!

She’s is from Asturias and loves her cultural traditions. I like that very much because, that way, I can learn many new things about the Spanish culture.

Marina is a very professional teacher of the Spanish language and culture.

I strongly recommend her school!

María Cueto - Teacher, Asturias (Spain)

Marina has been a very helpful teacher who has allowed me to improve my English language skills and, especially, a person who has provided me with a great confidence when having to communicate and speak in English.

Her lessons are entertaining and well organised which allows me to make progress with my English fluency without leaving aside any of the important dimensions that learning a new language implies.

She is also a teacher with excellent qualities to help you to overcome all the difficulties you may find when studying a new language.
