Spanish courses in Neuchâtel

Hello, my name is Nicole

My career has led me to live abroad, where I’ve had the privilege of exploring the languages, culture and history of various countries, shaping my identity through my experiences in Berlin, London, Madrid and Brazil. Inspired by these rich intercultural exchanges, in 2023 I founded the Speak to the World language school to open the doors of the world to you.

In Neuchâtel, I offer one-to-one Spanish lessons at all levels, whether face-to-face, at school, at home, in a company or online.

Learning methodology

Spanish is one of the most widely spoken languages in the world, and is not only spoken in Spain, Central America and Latin America, with Castilian occupying fourth place among the most widely used idioms. Mastering it can seem complex, given its many grammatical rules and rich lexicon.

In Neuchâtel, I offer innovative and dynamic Spanish courses, facilitating language learning thanks to my OPAH method. Throughout the course, we use verbal exchanges to identify gaps, which we then work on through specific lessons.

The learner benefits from a series of fully personalized lessons to progress at a pace that suits him or her, with complete confidence.

For a few months now, I've been taking a private course with Nicole Durand. Attentive to my wishes and needs, she offers lively sessions focusing on everyday conversation, while integrating essential grammatical knowledge. So it's just what I was looking for.

Sandra Portuguese course

Nicole is not only competent, but she also puts a lot of joy, passion and heart into her lessons, and I can't recommend her highly enough.

Noémie Portuguese course

I've been learning English and German with Nicole for 2 years now and I'm really enjoying my lessons. Incidentally, you don't feel like you're in a class, having to learn something that you'll then have to master impeccably. The good thing is that you learn what you can and what you need to learn. It's based more on an intuitive approach to language. Even as a beginner, it's easy to make progress with this type of training. We learn by having simple discussions, which gradually become more complex as we evolve.


At first, the idea of speaking English made me really shy. But within the first few minutes with Nicole, everything changed. She has an incredible way of making lessons relevant and engaging, with an emphasis on oral practice. With her, every lesson is a new adventure: you learn while having fun, and you almost forget it's a class. What's really great is the flexibility of the courses, with the option of doing them online or at home. I'm progressing and my confidence in English is improving day by day, and fear has given way to the pleasure of learning. Nicole turned my apprehension into a revolutionary learning experience!


Nicole has been teaching me English for over a year now, and I'm completely satisfied with her work. I have improved enormously and am making huge progress very quickly. Nicole is committed, competent, a good listener and patient. She also knows how to put us at ease and adapts to our individual needs.
These courses are interesting and innovative with a very good learning method. I highly recommend it!

Intensive workshop: language and culture

Spanish courses in Neuchâtel are distinguished by my understanding of the specific challenges of each learner’s mother tongue. I tailor lessons to your level, expectations and goals.

Thanks to my own experience of learning four foreign languages, I’ve developed an innovative method, OPAH (O=oral, P=personalized, A=active, H=human), which focuses on communication and oral expression. This approach gives you concrete tools to boost your confidence and express yourself freely in Spanish.

Learning Spanish starts with phonetics and vocabulary.

Unless you live in a Spanish-speaking environment, you’ll need several months of assiduous training to master the basics and communicate simply. To achieve excellent results in the shortest possible time, we recommend intensive one-to-one tuition.

However, express learning of Spanish in just 3 months remains a major challenge, even with a private teacher. Such a short period of time would require a massive investment in terms of daily personal work and additional intensive practice. Your teacher will be able to guide you with suitable recommendations, but the bulk of the effort will rest on your shoulders.

You’ll need to devote several hours a day to the study of grammar, vocabulary, conjugation and various exercises. At the same time, you’ll need to immerse yourself as fully as possible in the language by reading, listening to and watching Spanish-language content, and practicing conversation whenever possible. A language trip of a month or more could also speed up your progress. Finally, a high level of motivation and the ability to learn quickly are essential if you are to master the conversational basics in just 3 months.

As an experienced Spanish teacher, I can assure you that learning Spanish offers many advantages when living in Switzerland. Whether you’re a child or an adult, beginner or advanced, my personalized teaching will meet your specific needs.

First of all, the Spanish language will open the doors to a rich and fascinating culture. Over the course of the course, you’ll learn not only grammar and texts, but also essential historical and cultural information. Conversations about tapas, sangria and local traditions will enliven your lessons.

On a professional level, fluency in Spanish is a real asset. Many Swiss companies work with Spain and Latin America. Your language skills will be highly valued and could help you land a job or advance your career.

What’s more, speaking Spanish makes traveling much easier. Whether you’re on vacation in Spain, Mexico or other Spanish-speaking countries, you’ll be able to communicate easily and enjoy your stay to the full, without language barriers.

My courses are suitable for all levels, from absolute beginners to intermediate and advanced students. My teaching approach prioritizes natural learning, based on conversation and exchange. Grammar and vocabulary will of course be on the agenda, but always in a pragmatic way and in relation to real-life situations.

I offer no-obligation private lessons at my friendly premises or at your home, depending on your preferences. Each student benefits from individualized support, at a pace that suits them, according to their experience and desire to learn.

So don’t hesitate, sign up today! Whether your motivation is personal, professional or both, Spanish will give you an enriching insight into the Spanish-speaking world.
