Hello! I’m  Rachel.

I am a qualified teacher with a PGCE and nearly 30 years of experience of teaching French and Spanish.

I love helping people speak languages with confidence.

Try my taster audio in French or Spanish

I’ve got an amazing freebie to get you started.

A free audio – a taster of learning French or Spanish with me.

I guarantee that after 5 days you will be able to have a

conversation with me in French or Spanish

You’ve tried learning on your own with an app. There are some great free ones out there.

In fact, there is so much free help you don’t know where to start.

You’ve tried and given up because it’s too hard on your own.

Wouldn’t it be great if someone who knew what they were doing, could help you work out where you are now, where you want to go and how to get there?

In addition, what if they could add structure and work out a plan for you and support and guide you along the way?

Special opportunity for 2021

Let’s make this the year you learn a language

  • I help you identify realistic goals
  • I help you put what you learn into practice and guide you on pronunciation issues.

Let’s hear from someone who has tried the audio.

I’ve recently completed a weeks short Spanish audio with Rachel Hands Portman and did a session each day whilst I was gardening. I have never tried Spanish before other than the usual Gracias and hola!
It was a fab short course and I really feel as tho I’ve accomplished something new within a few short days. Rachel is very clear in her instructions on the audio and having a short conversation at the end of the course really highlights her fantastic ability to speak Espanol! Thank you Rachel for this fabulous audio. I now have something that allows me to go to Spain and ‘give it a go’ feeling much more confident!

Let’s do something amazing together in 2021
