We couldn’t be happier to announce that after 4 wonderful years on Pau Claris, we have decided to move a street down. Our office space has improved and we cannot wait to show you how.

Please take note that as of October 1, 2015 you will find us setting up business on Arago 290, ppl Barcelona 08009.             Click here for an interactive map.

We look forward to seeing you there and inviting you to a glass of Cava to celebrate!


This week we have been speaking with many of you about your summer adventures and where you went, what you saw, and who you met with. But, sometimes, you find yourselves at a loss for words or simply using the same adjectives all the time. So, we thought it would be a great idea to give you a list of the typical words we use daily and options on how to use more varied vocabulary.

One of the activities I have been doing with students these last few weeks is working on talking about cities. I ask them to describe their favorite cities and their least favorite. Once we have an idea of what cities are on your list, we work on describing them with words like crowded, fashionable, cool, expensive, noisy and then I ask students to come up with two synonyms for each of those words and then 2 antonyms. Not an easy task!

Why don’t you give it a try? If you get stuck (can’t think of any words) try using a Thesaurus. This is my go to online Thesaurus

I also love testing my vocabulary:  Test your vocabulary here

The Guardian also wants to test you

And here is a link to improve your vocabulary on a daily or weekly basis.

Now that you have expanded yourself, choose a go to word that will impress everyone. Mine is plethora. Go to this link for 100 words to impress an Native English Speaker!
