We are over the moon to share news that our Spanish Assistant, Óscar Barros, together with the MFL Department at The Cooper School has gained the title of Best conversation Assistant and Spanish department 2018!


When Oscar (our Spanish assistant) approached us with the idea of entering a competition for best partnership between Assistant and Department run by the Spanish Embassy, we jumped at the opportunity. The planning started in October with the organisation of a Spanish play, various exciting speaking activities and the mission to spread the passion for Spanish. Oscar’s infectious enthusiasm rubbed off on everyone! He has worked closely with the department and the students to build their confidence and to foster a passion for languages. The result of this project is confident, enthused students and a life-long friendship between the Department and Oscar.  Out of nearly 200 Spanish language assistants in the UK and Ireland- we won and this is all down to Oscar’s hard-work and determination to be the best Assistant possible.
