?Clases de espa�ol pr�ximamente en los Fens: Spanish lessons coming to the Fens

A BUSINESSWOMAN is set to bring a touch of the Mediterranean to the Fens by starting Spanish lessons in the district.

Harriet Tuckett lived on the Costa Blanca for 11 years before returning to the UK to read Spanish at the University of Chester.

With a wealth of cultural experience under her belt and a BA honours degree the 23-year-old is now bringing her business, The Spanish Academy, to Tilney St Lawrence.

Miss Tuckett said: “When I set my business up in Fritton (near Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft) last year I had an amazing response so I’m sure it’ll be popular in the Fens now I’ve moved here.

“If you want to learn a language it helps being surrounded by people that speak it - and I’ve had that advantage. That way you pick things up, like when you want to order a cup of coffee, and you begin to understand the culture.
