Who are we?

Welcome to Spanish Obsessed, a site dedicated to helping you learn Spanish. We are Rob and Liz, from London and Colombia, and we started this site to share our passion for this incredible language and culture.

Rob’s story


I first tried to learn Spanish after deciding that I would live in Valencia for a couple of years to teach English after graduating from university. I struggled through evening classes and an intensive course when I first arrived. While steeped in the Spanish lifestyle and culture of Valencia, I tried various approaches to improving my Spanish, and stumbled my way to reasonable fluency. After a couple of years in Spain, I moved to Ecuador and Colombia for 6 months, and got to grips with not only the huge change in culture, but also the differences in Spanish.

Back in London, one night at a Salsa party I bumped into a dark-eyed Colombiana called Liz…


Liz’s story


We exchanged numbers, with Rob promising English lessons in exchange for my giving him Salsa classes – the rest is history! I had been in London for a few months to study English and further my Legal career, and several years after we still find ourselves here! I speak English now, but Rob’s Salsa still has plenty of room for improvement!

What is Spanish Obsessed?
