There is a note on the library in Playa Blanca about Spanish classes. They will be Tuesday and Thursday 10.00 -12.00 or Monday and Wednesday 16.00 - 17.00. You have to call 928 836834 to find out when the enrolment date and time are. Also while i am on here, can anyone explain what wealth tax is?

Hi
For a (fairly) simple explanation of the Spanish Wealth tax see
http://www.google.es/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=w ... 2042,d.ZGU
Hopefully this will help....basically its a tax on your gross worth worldwide if you are resident here or just on your Spanish assets if you are not, over a certain amount at midnight on 31/12 you pay....under that amount you don´t......which is one of the reasons it is important to complete Form 720 if you are fiscally resident here and still own property or assets in the UK/abroad.

Hi,

Alex, thanks for the info about Spanish classes. I phoned that number but unfortunately nobody speaks English there, and my Spanish is not there yet to ask even a simple questions, not to mention understanding the reply. Did anybody learned a bit more about those classes? Is there going to be a beginners level? Where and how to enrol? What are the costs?
Best,

Michal

Typical Canary style, the Offices at the bus station said the person that deals with this will only be there on Monday mornings. They gave me a form to fill in and take back. So i asked at the library in Playa Blanca and she told me just turn up at what ever session is ok for you. They will access you. I will probably go to the session on Wednesday evening, but will have a look in on Tuesday morning, but not stopping as we go swimming Tuesday and Friday mornings, then stop for a coffee in the Roca Mar and practise our Spanish. Some of our group have good Spanish and one if them is Spanish!

There are adverts for private lessons in the gazette. In the past the free lesson here begin very full then after a few weeks people stop going. The last lessons i went to at the library, in the end there was only about 4 of us!
