Hi all 

I am in El Puerto de Santa Maria for 3 months with a view to moving here after Ive cleared some ends in Bahrain where I have lived for 12 years. 

I am British and my BF who American. Hes working most days so im looking to meet some new friends. I have only just picked up a learn Spanish book so I cant manage even a sentence yet. 

Be great to meet some new people or to get some advise where I could go and socialise and hopefully learn some Spanish at the same time. 

Also hoping to find a group of cyclists once i get my bike here....

Look forward to hearing from you :)

Mateo

Hiya!  Have you discovered the Facebook group and/or WhatsApp group for expats in Cadiz, El Puerto and Jerez?  It's very active and there are often activities arranged (although fewer in the summer).  In fact, a few of us newbies are meeting up for the first time tonight in Jerez.  I'll PM you my email / whatsapp number if you're interested.  My wife, Debs, and I are going along from our home in Paterna de Rivera.
Cheers,   Matt

Thank you for getting back to me. I’m actually leaving in a couple of days for a road trip so have lots to do. Hoping to be back in a couple of months so if you don’t mind I’ll keep your number that I received separately and see if there’s anything happening when I’m back. 

I’ll also see if I can find the Facebook pages 


really appreciate you taking the time 


regards

No worries, Kelly.  You're most welcome.

Have a great road trip and don't hesitate to give either Debs or me a call when you're back.

Cheers,  Matt

Hi, I spend 8 months in El Puerto every winter and due to go back in October, I have been learning Spanish from a very nice local lady who is lovely and  extremely helpful in many ways, I could give you her number if you're interested? I started learning from scratch last year whilst there.

 Whereabouts in El Puerto will you be living?

Kind regards

Claire

Hi Claire,

I no longer do Facebook but having checked with Debs, the group you're looking for is titled: Expats Cadiz/El Puerto/Jerez

I believe there's a link to apply to join the WhatsApp group on that page.

Maybe catch up sometime.

Cheers,   Matt

Hi Claire, 

I'm in El Puerto for the month of October to explore, would love to get your Spanish teachers details if possible? I'm thinking about living here from autumn to spring too.  I'm guessing if you're returning you are finding it works for you? 

Regards and thanks, 

Gráinne

Hi Grainne, my teacher is called Maria Jose Perles Puente, she does not have a teaching qualification but works as a teacher hence why her lessons are quite a lot cheaper than other local teachers. She is fluent in English and French  and has quite a few students, She is very flexible with her lessons, her number is 644598597 and she is on Whatsapp.  She loves meeting people and has been so so helpful to us is so many ways whilst we've been in Spain, translating and helping with official stuff.

This will be our 4th winter in El Puerto and I love it.xx

Hope this is helpful

Kind regards
