Samthe Chieftain
From the snowy heights of Scotland to the sunny shores of Spain, Sam, the founder of Bla! is a jack of all trades. Sam has changed from being a suited and booted lawyer in Glasgow to a flip-flop wearing language teacher in Tenerife and is much happier for it. Her English classes are innovative and fun and her warm personality helps students to feel relaxed and to talk freely. Aside from her classes, she also looks after the running of the academy so any query you have, she’s your bilingual gal.

Vickyour English Rose
If you want your children to have the time of their life learning English, sign them up for our kids classes with Vicky! Vicky’s family moved over to Tenerife from England when she was just 7 years old and if it wasn’t for her red hair and white skin, listening to her speak Spanish, you would think she was Canarian! Her passion for languages directed her towards her TEFL qualifications, preparing her for her position here at Bla! There is never a dull moment in her classes and her class sing-songs can be heard throughout the school.
