I come from UK and live in south of Galicia for the last 16 years.

Hi, thank you for answering.

Do you work here in Galicia or have you retired - 16 years is a reasonable time to become a native.
We have only ben here in Meis since last September but having bought our home, we love the area and all the surroundings of the Rias Baixas.

It would be good to hear from you again and may be we could meet up sometime.

Not retired, I have a small business but - as you will have noticed - the economy is getting glummer, so I am thinking of moving on. But I have to admit, it is one of the best places to live and my wife and children were all born here so it is going to be a tough decision.
We live in Nigrán, on the coast just past Vigo.

Where is the best place in Galicia for English speakers with very little Spanish? I am planning on learning Spanish of course but for starters I would like to be able to find an apartment etc. using English.

Hello I have just joined would love English/Spanish friends to talk to in Galicia.I am currently learning the Spanish language .so please be patient !!

Hello I am half Spanish and half English just moved to Vigo to look after my grandmother would like to meet with English people to meet for coffee :) and chat :)

Next month I am moving to Vigo to live with a Spanish family as an au pair.  I currently have very little Spanish knowledge and would love to know other people in the area :)

Hello, I am currently living in Galicia and would love to get to know some english speakers. Hit me up!

Just started a teaching contract in Vigo , hoping to meet some Native. If you would like to talk don't hesitate to contact me!



Hi All,
My name is Mark Bellamy, I am traveling up to Galicia next week with a 12 cu mtr van full of belongings and returning to Andalucia empty. anyone wanting anything taking south please contact me 0034 669255968 or 0034634352354
waiting in anticipation

Hi all, I am also currently living in Galicia close to Santiago since my girlfriend is from this region. Because we recently moved from Portugal to here we didn't succeed in finding work yet. Now my girlfriend has an opportunity to get a fixed in Vigo, so if all goes well we are thinking of moving there on short term. I have also been searching in Vigo and surroundings, but haven't found something that could fulfill my requierements as I speak only medium level Spanish. I have followed a forest management study, but have experience in all sorts of other work. Besides English and some Spanish, I am a native Dutch and am quite good at German. So, if anyone has any job suggestions in Galicia (Santiago, Pontevedra, Vigo) or would just like to socialise with a fellow English speaker living in Galicia just let me know! Cheerio, Bart

Hi there

I'm not Australian, but i do speak English.

Whereabouts in Galicia ?


Hi there,

I'm not Australian either but I live with My partner is from Brisbane. We are living in A Coruna.  He is bilingual too so Spanish  is not a problem but we don't have many expats living in the area where we live.

Let me know if you have any questions about Galicia. My dad is from Sanxenxo in Pontevedra and my mum from A Coruna so I know pretty well. ;)


Hi! I live in Cangas,  next to Vigo and Im looking for a job.  Started to learn Spanish but not even close to speaking with confident. Also looking for friends to meet up with.

Hi| Lisss. I used to live in Vigo and Know cangas well. By the way my name is Jackie and I am living in o Mosteiro Meis amongst he Albarino wine groves . To make a few bob I give private english classes to kids and charge 10 euros an hour. Try putting an add in your local cafe etc and I am quite sure you will have a result, the Galician people like native english teachers as there are few here, hope that helps. Maybe we could meet up in the future. By the way you don't have to have a diploma in teaching english.

Jackie, Simon is my Husband.
