Hey friend, I'm Esther.

Kaixo lagun, Esther naiz.

Hey friend,
I'm Esther.

Hey friend,
I'm Esther.

If you want to learn Basque and you're an Expat, have Basque roots or love languages, you're in the right place.

I’m a teacher with 20+ years of experience & I’m an Euskaldun berri or a new Basque learner just like you!

So, you can think of me as your new BFF in your journey to learn this ancient & mysterious language!

I now know what it’s like to be a language learner.

But it wasn't always this way...

As a daughter of immigrants, I was always surrounded by language learners.  My parents learned English when they moved to the US, and I learned it when I went to school as a 5-year old.  At home, I would I would use Spanish with my parents and English with my brother.

In college, I was studying Biology & Chemistry along with Spanish with hopes of becoming a doctor.  However, literally a month before graduation, while soaking in the sun in Puerto Vallarta, I made a change.

I decided I wanted to be a teacher!  

So I graduated, but stayed one more year to earn my teaching degree.

From there, I went on to teach many courses ranging from Biology, Chemistry and Spanish to Leadership.  But, I still really didn’t know how to be a language learner.

When did I truly begin to learn?

That happened in 2011, when I started to learn Basque…one of my childhood dreams!


When I started learning Basque, I started to see how to become an even better language teacher.


I understood the challenges that YOU as a learner might face.


After all these years of teaching & helping students in the classroom, I decided in 2019 that I wanted to create courses to help Expats, people with Basque roots & language lovers learn Basque from anywhere around the world.


My passion for teaching, learning & my Basque culture continues, as I help you become an EUSKALDUN BERRI!

Learning a new language can be difficult & intimidating.

That's why I want to be here for you as you start this journey!

Because there are several books and other resources out there from people who know Basque, but they’re targeting Spanish or French speakers only.

So you end up trying to learn, but you find it difficult when you can’t quite relate to the materials.

Or it’s impossible for you to travel to an intensive school, like I did. So you keep putting it off.


I want to empower and let you know that...

  • you CAN start learning Basque today
  • you CAN do it from home
  • and if you CAN commit to a schedule to study & practice what you learn consistently, you WILL start to speak, to use, and to connect with people in your community or with your family roots!

If you're anything like me, you want...

  • to learn at your own pace
  • to ask your teacher questions
  • to have explanations in English

That’s why I created the Pintxo Pote Mini-Basque Course. To help you get started on learning this mysterious language..

All you have to do is give me your email address and commit to taking the Mini-Basque Course, an introductory mini-course unlike any other you’ll find online that will show you some basic vocabulary & grammar to use right away.

Without boring lessons, simple grammar explanations that I will relate to what you know. You may not remember English grammar rules, but with my experience I’ll clear it up for you.

My goal for you is to learn, use & love Basque like I do…
