Gareth Bale's language tutor has said that the Welshman's grasp of the Spanish language "is better than what he shows in interviews".
Bale has now lived in Madrid for four years, but has only given a limited number of interviews in Spanish.
"His standard of Spanish is better than what he shows in interviews," Gomez told La Sexta. "Gareth is a perfectionist and until he believes he is flawless at something then he loses a bit of confidence and will sell himself short, he becomes apprehensive.
"My role is to ensure his understanding of Spanish gets better and even more importantly, for his confidence to grow in this aspect. He is aware he needs to keep taking classes and adapt to life in Spain even more."
Bale has scored 70 times in 159 appearances for Real Madrid since joining the reigning European and Spanish champions from Tottenham Hotspur in the summer of 2013.
