About Vamos

More than 9,000 students have learnt Spanish at Vamos, many of whom have stayed with us and advanced to higher levels

We currently have more than 1,000 students studying at Holborn and we have recently opened new schools in the centre of Canary Wharf and in Valencia.

We’re teaching every level of the Common European Framework (CEFR) with a team of around 35 teachers all of whom are experienced native speakers qualified in teaching Spanish as a foreign language.

The reason so many of our students stay is a combination of our high standards of teaching and friendly, sociable atmosphere; our wide choice and continuity of courses; online support and learning resources, and our uniquely flexible approach.

Teaching and resources

Modern learning technologies in every classroom
Courses structured around official text books
Specially compiled additional resources for every level
Lesson summaries emailed to our students

We’re passionate about everything we do. Our lessons always include interactive activities that encourage speaking, such as games and role-play with teams, groups and pairs, all of which goes to make learning effective.

Each of our courses is structured around an official ‘ELE’ book (Español como lengua extranjera – the term used for Spanish as a Foreign Language) together with a specially compiled set of resources we call a ‘libro de actividades’, which give our teachers a unified framework and make our lessons rewarding and so much fun.

  • We have 20 course levels which follow the Common European Framework Reference (CEFR) syllabus from A1 to C2
  • Each is 20-hours and held at our schools over 1, 5 or 10-weeks. For more information see our levels explained.
  • They end with a self assessment exercise that addresses the course syllabus
  • On completion of each CEFR book we give you a lovely certificate. It shows the number of hours you have attended and the level you have achieved.

Catch up classes

Don’t worry if you miss a class. Many of our students have busy jobs, so we know how difficult it can be to make it to every lesson. We run many courses, so just log into our website and we’ll do our best to offer you the same class on another evening.

Friday conversation classes and tapas

On the last Friday of the month we have an extra free class (existing students only), which is followed by a tapas party .

Vamos is online

All our courses are live, online classes you can join from anywhere.

When the situation changes we will return to Holborn, Canary Wharf and Valencia, but we will always continue to run our courses online as well.

Vamos has been a Zoom partner since August 2019 and in that time we have refined our teaching techniques to ensure our online courses offer the same high standard of teaching and fun, classroom experience that make this school so popular.

Our teachers have also created inventive ways to bring our community together with extra fun activitiesall of which are free.

The Zoom platform combined with our courses and teaching style means you can continue or start your Spanish learning through these difficult times.

Please feel free to call us on 020 7242 3436 if you have any questions.

Stay safe.
