About Vamos


More than 7,000 students have studied Spanish at Vamos, many of whom have stayed with us and advanced to higher levels.

We currently have around 1,000 students studying at Holborn and we’ve 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
Vamos blog – stay in touch and keep on learning
Cava Baja – see our blog for interactive activities
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 .
