"¡Hola! I’m Andrea from Bilbao, in the north of Spain!
I have a 4-year degree in Spanish Studies from the University of Deusto, which covered linguistics, literature, grammar and the history of the Spanish language and I later qualified as a teacher of Spanish as a Foreign Language.
I am an official DELE examiner (awarded by Institute Cervantes, London) for levels A1 to C2 and since joining Vamos in September 2012, I am also one of the school's academic managers where part of my responsibilities includes the recruitment and training of new teachers.
My teaching style places particular emphasis on the communicative approach and I always want my students to get the most out of their lesson.
I love teaching so much that it hardly feels like a job and I hope you enjoy your course at ¡Vamos!"
We're a little different from other language schools. Our roots lie in the Spanish further education sector and here at Holborn our students have as much fun learning as we have teaching. That’s why our courses are so effective and why our students say our lessons are rewarding and so much fun.
This 20-hour course is aimed at advanced/proficiency students who wish to further develop speaking skills to communicate fluently and effectively.
Practice fluent and spontaneous communication in different social contexts through a range of topic-based vocabulary and interactive activities.
Listening, reading and writing skills are enhanced through a combination of resources including newspaper articles, TED talks, videos, interviews, short movies and podcasts.
Please note there are no catch up classes available for this course

Very good. Teaching kind, patient and fun! Will be returning to do the next course and continue learning with Vamos. 🙂
Interactive, fun, relevant. Definitely going to continue spanish adventure with Vamos
I’ve had a great time learning Spanish again with Clara – great enthusiasm, great motivation and great patience. The 2 hours pass very quickly with a nice variety of exercises and a friendly group to learn with. Thoroughly recommended!
Really well formatted and organised. Great fun and range of learning techniques. Made it a really great way to learn Spanish. Teaching was excellent and enthusiastic and engaging.
Overall the lessons have been a great continuation from the previous level. Yaiza is very good, energetic and bubbly teacher. We have learnt a vast amount of Spanish in a short period of time. Her lessons are always fun and we have a very good mix of speaking, listening and writing. I have already completed two levels and will be continuing with Yaiza.
As usual, I have really enjoyed Andrea’s classes she is a fantastic teacher. Everyone at Vamos is very helpful.
I really enjoyed the course again, and it begun to be quite challenging, which I enjoyed. I would highly recommend it.
The structure is good and the program covered many topics. Andi makes the classes interactive and she is well prepared for classes.
Always fun whilst educational.
