"¡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.
Since joining Vamos in September 2012, I became part of the academic department where my responsibilities included the recruitment and training of new teachers.
I am now the school's Director of Studies.
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 is part one of 3 levels that form the A1 starting point to learning Spanish.
It’s a 20 hour course. You will follow an established model of teaching through spoken and written activities, extra reading, tests, reviews, ideas, and games in pairs or groups.
We use powerful learning tools such as presentations, images, videos and audio tapes that stimulate our lessons and encourage students to engage with each other in developing the four essential skills – reading, speaking, listening and writing.

Ruth is an excellent teacher. She cares about us all understanding her teaching and always has patience and a sense of humour.
Really enjoyed the programme. Lovely, patient teaching method. Would highly recommend.
This is my second course at Vamos and I’ve really enjoyed it. The lessons are always fun and the different activities mean the time goes really quickly. It’s great having the same teacher as the course develops, and I’m also looking forward to starting the next level
Estupendo! Pasarlo muy bien!
I thought the course gave a good understanding of the Spanish language in general. I thought Elena was excellent throughout, very enthusiastic and always has time for everyone. Gracias Elena!
Excellent course. Fun, engaging and opportunity to improve oral, written and listening skills. Each class is different and each lesson provides an opportunity to learn new vocab, grammar and idiomatic phrases.
I found the program fun and interactive and it has given me a really good foundation. The conversation classes and tapas evenings are a really good idea and a great opportunity to meet people across other courses and levels.
Perfecto for me. Needed something light enough but still detailed.
Amazing course, well taught at a really good pace. Learning everything that I want to, and the homework helps to reinforce what I have learnt in class. Would recommend this course to anyone who wants to seriously learn Spanish.
