"¡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 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.

Very fun, well-paced and even when I miss a lesson, I feel there is help at hand + resources online I can make use of 🙂 See you at level 3! 🙂
Excellent programme – especially being able to do 2 classes a week. It felt like we learnt so quickly. Teaching is excellent too – lots of enthusiasm and great at making things stick in your mind.
Andrea is a great teacher, really engaging and clear. Level 2 covered a good range of topics. Muchas gracias, hasta la proxima nivel.
Amaya is the best teacher I ever met. The class is so entertaining and full of important and interesting information and activities. Looking forward to start level 6 with Amaya and enjoy Spanish language.
• Very informative
• Very enjoyable
• Very challenging
I am continuing to enjoy learning with Vamos.
It’s nice to have an email after each class – a quick revision of the lesson. Vanessa is amazing. Her classes are fun and very easy to follow. Gracias!
Amaya makes excellent posts; the class is well structured, interesting + informative.
Very fun and informative! The fact I look forward to every lesson on a Monday, when I am usually wishing for the day to be over means that I enjoy the classes very much 🙂 I am looking forward to continue and gain more confidence in speaking Spanish.
The weekend was brilliant fun! Everybody was lovely, got on well and gelled as a group. It was very busy so I recommend going out well rested! The activities were amazing, especially canoeing in the lakes – it’s a stunning place.
