"¡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.

The structure is good and the program covered many topics. Andi makes the classes interactive and she is well prepared for classes.
Good. Would recommend to others.
I thought the course moved at a great pace and working through activities in class really helped with remembering words and grammar. Ruth is an excellent teacher who is always happy to explain anything to the class.
Great work from Clara! A professional teacher with great desire to teach 🙂
An excellent course – Thank you to Elena and Vamos
The programme was very enjoyable and challenging. Maria was very thorough, fun, enabling and encouraging. She motivated me to want to learn. Muy muy bien.
Ruth is very approachable, patient. Explanations given in a simple way. She makes the classes fun and open but maintains a learning environment. Lessons appear to follow a sensible pattern.2 months is a good enough time but it becomes difficult/ boring / tiring. Good mixture of teaching styles. I will not attend more lessons if no Ruth.
Fun, engaging class. Lots of content to take in.
I really enjoyed the classes – very interactive and speaking-based.
