"!Hola a todos! I am Cristina from Madrid!
I started teaching when I was 17 and loved it so much I haven’t done much else since! Everything that followed has focused my career on this path.
I have a degree in teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language and one in Linguistics and Literature. I also have a certificate in Teaching Spanish to Adults from Instituto Cervantes and Roehampton University and QTS in the UK.
I believe learning a language should be fun and useful, which is what I try to convey in my lessons and why I like to bring tasks from the real world into my class."
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 nice course with a clear structure. Maria is super nice and patient and I look forward to starting A3 with her.
Alba is an excellent teacher and her classes were fun and proactive. The booster course was a very good idea, definitely helped me improve grammar and listening.
I really enjoyed it and I’m definitely continuing with Patricia into another level. Great school, I’ve learned a lot during these 10 weeks. I’m really looking forward to completing all the levels with our lovely Patricia!
As always a great course. Cristina’s teaching methods are brilliant – she’s patient and fun. Although it’s getting more and more difficult, I have every faith Cristina will get us through.
I find Clara’s teaching method extraordinary!
I really enjoyed the course and Carolina is a great teacher. I enjoyed the course work, videos and the pace. Also classmates were fun.
Very well taught, with something different each week to keep the interest.
Great class, will continue in March.
Wonderous as ever. Thank you so much to Amaya and ¡Vamos! for allowing me to speak Spanish and making my Saturday mornings since summer 2012!
