"¡Hola! My name is also Alba and I come from Valencia!
I hold a degree in Spanish Studies (Universitat de València) and I am currently studying a Master’s degree in Spanish as a Foreign Language at Universitat de Barcelona. I have been teaching Spanish in an immersion context in Valencia for one and half years and I previously taught Spanish in Tallinn (Estonia) as a part of an internship.
I am an enthusiastic and inspiring language teacher who loves sharing her passion about the Spanish language and our culture. Teaching languages is a beautiful job because it works towards building bridges between people and cultures.
There is nothing more rewarding than seeing my students getting to know each other through Spanish and gaining the confidence to communicate in the language and learn about Spanish and Latin American culture.
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 course is part four of the Intermediate B1 syllabus.
It’s a 20-hour course during which you 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 social and great bunch of people. Very personable school with a warm environment. Always look forward to coming to class each Wednesday. Met all the course objectives. Good use of Facebook and post class follow up
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!
Sara is a very kind, fair and encouraging teacher. Her classes are fun and I learned a lot. Thank you 🙂 Gracias!
Very impressive. Lessons were structured in a way that introduced new vocabulary and grammar, while keeping you engaged. Emphasis was made on communicating with others, which is the reason I signed up for the course in the first place. Finally, Ruth was always very helpful and understanding. She is a very good educator. Thanks! Will definitely come back.
En mi opinion, the program as a whole is excellent as it offers a wide variety of learning methods, with speaking being especially useful. It was also fun with a friendly atmosphere and it was easy to rearrange lessons when necessary.
The program covered what I expected to learn well and all the teachers I have met have been very enthusiastic about teaching.
I had the pleasure of learning Spanish with Joan Moar from Level 2 to Level 6 and I have only positive things to say about my instructor and lessons! Joan was the perfect instructor for me and gets an A+ rating! He is an excellent teacher: Professional, knowledgeable of the Spanish language & culture, personable, responsible, kind, and patient! He really helped me to improve speaking, reading, and writing in Spanish, as well as to learn more verb tenses, vocabulary, and to become comfortable conversing about everyday life in Spanish. Even after my lessons were moved online due to the pandemic, Joan was still able to make every lesson immersive and challenging. I am so grateful for the opportunity you gave me to help further my Spanish language learning! It was truly a great experience taking lessons from Joan and I would recommend him to anyone looking to learn or improve their Spanish.
It was planned in an excellent manner and well coordinated. All the activities were on time. The food was excellent and I would recommend the weekend to anyone studying Spanish. I’m looking forward to the next trip thank you!
Andi is a great teacher and she really took her time to explain every topic so we understood everything. The program covered a lot of topics and was very interesting.
