"Hola! I'm Amaya from the famous city of Salamanca!
I studied at University of Salamanca where in addition to my Spanish teaching degree I obtained a Masters degree in teaching Spanish as a foreign language.
I have many years experience in the education sector, including seven as a class teacher (three at Salamanca University) and one as an A-level teacher in London.
Since joining Vamos in March 2012 I have helped develop the school's academic department as well as extra activities here at Holborn and in Spain. In addition to teaching, special projects remains part of my role.
I do hope you enjoy your experience at Vamos. With such a warm and friendly atmosphere it’s really fun to learn!

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 forms part one of the Upper Intermediate B2 syllabus.
It’s a 20 hour course over 10 weeks. 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.
Excellent. Yaiza is an incredible teacher! Fun and effective.
Amaya is a great teacher. I enjoyed her method of teaching. I enjoyed learning with a group and am encouraged to continue progressing.
I enjoyed the classes a lot! They were as good and interesting as the ones in Level 1! Noelia is a great teacher; I’ll go with her to Level 3! Muchas gracias!
Absolutely loved it! Patricia was amazing; so energetic, fun and engaging. The class was always well prepared and organised. I felt very confident by the end of the level to proceed to the next level. It is great that the focus is so much on getting people to speak rather than focusing on grammar. Definitely continuing!
Very interesting engaging and fun. A good way to learn Spanish.
I thought the amount to learn was well judged for an adult group and the quality of teaching Excellent. I intend to continue to the next level.
Great course, really enjoyed it. Ruth is fantastic and makes it fun to learn. It even makes me get up early on a Saturday! Thank you Ruth!
Great class, great teacher. Makes you feel welcome even if you’re late. We covered a variety of topics/ themes. Will definitely continue to Level 10.
I have just completed the Level B2 revision course, which was excellent. We had a great teacher in Amaya, who made every class interesting and informative. A really good way to consolidate our learnings from Intermediate level. Many thanks to all at Vamos!
