"¡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 course forms part one of the Upper Intermediate B2 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.

Really enjoyed it! Great teacher and fantastic learning environment. Very sad that it has ended.
Will recommend the school!
Overall it’s a nice and pleasant class. Andi is a great teacher. It’s really enjoyable.
Enrique was amazing. Wish I could have stayed for level 2!
It really helped me to understand and indeed learn the Spanish grammar. We also practised listening comprehension, speaking and writing in Spanish which I also tried to practise on my own (on my leisure time).
I love the course. It is really fun to learn Spanish in this programme. Andi is great!
Everything was great : ) Alberto was very attentive and patient and I’d like to come back for the next level.
I thought it was a good introduction to a few of the past tenses and a big step up on level 3 in terms of difficulty.
It was great. Noelia is very enthusiastic, I enjoyed level 1 with her and now level 2 and will be back to do level 3. Having a small class since has been really good. We get a lot of personal tuition!
Very enjoyable course with good learning practical exercises and reading materials. Varied activities, would definitely recommend Asturias (very beautiful!) and the course as a whole. ”Good time with good friends” xxx
