"іHola! I am Alba and I am from León, a small and beautiful city in the Northwest of Spain.
I have studied two degrees at the University of León (Spanish language and literature & English language and literature) and also a Master’s degree in teaching Spanish to both native and foreign students (QTS – Qualified Teacher Status). I have also worked for several institutions such as the University of Greenwich.
I am a passionate and enthusiastic teacher who is very willing to teach you some Spanish! And of course not only the language but also some of our culture.
I use the communicative approach in my classes and I try to make them as funny as possible! I truly believe learning does not have to be boring and I also try to break down complicated concepts to simple examples that you are able to understand.
I really hope you enjoy learning with us!"

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.
As with levels 1 and 2, fantastic! Went at a good pace and the teacher supported throughout.
The atmosphere is a relaxed one. The teaching is tailored to each of our needs.
¡Muy bueno! I enjoy coming to class every week as it´s an enjoyable way of learning. Amaya is fantastic! 🙂
The classes are brilliant, Amaya uses a perfect mix of different types of activities. She is patient and has really improved my confidence. The only bad side is the Cds for homework (in the ELE Actual libro). My CD never plays. It would be good to be able to complete homework on line.
¡Muchas gracias Noelia! The course has been fantastic as always. Noelia is a brilliant teacher and her enthusiastic + engaging lessons are perfect to get us all learning Spanish after a long day at work. I have learned loads an am excited about continuing Spanish with Vamos. Noelia – I will miss you!!! Hasta pronto 🙂
Really informative and supportive. Good class environment.
Level 7 was really useful, a good balance of tenses and lots of revision on previous past tenses.
I think it´s really great. I feel I´m progressing in the language at a very good speed. The teaching is really great!
Sandra is definitely the best teacher I’ve ever had and trust me I did have quite a few languages courses before!
