"¡Hola! My name is Romina and I'm from La Plata, the capital of Buenos Aires province in Argentina.
I am a qualified teacher with a certificate in teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language from Instituto Cervantes and Roehampton University. I also have a degree in Psychology and have worked in the field of education for many years.
I think the best way to learn a language is through communicating and interacting from the start. I love making my lessons enjoyable and creative, using different activities and resources, while sharing aspects of my culture in the process. I find seeing the progress of my students very rewarding as they become more confident using the language in practical situations.
I am looking forward to meeting you 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 two 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.
I am really enjoying learning Spanish with Vamos. the group I am in has only 6 people (although it can be up to 8 peopl) which i think is a great size for learning. They also do monthly dinners with group members and teachers which is a great way to improve on your spanish and get to know your group better. I am currently doing Spanish Level 1 but am seriously thinking about continuing with Spanish 2 in the next year. My only regret is that i didnt have time to do the speaking language test before joining as I may have been in a slightly higher class to begin with. this is something that Vamos offer for free and recommend doing and i would strongly recommend this also if you are able to do so. You also receive 2 CDs and a text book with listening and written excersises which really help you along the course.
I have really enjoyed this course. I like the way Ruth encourages us to speak in Spanish as much as possible. We have covered grammar points I really wanted to learn.
Me gusta mucho Patricia porque ella es muy divertida!
I joined Clara´s Level 2 at lesson 6 and really enjoyed the lessons. She really helped reinforced the material I learned with Noelia, and taught me new vocabulary too! Really enjoyed Clara´s classes and can´t wait for Level 3!!!
It was a good program and I really enjoyed it.
Amazing, so much fun! As an adult learner with a busy life the most important thing is for it to be fun because I would fade with exhaustion otherwise. I wish I had more time for the homework to match the excellent teaching! Will keep trying; it’s tough but very rewarding.
I have really enjoyed the programme and am surprised at how much I have learned. Maria is a very good teacher and makes the lessons very fun.
Fun & enjoyable!
The course was excellent. I will definitely sign up for the next level.
