"¡Hola! I’m Alberto from Burgos, in the north of Spain.
I studied at Complutense University of Madrid where I obtained a Degree in English Language and Literature and a Masters Degree in Teaching Spanish as a foreign language.
I follow the communicative approach in my lessons, creating a relaxing and friendly environment in class where everyone feels comfortable and eager to participate and interact with each other.
Teaching my native language is an amazing experience that gives me the chance to meet people from all over the world and share the Spanish language and culture with them.
Looking forward to seeing you in class 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 Proficiency C2 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.

I found the programme to be very good and has given me a good start in learning Spanish. The teacher has been engaging and we have covered a reasonable amount of material. I’m looking forward to Level 2.
Very interactive and challenging. Paula works so hard to engage with everyone. Good school-recommended to friends who have just completed level 1.
Great course as always. Enthusiastic teacher. Lots of interesting activities. Would recommend.
It has been a real pleasure. Alberto as a teacher met my expectations, classes are in small groups and are fun. Materials are very easy to understand. I will continue studying with Alberto if possible.
I like the group exercises and the relaxed and fun atmosphere.
Fantastic as ever – Thank you so much. Have really enjoyed the classes and feel like I have learned a huge amount. Andrea is an excellent teacher – always able to explain difficult grammar points and answer questions, but also so friendly and enthusiastic. The classes are a highlight of my week – looking forward to C1!
