іHola! I am Maria from Jaén, a small city in southern Spain. I am a qualified teacher with a BA degree in English Language and Literature, a degree in Tourism and a Master’s degree in teaching. I have been teaching for many years including secondary schools in Spain and in London.
I love teaching Spanish but what I like the most is when my students’ confidence grows and I help them achieve their goals. I enjoy meeting new people and exchanging ideas and experiences. I always try to create dynamic, fun lessons where my students are constantly engaged.
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 is part two of 3 levels that form the A1 starting point to learning Spanish.
It’s a 20 hour course aimed at students who have completed level 1. 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.

The program and teachers were great I just wish that in my hectic life I had the time to really soak in completely everything I was taught in the previous lesson. However, Andrea is an excellent teacher which made everything easier to lean, adaptable in every way.
Excellent as always although I still struggle to find time to study enough outside of class. The fact that there is a lot of conversation in class and very helpful suggestions about activities outside of class is very helpful though.
I really enjoy the program and our group of students and teacher that meet on Saturdays. The laid back atmosphere facilitates learning. We learn lots whilst having fun. I have learned a considerable amount.
The program was very well taught – I feel that I’ve learnt a lot in a short space of time. Carol is a very enthusiastic and fun teacher and makes lessons enjoyable as well as informative. An initial course description which breaks down the content of each lesson would be useful, but as I joined late, this might have been given out already.
It was fun and a good introduction to Spanish. The homework was manageable and encouraged practising what you had learnt.
The programme gave me a really good grounding in terms of vocabulary and grammar. Ruth is a great teacher who clearly puts a lot of time and effort into preparing and executing her lessons. Her classes and activities were fun and engaging, and importantly, really helped what we had learned to sink in.
Very enjoyable. Good fun!
Andrea is an incredible teacher and as usual I really enjoyed the classes of this level. Looking forward to the next level!
As usual Clara made me more comfortable despite the fact I have been a terrible student. I found the method very efficient. The interaction with the other students is what I really need as I don’t really have time to study at home.
