"¡Hola a todos! My name is Vanessa and I'm from Galicia, in the North of Spain.
I’m qualified as a Spanish teacher with Roehampton University and Instituto Cervantes in London and I've been teaching Spanish in the UK for more than five years now.
I’m passionate about languages and communication, so teaching my mother tongue is delightful. And being surrounded by students from all over the world and taking part in their progress is really gratifying too.
My interest in Spanish and South-American cultural life and current affairs are supported by a background in Journalism and Art, which means culture and news are often included in my lessons.
For me, learning and having fun are synonymous. You don’t believe me? Let’s meet at Vamos and you’ll see!"
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 the first course in our A2 Elementary levels 4-6.
It’s a 20 hour course aimed at students who have already completed A1 levels 1, 2 and 3. 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.

It was great. The class was very fun and the friendly atmosphere helped me not be so shy about speaking.
An excellent weekend which followed on from my previous courses excelled as always. The work put into the course by Russell and Clara was fully appreciated by all.
Perfect as usual. I like the program. Keep going till the end.
For someone who struggles with languages, I found the course very engaging. They held my attention for the full 4 hours. Easy to follow and I really felt like I was learning so much.
The course has been fun and it has taught me a lot. Teaching was great and I like the fact that Andrea rarely speaks English which helps push everyone that little bit more.
Level 1 is probably the hardest level as it is starting from scratch. Maria has endless patience with us and made all the subjects matter muy claro!
A well run emotional and informative course. The programme is delivered by a professional, passionate and creative teacher.
The teaching was pitched at just the right level and I made definite progress over the 10-week course. It was a very friendly and supportive environment.
Patricia is a great teacher and is very patient. I really liked that she spoke as much Spanish as possible during the class. This is the best way to learn and I really enjoyed the course.
