"¡Hola! I’m Andrea from Bilbao, in the north of Spain!
I have a 4-year degree in Spanish Studies from the University of Deusto, which covered linguistics, literature, grammar and the history of the Spanish language and I later qualified as a teacher of Spanish as a Foreign Language.
I am an official DELE examiner (awarded by Institute Cervantes, London) for levels A1 to C2 and since joining Vamos in September 2012, I am also one of the school's academic managers where part of my responsibilities includes the recruitment and training of new teachers.
My teaching style places particular emphasis on the communicative approach and I always want my students to get the most out of their lesson.
I love teaching so much that it hardly feels like a job and I hope you enjoy your course 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 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.

Excellent, great mixture of exercises and learning methods. Andrea is engaging and creates a great teaching environment!!
I really enjoyed the teaching methods and the class activities and I also like how fast we are learning new materials every class as it an intensive course.
Doing Vamos Spanish lessons has been brilliant! Ruth was a great teacher and the lessons were fun and very useful for progressing my Spanish!
I find Amaya’s teaching methods are great. She has a way of interacting with the class and engages everyone so that we all feel comfortable to practise our Spanish.
I would highly recommend Vamos to anyone who wants to learn Spanish in a fun and friendly environment.
I think Isabel is a great teacher! She has a teaching gift and explains everything so it is easily understood! She always answers all questions and makes everything easier for us. Big thank you!! Love her lessons.
I find Clara’s teaching method extraordinary!
Again, another great course.
Very authentic teaching and an enjoyable class. It was a pleasure to be learning with tutor Andrea.
I enjoyed practicing my speaking skills, as this is what I find the hardest. I like the social events too. I found the conversation classes very useful and a lot of fun. I like walking around asking questions or swapping places with other people, who like the same thing. Elsa is a great teacher and very approachable and pushes me to try speaking in Spanish as much as possible.
