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 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.

I did really enjoy the last 5 weeks. Was very interactive, was very useful and made me (really) deeply interested in the Spanish language. My expectations could totally meet with Ines’ ideas: (really nice and patient teacher, made very calm and friendly atmosphere during this course). I will miss it
Fantastic. Enric is an amazing teacher and I really enjoy coming to his classes every week.
Another fantastic level. Once again I am really happy with both the Vamos course and Patricia’s teaching.
I feel like I am learning a lot and with each lesson my knowledge is solidified more and more!
I will treasure my Diploma and can’t wait for A2
Andi is an excellent teacher – great at explaining things and helping students to focus on things they find difficult. Really friendly class and great opportunities to get involved.
Ruth is very approachable, patient. Explanations given in a simple way. She makes the classes fun and open but maintains a learning environment. Lessons appear to follow a sensible pattern.2 months is a good enough time but it becomes difficult/ boring / tiring. Good mixture of teaching styles. I will not attend more lessons if no Ruth.
I enjoy learning Spanish here in Vamos because everyone is approachable and the class size is just right 🙂
Nice pace and it was good feeling the parts of levels 1 and 2 come together. Looking forward to level 3.
In depth learning. Class participation excellent. Teaching was completed in a timely manner and tempo. Homework is just enough and manageable.
Enjoyable class at a good pace. I learned a lot, very happy with the content and effective teaching method. The teacher cares about her students and is very motivating.
