"¡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 course is part two of the Elementary A2 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.

The program is excellent; you learn very quickly but don´t realise it because it´s so fun. The learning environment is very relaxed and small class sizes means you get the individual attention you need.
I have learnt enough to be able to go on holiday to a Spanish speaking country and get around without any problem!
I enjoyed every lesson. There is always so much fun + we learn a lot. Elvira is great and full of energy which makes learning easier.
Really interactive and enjoyable classes. Enric keeps the lessons fun and well structured. I enjoy coming to the classes after work. Would definitely recommend.
Sandra was an awesome teacher. She made the learning so much more interesting and lively with her jokes. Enjoyed my time here 🙂
I felt the programme was very well run and organised. The class sizes were just right for the pace of the class and Ines kept us all engaged and interacted throughout. Ines was very friendly and comfortable to chat to and learn from and I learnt a great deal. Thanks so much and I look forward to many more great lessons at Vamos!
Great atmosphere, the small classes work really well as we have lots of practising time! Everyone is very friendly:)
The program and course content were very well designed and provided good examples and exercises to help understand the complexities in the language. Diana took great care in addressing our queries in a clear and concise method.
Excellent programme and Elena was so enthusiastic throughout the course. She has made me want to keep learning through to level 2 and beyond! Handout materials are excellent and describe things in a simple way to understand.
Great. I love that we spend more time talking now (although I need to get better at participating in the conversations!)
