"!Hola a todos! I am Cristina from Madrid!
I started teaching when I was 17 and loved it so much I haven’t done much else since! Everything that followed has focused my career on this path.
I have a degree in teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language and one in Linguistics and Literature. I also have a certificate in Teaching Spanish to Adults from Instituto Cervantes and Roehampton University and QTS in the UK.
I believe learning a language should be fun and useful, which is what I try to convey in my lessons and why I like to bring tasks from the real world into my class."
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.

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.
The class was very interactive and the activities made learning Spanish very fun! The two hour sessions went by quickly. Elsa was extremely patient and was a great teacher. There were lots of opportunities to converse with classmates during the class, which helped make me more and more comfortable with speaking.
Ruth is an excellent teacher. She makes the atmosphere fun + easy going. I can’t believe I’ve learnt so much so quickly.
I really enjoy the course. It has met all my objectives and I want to continue learning Spanish. Clara is a wonderful teacher.
Andrea was excellent. She was prepared, punctual and dedicated. She constantly brought interesting topics to class and she challenged us. If you wanted extra work she produced it willingly. Excellent teacher!! Outstanding!
Awesome, I love Elvira, she’s fun, kind, patient and a great profesora.
I liked the course and would like to come back in the New Year for the next level with Fran.
Getting more difficult in level 3. Need to keep reviewing what we learnt moving forward. Amaya is excellent!
The teacher is an essential and valuable asset to Vamos. Never allow her to leave! She is amazing and feel honoured to be under her tutelage.
