"¡Hola! I’m Sonia, from Córdoba, a beautiful historical city in the south of Spain.
I hold a BA in English Studies, an MA in Linguistics and another Master’s Degree in Education. I also have a course from the Instituto Cervantes in teaching Spanish as a foreign language.
I started teaching in my first year of university and I haven’t stopped since then. It makes 12 years now. I love teaching because it allows me to participate in something as important as the learning process of amazing individuals.
When I teach, I always try to cause, what I call, “the awe effect of your personal achievements”, which appears when you realise you are learning, understanding and producing more Spanish than you expected. I love making everyone feel comfortable and active in class, making you have fun while learning, and going home with that feeling of a satisfactory evening.
I hope to see you soon in class! ¡Hasta pronto!"
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 three of the Elementary A2 syllabus.
It’s a 20 hour course with 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.

Carmen is an amazing teacher. She manages to make the class fun but also helps us to learn. Due to the activities we do in class, I managed to memorize a lot of vocabulary & grammar. Really happy and pleased to have her as my teacher. She really cares about the students
Andi is the best teacher! She stretches our ability and makes us practise quite often, which helps me to learn and remember!
The program was excellent, I enjoyed the mixture of written work, visual and interactive. The program was excellent value for money, and the class was very friendly.
I really enjoyed and benefited from Carolina’s calm and consistent teaching style, good structure to classes and the opportunity to speak. The level of care and attention to detail dedicated to online communication and resources is fantastic.
Great atmosphere, friendly class. Andrea is patient and helpful. This is a really great class all round. Thank you
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
Overall it’s a nice and pleasant class. Andi is a great teacher. It’s really enjoyable.
Great course and it´s fun the way the basic grammar is combined with new words and phrases. Is easy to understand and speak Spanish. Also, the homework given at the end of each class covers what you need to take away from the class. Probably, the best Spanish course in London!
Found it challenging at times but really enjoyed the course. It is a great group with a fantastic teacher. Looking forward to level 9.
