"¡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 over 10 weeks. 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 think it´s really great. I feel I´m progressing in the language at a very good speed. The teaching is really great!
Paula is an excellent teacher. The lessons are fun and very enjoyable. She explains some very difficult concepts in an easy way to help us understand.
What a fantastic course! I have learned so much in such a short time. I can’t wait to speak Spanish fluently. With this program I am sure I will be able to do so within this year. Muchas Gracias Maria.
Good to know more into the grammar and learn more ways to express opinions, etc. There was lots of conversation in class. Elena is a fantastic teacher and adds lots of interesting content to the lessons about Spanish culture.
Very impressed by the teaching methods, activities, conversations in the class. Love the week emails and screenshots of what we have learnt.
Excellent class! Excellent teacher! Excellent course administrator! Thank you!
Very enjoyable. After a long day at work I really like how the lessons are fun whilst challenging. I’m already seeing major improvements and I can’t wait to start level 3.
Very good class. Really enjoyed it. Challenging. Clara is a very conscientious teacher, very thoughtful and helpful.
I think the program is valuable, both teachers were very good.
