"¡Hola! I’m Andrea from Bilbao, in the north of Spain!
I have a 4-year degree in Spanish Studies from the University of Deusto, which covered linguistics, literature, grammar and the history of the Spanish language and I later qualified as a teacher of Spanish as a Foreign Language.
I am an official DELE examiner (awarded by Institute Cervantes, London) for levels A1 to C2.
Since joining Vamos in September 2012, I became part of the academic department where my responsibilities included the recruitment and training of new teachers.
I am now the school's Director of Studies.
My teaching style places particular emphasis on the communicative approach and I always want my students to get the most out of their lesson.
I love teaching so much that it hardly feels like a job and I hope you enjoy your course 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 course is part two of the Intermediate B1 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 was a good mixture of practical and theory. Amaya made the lessons fun using music, videos and games to mix the learning methods up. Amaya is like a positive ball of energy in our classes, which is just what you need to keep the learning enjoyable.
Really good program. Class sizes a perfect way to learn quickly and effectively. Great teacher interaction and time to practice what you have learnt in class. I have will continue to recommend this class/program to anyone interested in learning Spanish. Muchas gracias hasta luego y os veo en el siguente nivel.
Great! Again Clara is a great teacher!
I thought the program was great. We covered a lot and Andi is a patient, fun and supportive teacher.
I highly recommend this program to anyone thinking about learning Spanish…
Very focused on speaking and an emphasis on conversation. Grammar is also covered where required. There is a good general mix of tasks and activities.
A great teacher who leads an interactive class. It’s a great way of learning.
Effective! I definitely feel I have made progress!
I found the course really engaging, fun and interactive. I really appreciated the flexibility of being able to attend catch up classes but must say Carla’s classes stand out as the best! It really sinks in more with all the interactive quizzes and activities.
