"Hola! I'm Amaya from the famous city of Salamanca!
I studied at University of Salamanca where in addition to my Spanish teaching degree I obtained a Masters degree in teaching Spanish as a foreign language.
I have many years experience in the education sector, including seven as a class teacher (three at Salamanca University) and one as an A-level teacher in London.
Since joining Vamos in March 2012 I have helped develop the school's academic department as well as extra activities here at Holborn and in Spain. In addition to teaching, special projects remains part of my role.
I do hope you enjoy your experience at Vamos. With such a warm and friendly atmosphere it’s really fun to learn!
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.

I really liked the way of program especially the way of Amaya – my professor’s teaching. I improved Spanish a lot just feel like I wanna study more and more. The whole program gives to me a big motivation. I would like to thank Amaya for everything. I’m looking for carry on! 🙂
Great fun! Really enjoying the class, I really like the way we keep building on previous weeks (including level 2 + 2). Clara is a fantastic teacher – please can we stay with her for level 4?!
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.
It was very interactive and I was well engaged. Muchos gracias Sara!
Amaya is a fantastic teacher who brings the course to life in an engaging and fun way. The programme challenges me but is set at the right pace.
Susana has a clear and precise style which helps identify objectives and purpose. She makes excellent use of the online learning support area posting information in a consistent way which allows students to focus on learning safe in the knowledge that notes will be available online later.
Ruth is a great teacher! I really enjoy her lessons and have learnt a lot. We have a lot of fun and it’s always a really friendly group. I always go home knowing I have learnt something new.
Very authentic teaching and an enjoyable class. It was a pleasure to be learning with tutor Andrea.
Fun class! Great teaching methods in an enjoyable atmosphere.
