"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 three 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 felt at ease and I could learn in a relaxed environment. It took away a lot of the stress I felt about speaking a new language.
Ines was an amazing teacher, always making the classes fun and interactive. Content was good and I felt like I have learnt a lot. Looking forward to my Spanish journey with Vamos.
An engaging and fun environment to learn in, with a good balance of theory and activities – a sufficient level of speaking practice for level 1.
Very good, interesting and fun classes! Especially like the fact that Amaya tells us extra tips and information so we understand the concepts.
I really enjoyed the programme. I like that the focus is on speaking and that we are interactive. The classes are small so there is plenty of opportunity to practice and no hiding!
Well organised. Very good teachers. I have missed some classes and still feel focussed + want to continue.
I thought the whole learning experience was great. Patricia was very helpful and would always set objectives. She covered all we were meant to learn. She was a great teacher and I have learnt much more than I did at my old school. If I were to continue learning Spanish it would definitely be here.
As a whole the service and teaching of this course was great. In some parts when I did not understand something Vanessa explained it better so I understood. The workbook helped a lot as I could look over my work after the session.
Excellent! Diana is a fantastic teacher. The class is fun and challenging at the same time.
