"¡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 and since joining Vamos in September 2012, I am also one of the school's academic managers where part of my responsibilities includes the recruitment and training of new teachers.
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!"

This is a 10-hour course over 5 weeks. It’s fun and informal, specially aligned to the A1 syllabus and a great way to help you practise. Students must have completed level 2 before joining this course.
Classes start with a short grammar and vocabulary revision exercise, followed by a variety of games, roleplays, music and videos all designed to get you talking.
Please note there are no catch up classes available for this course
Fantastic student services! Great lessons and exciting teachers to work with.
Overall it’s a nice and pleasant class. Andi is a great teacher. It’s really enjoyable.
Another great level – thank you very much! Difficult grammar always well explained, good balance of exercises + conversation, above all a fantastic teacher 🙂 Looking forward to Level 11! 🙂
I am really enjoying learning Spanish with Vamos. the group I am in has only 6 people (although it can be up to 8 peopl) which i think is a great size for learning. They also do monthly dinners with group members and teachers which is a great way to improve on your spanish and get to know your group better. I am currently doing Spanish Level 1 but am seriously thinking about continuing with Spanish 2 in the next year. My only regret is that i didnt have time to do the speaking language test before joining as I may have been in a slightly higher class to begin with. this is something that Vamos offer for free and recommend doing and i would strongly recommend this also if you are able to do so. You also receive 2 CDs and a text book with listening and written excersises which really help you along the course.
Andrea is a brilliant teacher – she manages to teach in a fun and relaxed environment – I’ll definitely be back for level 2!
Andrea is truly a lovely person and great teacher. I really enjoy her lessons and classmates that surround me. Every lesson is different and challenging.
The course is well structured, with a variety of activities to make classes fun and enjoyable. Andi is an excellent teacher, and has certainly inspired me to continue.
Excellent programme, excellent teacher. I really like Jessica, she makes the lesson fun and is a good teacher. Good class sizes. Good learning resources. The website is a good learning tool for homework and recap. Would highly recommend the course.
Thank you! I’ve really enjoyed the courses. I’m sorry to be leaving. I wish I could continue! Thank you, Mariluz!
