"¡Hola! ¿Qué tal? I’m Maria and I come from Villanueva de los Infantes, a small town in the region of Castilla La-Mancha, very famous for Don Quijote and manchego cheese!
I have a degree in Translation and Interpreting by the University of Granada and an MA in Teaching English as a foreign language. I am a fully qualified teacher in Spanish and I hold my QTS. I am also a certified DELE examiner by the Instituto Cervantes for levels A1 to B2.
Since I moved to England 5 years ago, I have been working as a Spanish teacher for adults and children in Birmingham and now in London.
I feel passionate about languages and I always try to transfer my enthusiasm to my students in all my lessons. I believe learning languages means having lots of fun and that is why my lessons are full of games and enjoyable activities to make students practice Spanish while having a great time.
Get ready to have a great time while learning one of the most spoken languages in the word! I look forward to seeing you 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 is part one of 3 levels that form the A1 starting point to learning Spanish. 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.
Great opportunity to learn and practice Spanish, to learn about Spain and above all to enjoy the company of other students learning Spanish. Well worthwhile and brilliantly put together. Language, culture and fun all in one package.
This was a really worthwhile trip and I would recommend it to anyone wanting to brush up on their Spanish or consolidate their knowledge.
The activities were very fun and interactive. A great way to speak Spanish and learn vocabulary. Overall a great week with a great bunch of people. The restaurant options were good.
