"¡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!"

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.
There was a great mix of activities – good for a wide variety of learning styles. Andi was also very patient with us and explains things well. The lessons felt fast paced sometimes, but I particularly liked how different topics were built on each week.
Overall the course is great and exactly what I was expecting.
Fantastic as usual. I’ve improved my Spanish so much since the time I started last year. I enjoy coming to attend every class, doing my homework. Good work Noelia!!! Thank you.
Level 2 was even better than level 1. Lots of things going on, great activities. Videos really helped with listening and understanding a lot more things.
I like the way that Amalia breaks up our lessons into different activities. Very good.
Very good. Using the activity book helps me understand what is important and what I have to remember.
Enjoyed the classes and the teaching. There was a good, positive attitude. I’m just sorry I couldn’t put more time into the study!
I’m really enjoying this course. The class is easy to understand. Compared with my previous course at a different place (where I dropped out after the third lesson) it’s really well organised.
It is very nice and helpful. We practice different topics together with the teacher but also in pairs. I’m happy about the course and the progress I have already done.
