"¡Hola! my name is Ruth and I am from a small city called ‘Soria’ in Castilla y Leon, which is in the middle of the Iberian Peninsula.
I have a Spanish degree and I am a qualified teacher with a Certificate in teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language from International House and the DTLLS (Diploma in Teaching in the Lifelong Learning Sector) and I have just completed my MA in Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language.
Teaching is my passion. I love giving my lessons as well as preparing them and searching for new activities and materials. My teaching method is communicative and I use a wide range of styles and activities to engage with my students and help turn the classroom into a fun and friendly environment.
I joined Vamos in August 2013 and love working at the school because we offer so much more. The school has also given me the opportunity to develop other skills like creating and developing the characters and interactive activities in our Cava Baja comics, an amazing project the school launched last year.
I hope you enjoy learning 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.
Vamos is fantastic! The classes are interactive and varied in content so each week it’s really easy to build on your exisiting knowledge…
This was the most incredible weekend with memories which will last a lifetime! All in all a 5/5 rating is a real understatement and a testament to the way in which teaching Spanish should be done!”
Vamos do everything they can to support adult learners, appreciating the fact that our busy lives may mean we miss occasional classes so they provide ‘catch up’ opportunities…
