"¡Hola a todos! My name is Vanessa and I'm from Galicia, in the North of Spain.
I’m qualified as a Spanish teacher with Roehampton University and Instituto Cervantes in London and I've been teaching Spanish in the UK for more than five years now.
I’m passionate about languages and communication, so teaching my mother tongue is delightful. And being surrounded by students from all over the world and taking part in their progress is really gratifying too.
My interest in Spanish and South-American cultural life and current affairs are supported by a background in Journalism and Art, which means culture and news are often included in my lessons.
For me, learning and having fun are synonymous. You don’t believe me? Let’s meet at Vamos and you’ll see!"

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 forms part three of the Advanced C1 syllabus. 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…
