"!Hola a todos! I am Cristina from Madrid!
I started teaching when I was 17 and loved it so much I haven’t done much else since! Everything that followed has focused my career on this path.
I have a degree in teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language and one in Linguistics and Literature. I also have a certificate in Teaching Spanish to Adults from Instituto Cervantes and Roehampton University and QTS in the UK.
I believe learning a language should be fun and useful, which is what I try to convey in my lessons and why I like to bring tasks from the real world into my class."

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 two of 3 levels that form the A1 starting point to learning Spanish. It’s a 20 hour course over 5 weeks aimed at students who have completed level 1. 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.
Very good. Lessons taught at a good pace. Hard but enjoyable. Have revised and learnt a lot.
Overall I enjoyed the course and my understanding of the language has increased.
Patricia is a lively teacher, full of enthusiasm. There is a good mix between activities. The best times in the class are when we have to get up and talk to other students which mixes things up. Nice to see new screens.
Great course, great teacher. I had zero Spanish and after the intensive week I feel like I have an excellent foundation. I’m ready to learn more! I’ll definitely be back!
I enjoyed the interactive method of learning, activities, class discussions, etc. Amaya was a very good teacher; she explains things well and makes the classes very enjoyable.
I think this course was very useful because we got to practice a lot and speak during the class. This is very important because it makes you feel more confident.
Great. I love that we spend more time talking now (although I need to get better at participating in the conversations!)
Great teacher! Very enthusiastic! Encouraging and motivating!
Coral is a great teacher, whose energy and anecdotes help bring the class to life – which is useful after a long day at work! Online support/ homework is good.
