"¡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 two 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 is part two of 3 levels that form the A1 starting point to learning Spanish. It’s a 20 hour course over 10 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.
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.
Paula is a vibrant and gifted teacher who taught us a lot about Spanish culture and art with great enthusiasm. The group gelled very well and I enjoyed the classes very much. It was all made even better by taking place in such a lovely town.
