"¡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 two of 3 levels that form the A1 starting point to learning Spanish. It’s a 20 hour course over 2 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.
I’ll be back. Well done. Love the possibility for replacement classes and conversation classes. Lovely people. Amaya is just superb.
It really met my objectives and my goals. I improved a lot my Spanish. I easily can have a conversation now. I love the method of Andrea. She is really helpful and ready to explain your doubts and uncertainties even for the 1000th time.
I really enjoyed the programme and the intensity of it has brought me a long way in just 5 weeks. The lesson round-ups emailed to us have been immensely helpful and the exercises in the Vamos activity book were great.
Fantastic teacher, Andrea is very enthusiastic about teaching and you can tell it is her passion! Interesting mixture of exercises and activities…A well-structured course.
Amaya is an excellent teacher – very patient and engaging and always pitches the classes at the correct level.
Yaiza is a fantastic teacher – she has energy and patience. She is also aware of how quickly each student picks up certain aspects of the course – and for anyone struggling she will dedicate more time to a specific exercise without making the rest of the class feel disengaged – she encourages everyone to participate in a very positive way.
I really enjoyed each class. A great teacher made every lesson fun!
All classroom teaching was well planned, there were lots of different activities; very good. The e-mail of the class activities is very useful.
I thought the programme and teaching was exceptional. The classes were interactive and the atmosphere was welcoming and comfortable. Will be doing level 2 for sure. 🙂
