"¡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 the final part of our A1 course and prepares students for the Elementary A2. It’s a 20 hour course over 10 weeks aimed at students who have already completed A1 levels 1 and 2. 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 really enjoy learning Spanish at Vamos, and Andrea has a fun and interactive way of teaching. I look forward to the next level in the course.
Great enthusiasm which never makes attending the class a tiring thought. Something I look forward to doing after work.
I’ve been studying Spanish for over a decade now, throughout my school years and whilst at university, but I can, without doubt, say that the time that I’ve spent at Vamos has been the most beneficial for me on my Spanish-learning journey.
I started my lessons here nearly a year ago with Paula Granados as a teacher and have continued with her as my teacher for a number of levels. She has been by far the best language teacher I have EVER had because you can really tell how much she loves to teach and help her students feel comfortable and confident in her classes.
My time at Vamos has taken my Spanish language to the next level, not only in terms of vocabulary and grammar but most importantly, in terms of confidence. I no longer have the crippling fear of talking and making mistakes in front of others that I used to experience during my time as school/university. Every class/activity I have taken here has such a welcoming and compassionate vibe where students feel free to express themselves without fear of making mistakes, as it should be whenever someone is learning a new skill.
I’m forever grateful that I came across Vamos (and Paula!) and my only regret is that I didn’t come across it sooner!!
