"¡Hola chicos! I am Paula, and I come from the wonderful city of Madrid!
I hold a BA (Hons) from Universidad Complutense de Madrid and a postgraduate in teaching Spanish as a foreign language certified by Roehampton University and Instituto Cervantes. I completed my MA in September 2016 at Kings College London and I am also a PhD candidate at the Open University.
Since completing my degree, I have sought to keep increasing my knowledge of linguistics and communication. I fully appreciate the importance of learning a language and the value it brings to both job and leisure opportunities. For this reason I love teaching at Vamos and developing dynamic and communicative activities where everyone feels welcome and confident. I am also a firm supporter of introducing debate and different contents in the class, so that students can improve their language skills while discussing interesting and current topics.
I love working at Vamos because staff and students have both created a big family. Why don’t you come and join! See you soon at Vamos!"

This is the first course in our A2 Elementary levels 4-6. It’s a 20 hour course over 10 weeks aimed at students who have already completed A1 levels 1, 2 and 3. 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 found the program very good and the five weeks is great for learning fast. The class size was good with enough people. The ‘IT’ side of things needs work as I have had problems receiving email but a small issue.
Excellent! – coming back for more!
I think the program is very good. As I was a total beginner, with no knowledge of Spanish, I found it quite easy to learn new words and grammar on Sandra’s classes. Her materials and methods make you an active student and you have some material but you also have to find some answers on your own such us some words translations so you remember them better, and you have them in context not only single words.
Fun, interactive course. Teachers were very encouraging. The school is very accommodating if you need to miss any classes and will find you a substitute class to attend so you don’t fall too behind. Ines is very funny.
Very interesting engaging and fun. A good way to learn Spanish.
I’ve really learnt a lot and get compliments on my rapid progress by Spanish speaking friends. Neus is a good teacher, very engaging and able to adapt to different types of students.
It´s great that the lessons help absorb more effectively. It gives/ provides a stepping-stone to start learning Spanish and provides solid guidance. I have learned so much from the past 10 lessons. Thank you!!!
I loved how quickly I, and the class, were able to actually speak Spanish – whole sentences not just words! It has definitely whetted my appetite to study further.
I like how Amaya teaches us Spanish. Good group lesson definitely. I personally like other book though
