"¡Hola! my name is Ruth and I am from a small city called ‘Soria’ in Castilla y Leon, which is in the middle of the Iberian Peninsula.
I have a Spanish degree and I am a qualified teacher with a Certificate in teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language from International House and the DTLLS (Diploma in Teaching in the Lifelong Learning Sector) and I have just completed my MA in Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language.
Teaching is my passion. I love giving my lessons as well as preparing them and searching for new activities and materials. My teaching method is communicative and I use a wide range of styles and activities to engage with my students and help turn the classroom into a fun and friendly environment.
I joined Vamos in August 2013 and love working at the school because we offer so much more. The school has also given me the opportunity to develop other skills like creating and developing the characters and interactive activities in our Cava Baja comics, an amazing project the school launched this year.
I hope you enjoy learning 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 course is part two of the Elementary A2 syllabus. It’s a 20 hour course over 10 weeks. 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.
