Join your course from home or work. It’s the next best thing to being at the school. You just need a laptop, pc or tablet with either built in (or external) camera and microphone.
"Hola! I'm Amaya from the famous city of Salamanca!
I studied at University of Salamanca where in addition to my Spanish teaching degree I obtained a Masters degree in teaching Spanish as a foreign language.
I have many years experience in the education sector, including seven as a class teacher (three at Salamanca University) and one as an A-level teacher in London.
Since joining Vamos in March 2012 I have helped develop the school's academic department as well as extra activities here at Holborn and in Spain. In addition to teaching, special projects remains part of my role.
I do hope you enjoy your experience at Vamos. With such a warm and friendly atmosphere it’s really fun to learn!

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 Intermediate B1 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.
The program is structured very well with flexibility to accommodate public holidays and work commitments. Carol is an enthusiastic and engaging teacher.
Getting more difficult in level 3. Need to keep reviewing what we learnt moving forward. Amaya is excellent!
Very good course, enjoyed every second of it. Our teacher explained everything very clearly and in understandable manner. I would recommend it to anybody.
As a complete beginner I have really enjoyed the classes. We learnt a lot each lesson but time was factored in to practise and the materials provided were very useful. Our teacher was fantastic.
I enjoyed the classes and how much we recap things. Being in a class with some stronger students is difficult but it’s an opportunity to practice more!
Ruth was very creative and I had fun while learning. It was very interactive and very easy to learn as there was enough time spent on each person to get things right. The course is highly recommended.
Learning was very enjoyable and Amaya has a great energy. Personally I struggle with verbs, but I missed a couple of classes and also had a break between Level 1 and Level 2.
The programme fulfilled my needs and Andi’s enthusiasm and patience is very helpful. The amount of homework is ideal for anyone with a demanding career. I would like to see more online materials, maybe some video/audio files/lessons which enables students to study while commuting.
I have recently commenced the Level 1 course and Clara is an excellent teacher!
