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 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.
Over a 14 week period your teacher will facilitate a group conversation and discussion of three masterpieces of literature in Spanish. At the outset you will be introduced to three texts and their authors together with some historical context to help orientate you.
Subsequently you will discuss the main topics, characters, symbols in each book in two 90 minute sessions – each two weeks apart giving you time to read and digest your text. Your teacher will support you to express your reactions to the book and discuss these with your fellow students.
As well as learning to appreciate these works in their native language you will also develop your Spanish language skills helping you express your thoughts and opinions and how to debate them with others.
Vamos is fantastic! The classes are interactive and varied in content so each week it’s really easy to build on your exisiting knowledge…
This was the most incredible weekend with memories which will last a lifetime! All in all a 5/5 rating is a real understatement and a testament to the way in which teaching Spanish should be done!
Vamos do everything they can to support adult learners, appreciating the fact that our busy lives may mean we miss occasional classes so they provide ‘catch up’ opportunities…
