"¡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!"
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 during which you 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 like Andi´s teaching methods. I’m happy with the overall course. Definitely I am going to continue for education on Level 3.
The program was good and gave a chance to learn very important basic things. I would prefer less of games and quizzes and more of intense grammar topics, but maybe it is how it should be for the first level. I would also like more listening activities.
Very useful, lots of practice with grammar as well as speaking. The teaching was very good and the atmosphere in the class was very upbeat and welcoming.
A fantastic learning experience – the teachers really make the effort to provide fun and stimulating lessons. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Vamos as a place to learn Spanish…
The activities were very fun and interactive. A great way to speak Spanish and learn vocabulary and a great week with a great bunch of people.
Very good, the class moved at a good speed with a good range of activities to practice different skills. Better than similar classes I’ve done in the past.
Alberto has been really good, I have learnt a lot and he is a great teacher. He takes his time and makes sure everyone feels comfortable.
I continue to love my Spanish lessons! Level 4 was a big shift in difficulty but in a good way and I feel that my Spanish has improved significantly. Can’t wait for Level 5! Please can we have Clara as our teacher again 🙂
Very good teaching: fun and challenging. There is always a great atmosphere and we have a lot of fun. I always have a sense of satisfaction after the lesson.
