WE LOVE TO HEAR FROM OUR STUDENTS
I just came back from the conversational 1-week course that Vamos offers in Valencia. It was a fantastic experience, Amaya and Sarah are great teachers who really encourage you to speak as much as possible. It was a great mix of different conversation topics and games in class as well as activities in the afternoon or evening in the city – all well planned out, fun to attend, and great opportunities to speak, speak, speak. I learned a lot during this week, and will definitely come back to improve my Spanish further.

I am a regular student at Vamos (beginner, A1) and recently attended the week long conversation course in the Vamos Valencia. It was an absolutely fantastic experience! Being a beginner, I had very little confidence in my ability to speak but I was seeing myself clearly improve throughout the course. The course was well structured, with classes in the morning and activities planned in the afternoon/evenings. I also got to meet some very cool new people in my class! The instructors – Amaya and Sarah – were both fantastic – very patient and knowledgeable. They often took the time to explain concepts even if it wasn’t strictly part of the course material.

I recently attended a 5 day conversation course in Valencia which was amazing. It was the best possible way to put into practice, all the grammar learnt, in a friendly environment. The course is 4 hours a day which sped by because the amazing teacher Amaya, made it fun and interesting. The school is located in a central location and they arranged numerous social activities so boredom was never an option. I definitely left the course , a better linguist, and will certainly return.

I began my Spanish language adventure with Vamos back in February 2017 and I’ve increasingly enjoyed my time with the school. In short, the school boasts a fun and engaging environment in which to learn the language. I also recently went on the 1-week B1 conversation class with Vamos in Valencia, which surpassed my already high expectations. The school in Valencia is headed up by Amaya Alonso (who was my teacher in London) who, along with Sarah Martinez’s help, has already created a great atmosphere in which to learn. The course was intense (4 hours a day), however Amaya’s energy and passion for teaching always ensured a great class. Outside of the school, the teachers ensure you see the best of Valencia and I look forward to taking another course with them!

I loved it! Jordi used many things to keep the class flowing-we played taboo and some Q&A games about films and famous people. We used Lyrics Training (which I will be using at home). 10 hours was a good amount of time in the classroom and I really enjoyed my walking tour with Gloria- she was a lot of fun. I am definitely coming for another weekend in Valencia with Vamos soon!

I am completing level 4 with Vamos in London this week. I’ve spent three days at the school in Valencia in July, which was a really great catch up on my A1. Besides the A1 class, there was also a class of B1 students. We shared some learning activities such as a city game and a visit to the mercado together, but most of the classroom time was separated and adjusted to the each level. The teachers give us a decent introduction to the city and a list of fantastic restaurants, upcoming neighbourhoods and great bars to fill our spare time with. Had a great weekend, and definitely planning on going back.

My sister and I had the B2 level 5-day course and we loved it! Special thanks to our teacher Costanza she was very kind and helpful, she modified the classes and activities according to our preferences and what we wanted to focus more on (conjugation, grammar…). The evening activities were also great, got to know caring locals (Betina and Jordi) and got to practice our spoken Spanish while doing typical Valencian activities with them (Flamenco show, tapas tour…) ! And Valencia is an amazing city to be in. Muchas gracias!!

I’ve completed three levels now with Vamos and went on a one week immersive course in Valencia which was great. I had the chance to communicate with the locals and really push myself to speak to them whilst there. I’ve now started level 4 and continue the classes at Canary Wharf which is a convenient location to go after work.
