Your Teacher

¡Hola! My name is Elena and I come from Seville, the capital of Andalusia, in the south of Spain.

I am a qualified teacher with a Certificate in teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language from International House and I also have a degree in Dramatic Arts and studies in English Literature and Linguistics.

I love studying languages and learning new aspects of different cultures, and I hope I can help you in getting to know those of Spain. I always try to create a comfortable and creative atmosphere in class, where everyone feels confident and is eager to participate.

I am so glad to become a member of the ¡Vamos! team and I hope you will enjoy my lessons as much as I will.

About Us

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.

More about this course

In this course we learn about Hispanic culture through the study of cinema.

Each lesson is dedicated to an Hispanic film. Students have a guide of questions to consider (films are first viewed at home) and then in class we watch a clip and discuss and debate topics shown.

Each week of your course we give you the title of one of the best films of the Hispanic world for you to watch on Netflix, Prime Video or other platforms.

  • Relatos Salvajes (Argentina, 2014). This film is made of six episodes between comedy, thriller and violence. Its characters will be pushed into the abyss and the undeniable pleasure of losing control, crossing the thin line that separates civilization from barbarity.
  • The Endless Trench (Spain, 2019). 1936. A country taken by the fascism. A husband marked for the killing. A wife determined to do anything to save him. An endless incarceration in his own home.
  • A Fantastic Woman (Chile, 2017). Winner of the Oscar to the Best Foreign Language Film, this film follows the story of Marina, a transgender woman who works as a waitress and moonlights as a nightclub singer, is bowled over by the death of her older boyfriend.
  • Amores Perros (Mexico, 1999). One of the first films by academy award winner Alejandro González Iñárritu (The Revenant, Birdman). The film is constructed as a triptych: it contains three distinct stories connected by a car accident in Mexico City. The stories centre on a teenager in the slums who gets involved in dogfighting; a model who seriously injures her leg; and a mysterious hitman.
  • Talk to her (Spain, 2002). Written and directed by Pedro Almodóvar, the film follows two men who form an unlikely friendship as they care for two women who are both in comas.
