A picture of Maria Lopez de Vicuña

Having completed a Teaching Degree at the University of the Basque Country in Spain, I worked for 10 years as a Qualified Teacher at Primary Schools in Spain. Since 2012 I worked in several Schools in Manchester and also teaching Spanish for nursery age children all the way up to A-levels as well as individual and groups lessons for adults. Vamos Didsbury! was established in 2015.

My professional career started in the autonomous region of the Basque Country. Schools are bilingual from Early years so a strong emphasis is put on teaching Basque as a second language in addition to Spanish. As a result, I have developed strong transferable language teaching skills.

I hold QTS and a current DBS.
