Learn Spanish in Tenerife

If you are looking to study Spanish under the sun, then you will love Tenerife, known as the ‘Island of Eternal Spring’ thanks to its year-round warm climate! The island has many stunning natural attractions, such as the mountains of El Teide, Anaga and Las Mercedes, the Valley of La Orotava and the magnificent cliffs of Los Gigantes. Perhaps it is this combination of beautiful landscape and fantastic weather that has led to the locals becoming famous for their kindness, warmth and friendliness! This is most evident during one of the island’s many festivals and carnivals, where entire towns come together to eat, drink and be merry! Another fantastic advantage of studying in Tenerife is that the cost of food and wine is lower than the rest of Europe. Tenerife is famed for its gastronomy, with local specialities including prize-winning goats’ cheeses and Mojo Picon (a hot sauce made from oil, garlic, vinegar, salt, and typical dried Canarian red hot peppers), as well as local wines and beers.

Student reviews & feedback

I have no regrets about the seven weeks that I spent at the school in Puerto del la Cruz! The staff were patient and kind and the lessons stimulating and interesting. I met some interesting people and had some great experiences during my time there. Now I have to build on what I've learned.

Thoroughly enjoyed the course- I spent 4 weeks there and made some good friends. All staff and students were very friendly and all ages and nationalities mixed well. The accommodation was in a superb location just 2 minutes from the school and all the town centre attractions. I would love to go back and learn a bit more in the future.

I found the teaching extremely good. The textbooks are good and progressive, and we had also lots of handouts with work-sheets. All the tutors made me work very hard, but that’s partly because I’m a beginner, don’t hear very well, and am a bit slow picking up info.

The school was great, loved my teachers, had fun in classes and learned a lot at the same time. Very personal and I always felt comfortable in the school. My accomodation was central and that was great, only 10 min to school. I liked the neighbourhood and the appartment was nice with big balconys.

Life in Puerto de la Cruz

Puerto de la CruzI am currently living in the village of Puerto de la Cruz in Tenerife. Part of the Canary Islands in the Atlantic, this fascinating village is situated on the north-west side of the island. The village is actually a city because it has its own council, but it has a surface area of only 9 square kilometers. That makes it almost 175 times smaller than London. Even though it is very small, there is a lot to do. At least I think so! Read more...
