We had a great time during our stay of 6 weeks in Tenerife at FU International Academy. We enjoyed the course, the salsa lessons, the beach, the sun and the night life.
I had a very good time over here. I´ve learned a lot, especially because of the small classes. My teacher was very kind, patient and creative. I liked her classes a lot. I can recommend staying at a host family. In that way you learn so much more about the language and about Tenerife and its tradition.

The classes are well structured. The teachers speak slowly and clearly and when it is necessary they communicate with hands and feet – A big compliment to our teacher, she makes a really good job! The accomodation was comfortable and was „language seperated“, which means that in my flat there were no other Germans so I was not able to speak German. This is really a benefit, when you want to learn a language. Every afternoon the FU International Academy offers different free time activities, which are included in the price you pay for your language course. My resume is that I have learned a lot here, met some interesting and nice people and stayed on a fantastic island, which I really do not want to leave.
I´ve chosen Tenerife, the FU International Academy, to take a course of Spanish and here in Puerto de la Cruz. I liked the lessons. There weren´t many students in one course and therefore it was a direct, constant and educational contact between the teacher and the students. I liked above all speaking about literature and cultural subjects. The teacher has a very good cultural knowledge level and this was important to exchange opinions and experiences. The accommodation was comfortable and clean. In Puerto I liked the “Lago Martianez”, a huge swimming pool landscape with sea water and the different local fiestas.

Altogether I spent six weeks at the FU learning Spanish and I would have loved to stay much longer, because I had a great time there. My teacher was really nice and caring. She always fulfilled our needs and the lessons were very interesting, so I could really improve my Spanish. The time here went by very fast because I met lots of very nice people and we had so much fun. I will especially remember our “Fiestas” in “El Cubano” for a very long time.
My experience here in FU language school has been great. The teachers here are great and I learned a lot more in Spanish than I thought I would. This island has many different and exciting things you can do for fun when you are not at school. Overall my stay here has been more fun, exciting and instructive than I had ever expected 🙂
Martina and Asya (Bulgaria)
The course was very nice. All the people were very helpful and we had a really wonderful time. We hope to come here again. Thank you very much.

The lessons have been much better than I had expected. The teacher listened to our suggestions and preferences and prepared the classes according. She corrects us when speaking but not so much that we lost track of what we were saying and also she has given us a lot of written material things that we can continue working with at home. Thank you!

Every at FU International Academy is of the highest quality – the teachers, staff and environment. The FU Café has the best coffee and is a great place to enjoy the sun, make new friends and practice Spanish.
Katica, Iris uand Mateja (Slovenia)
We liked the course very much. Lessons were very good because the teacher spoke all the time in spanish and we were forced to understand her. Unfortunately there was too little time, but enough to see that you are all very kind, open and ready to help. We enjoyed our time here.
Marjorie and Anabelle (Belgium)
The classroom is well-lit, beautiful and big and we have a lot of space to learn in an excellent atmosphere – it’s important to feel relaxed. The material and book are well choosen and they helped us to learn with ease. The teacher was very nice, she explained all the points very clearly .
Sarah Schubert (Germany)
I spent 2 months at the FU Academy and I have good memories of a truly great experience. I enjoyed all the activities (like surfing, Salsa, Beach-Volleyball…), the trips to the most exciting places in Tenerife and of course the whole FU Team create a lovely learning atmosphere.
The highlights of my trip were the “muchas fiestas” in Puerto de la Cruz and the incredible Tapas Restaurants.
Hilmi Altay and Mihrican Ünlü (Turkey)
The course was very good and the teacher was really excellent especially because her explanations were very clear. Our lessons were funny. The service of the administration team was good and all the people are very kind. We are glad to start learning Spanish with you.
Tatiana Melnik (Russia)
I have been to several different schools in Spain and I wasn’t happy with them but I like this school a lot. I didn’t have any problems, everything was well organised: the accommodation, the leisure activities and of course the classes. Our teacher was very nice and kind; she explained everything very clearly and patiently, and I have learnt a lot. I would recommend FU International Academy to my friends!
Eirin Cecilie Skogseth and Sigrid Elena Hauge (Norway)
We have been here in Puerto de la Cruz for 2 weeks and it was so cool! We left the cold dark winter in Norway and found the sun, the warmth and a lot of nice people.We could practise paragliding, surfing, salsa dance and a lot of other activities. There is so much to do and it has been great fun, even the lesson time! Thank you for this great experience and see you soon!
Federica Forlani (Italy)
I had the great luck to spent 6 month at the FU International Academy, because I was preparing for a big language test. My time here was ingenious; I haven’t only learned the language but also the culture and lot of great people.
My teacher, who accompanied me during all the time of my stay, was very friendly and helpful. Due to her my Spanish language skills improved a lot. We laughed plenty of times in class and had a good time together. Because of the language all the students of different countries melt together and you could learn more about other cultures of the world as well.
Willingly I will come back to the FU International Academy, who guided me cordially through my time at Tenerife and I look forward to have my next tasty “cortado” in the cafeteria.
Allessandra Serreri (Italy)
The course of 60 hours, which I attended at FU International Academy has helped me to correct some errors which Italian students commonly make in the Spanish language. The lessons have been developed with2 aims; in the first 2 weeks mainly the grammar was treated, in the last week, mostly verb forms and everyday conversation.
Dorel and Kokolin Jepure (Rumania)
We like the hospitality and kindness of the team. Learning the language in such beautiful place is a pleasure. Also learning a new language in the country, where everybody speaks that language, is easier than at home. The classes were good, as was the method of teaching Spanish. The teacher was friendly and professional.
My experience in these four weeks in the school is unforgettable. The accommodation is very nice, it is a good idea to put together students from different countries. The school is very well organised, and the teachers are very friendly, they are great fun and I have learned a lot in our class. The atmosphere is very pleasant one for learning. Overall, the experience has been wonderful because I have met new people and got to know other cultures.
Sonja Felsmann (Germany)
I really enjoyed my time at the FU Academy. The shared apartment I lived in was large, bright and well furnished. The lessons were always great because all the teachers are friendly and highly motivated, and the groups are quite small.
Apart from that, FU organises a wide range of leisure activities that are fun and varied. Puerto de la Cruz also offers a lot of opportunities to go out in the evenings so that you can practise what you learnt in school that day. All in all I spend an awesome time with great people!
Romaine Bayard (Switzerland)
I learned so much during my stay in the school. I needed to improve my Spanish for my Internship on Tenerife and the course helped me so much. There weren’t too many pupils in the class, the teacher was able attend to our wishes and requirements. FU International Academy looked after me very well.
Emilie Moille (France)
I came to study in this language school because a friend of my parents knew about it. I think the school is very good and I have learnt a lot. I studied in a small group and the teachers were very good. The classroom was large and bright and the chosen books suited my needs and helped me a lot.
Jean Marc Pfau (France)
Everybody who intents to learn Spanish I would recomend to come here to this school where you can study and enjoy a pleasant ambience in form of a vacation at the same time.
Horst Pappe (Germany)
I am 75 years young! From time to time I come to live in Tenerife. I wanted to learn the basics in Spanish. Then, I would be able to communicate outside the tourist areas as well as in market place.
In the 2 weeks I have been at the language Academy (30 hours, individual lesson) I improved my Spanish skills a lot.
It was a lot of fun to work with my teacher, Daphne.
M. Corcoran (Poland)
I am satisfied with the course at this school. I think that the professors are well prepared and the classes were interesting.
