Meet Our Team

CEO Frank



  • Nationality: German

  • Quote: “I have a new idea!”

My name is Frank Sellingsloh. I’ve been the director of the FU International Academy Tenerife since 2004.

When I started back then I had a small team of only 3 permanent employees.

Now, the FU International Academy is the largest Spanish language school in the Canary Islands. Over the years we have taught thousands of students from all over the world.

Our team has grown to more than 20 but we are still small enough to call ourselves a family.

Let me present to you our lovely FUIA team of today!
