Learn Spanish in the morning…


In 20 lessons (1 lesson = 45 min.) per week, you will broaden your vocabulary and grammar knowledge in a fast and convenient way. There will be plenty of time for conversation in the group which will enable you to cope with real-life situations and find your way around.


If you would like to learn even more intensely, you can even do 30 lessons per week: 20 lessons + 10 for group conversation. The lessons include a variety of communication activities that focus on the practicalities of everyday life.

Both course types are available for all levels. Before starting your course, we’ll ask you to take a level test in order to match you with students of the same Spanish knowledge.

During all our classes we follow our special FUIA teaching system, making sure that every student reaches a new level at the end of every week.

Participant of Spanish & Surf

“For me, this week in Tenerife was almost too good to be true. At the Academy, they paid attention to my individual needs concerning the language. My teacher, Rosemary, put all her heart and soul into her work, and there was always somebody I could talk to. Then there was the surfing with the charming boys of Marea Surf School. Guys, you are etched in my memory. Thank you all for a great time!”
