FU International Academy Tenerife

The Perfect Place for Learning Spanish

We’re very lucky to offer Spanish courses in such a beautiful location! Our school sits in Puerto de La Cruz, a beautiful harbour town in the north of Tenerife. From our sunny terrace you have incredible views of Mount Teide and the lush green mountains in the centre of the island.

Having a quiet and well-equipped learning environment is one of our key priorities. Your learning comes first, which is why all our classrooms are fitted with modern teaching equipment and our school is based in a quiet area of town.

We know that you want a great overall experience while you study with us, which is why we have our in-house FU Cafe for your breaks and we’re just a short walk from the beach! We want to help you make the most of your adventure in Tenerife, so we even offer extra-curricular activities like surfing, salsa and beach volleyball to name a few.

Our’s is definitely a language course you’ll never forget!

What Makes Us Different from Other Spanish Schools?

What’s so Great About the Canary Islands?

Orotava Valley

Well to start with Tenerife is one of the most beautiful islands in the world and the biggest (and we think best!) of the Canary Islands. It’s known as “The island of eternal spring”. It is located off the west coast of Africa. With an average annual temperature of 23 degrees celsius, it rarely gets colder than 18ºC and almost never warmer than 30ºC.

This means when it gets cold during European winters we still have plenty of sunny beach days! We all know the best motivation for learning Spanish is spending time in a Spanish speaking country, so why not do exactly that but somewhere with better weather than mainland Spain?

Puerto de la Cruz is also unique. It’s a town with all the amenities you might need, but with the background of lush green mountains and sea views, you always feel close to nature.

We have a vibrant community, but with less tourists than the South, giving you the opportunity to experience the real Canary Islands. Puerto is still a fishing harbour, which means amazing fish restaurants and a friendly local community. Perfect for practicing your Spanish after class!

Location & Contact

We’re located right next to Africa, but we still belong to Spain.

We are situated in the district of La Paz (peace in English) which is a calm and peaceful area and therefore the perfect place for learning a foreign language.

However, we’re well connected, so after your day of concentration you can easily find your way to a sunny beach, tasty restaurant or the local nightclubs (including our favourite roof terrace bar!). Everything you might need during your stay is within reach of our language school:

  • 10 min. walk to Playa Martiánez
  • 15 min. walk to the city centre
  • 10 min. bus ride to Playa Jardin
  • 15 min. bus ride to Loro Parque
  • 2 min. walk to the botanical garden
  • supermarket downstairs
  • in-house café

We Are a Small, Big Spanish Language School

On the one hand, we are small enough to call ourselves a family. Of course our students change every week, but our teachers, staff, and cafe members stay the same, meaning you can create lasting friendships and become a part of the FUIA family.

We’re also small enough that we can invite all of our students to a welcome breakfast on our sunny terrace every week. Which means you get the chance to talk to other students and visitors to our school. Plus, with all the extracurricular activities on offer, it’s easy to make friends.

When it comes to classes we know smaller is also better. So there are rarely more than 6 students in one class at the same time and never more than 10.

But make no mistake we are big enough to offer every student the right class corresponding to the exact language level that they require. We’re also big enough to have connections all around the island to help you get the most out of your language experience.

Join our FUIA family!
