Spanish School Director Daphne

Hi, my name is Daphne.

I’m the coordinator of the Language and Methodology course for non-native teachers of Spanish and I’m passionate about delivering it.

Teaching this course not only allows me to share with teachers and future teachers from all over the world my experience of more than 25 years, but it also gives me the opportunity to learn from their own exposure to the Spanish language.

Our Spanish for Teachers course combines looking at innovative foreign language teaching approaches and revising some of the more challenging aspects of the grammar. We aim to enhance your professional development in a European environment, in the relaxed atmosphere of our island, Tenerife.

Language and Methodology

We always follow our special FUIA teaching system.

Teachers in Spanish class

The course aims to develop the practical aspects of interactive and communicative teaching of the language, paying particular attention to the use of different materials and resources (audio-visual, Internet, games, written materials, etc.), for different types of lessons.

At the same time, the most common problems arising in the ELE classroom will be analysed, and possible solutions put forward.

The course is both theoretical and practical and you as a participant will be able not only to update your knowledge but also to reflect on your own educational experiences, exchange ideas with other participants and perfect your level of Spanish.

Spanish teacher course review

“I liked the course very much because I had an opportunity to speak Spanish and talk about how I teach Spanish. I could improve my teaching methods and techniques while I was observing classes. I know more how to teach Spanish without using my mother tongue.”

– Dorotha (Poland)

Spanish teacher course review

“I had a really great experience in the teacher course for Spanish as a foreign language. All teachers at the FU were very friendly and open and I felt very welcome. Especially, I will keep in mind Sandra’s presentation method of the Spanish language. Amazing! It motivated me to talk even more Spanish in my own Spanish courses, also in lower level courses. All in all it was a very helpful and great course and I totally recommend it to everybody.”

– Randi (Denmark)

Spanish teacher course review

“The teacher course Spanish as a foreign language fulfilled all I expected and more. I came back with plenty of new ideas how to create my own Spanish courses. The teachers of the FU International Academy are very professional and it was an experience that I would like to repeat in the future.”

– Inge (Denmark)
