Location: Wanting to learn Spanish where it is practically blue skies with the sun shining everyday, then look no further than Tenerife. Tenerife experiences excellent weather throughout the year due to its location to the equator. Canaries Cultural is a language school in Santa Cruz on the beautiful island of Tenerife. The school is centrally located within the city, just 10 minutes from the Auditorio de Tenerife, which is not just an auditorium, but also considered to be amongst the most interesting Spanish architecture structures. Just down from the auditorium you can find the palmetum, a botanical garden depicting a variety of palm tree species, Parque Marítimo César Manrique, an aquamarine centre with 3 swimming pools, and the Castillo de San Juan Bautista. The central area of Santa Cruz is Plaza de España, a nice 20 minute stroll through the city from the school. The area immediately surrounding the school has all the amenities that you could want for your stay in Santa Cruz. As the climate is attractive all year round it is a great place to explore not just for the cities, but also its landscape. The island itself is volcanic and there are black lava beaches to explore and the unmissable Mount Teide, a volcano with the highest peak in Spain. Mount Teide is found in the middle of the island with the other cities and beaches found around its circumference. The island is easy to explore by car, or for the more adventurous a scooter, as it has a circular road all around almost in the shape of a teardrop. From Santa Cruz the whole lap around the island would take just over 3 hours with no stops, which would be difficult as around every bend there is some beauty to be seen.

Ethos of School: Canaries Cultural language school provides students with a warm and friendly environment, a home from home, with the theory that this will encourage maximum learning potential. The group sizes are all small, with a maximum of 8 students per group, giving each student the space to voice any concerns they may be having and to receive a more personal teaching experience. This is very important as the lessons are taught and communicated in Spanish from the very start in a fully immersive style.

Course structure: Along with the standard Spanish courses, the school also offers a business course to improve upon your business communication skills as well as a cultural course to combine learning the Spanish language with discovering more about its culture and history. The school has other resources in the building including a multimedia room with a television and recorder as well as a computer lab. For after lesson wind down time the school has a terrace and rooftop space for social interaction with other students.
  • The language school Canarias Cultural, Santa Cruz was founded in Tenerife, Spain in 2001.
  • Legal name / parent company: Canarias Cultural, Escuela Internacional de Español S.L.U.
  • Tax registration ID: B38622825
