Location: FU International Academy opens their doors to international students from two great locations: Puerto de la Cruz (North Tenerife) or in Costa Adeje (South Tenerife).

Accreditation: Here you can find schools that are accredited by the Cervantes Institute in Madrid who inspect the schools and certify the quality of the teaching.

Course structure: The courses at the school are designed according to The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) and serves as a platform to ease foreign students into the learning process of foreign languages across Europe. All students are required to take a comprehensive placement test that will determine their exact level of Spanish - this makes it easier for Course Consultants to place you within the correct course. Courses at FU International Academy starts every Monday for 52 weeks of the year and welcomes students from across the globe to enjoy learning the Spanish language in a relaxed setting, filled with exciting leisure activities.

Social calendar: Find your feet while learning the Salsa or catch a few waves down by the beach. Both locations are well-known for offering more than its fair share of parties, festivals and weekend excursions, so this is definitely an option for students who wish to maintain a lively social calendar.

Additional information: FU International assists students in obtaining a valid visa to study in Spain and for an extra fee, offers airport transfer, while students can expect to find a wide variety of homestays, shared apartments and hotel apartments available within central town limits.

What students liked about FU International Academy, Tenerife
I can highly recommend FU International. I booked for two weeks but stayed an extra week because I was making good progress with the excellent teacher Laura. Classes are small, my first was seven students and the next two four. The subject matter was at the appropriate level for me but I noticed the college was flexible and would move students up mid week. The lessons are well planned with a test at the end of the week to identify any weak areas. The teachers encourage students to speak using a range of games and scenarios. Above all, for me aged 60+, the mix of ages because of the professional qualifications it offers means older students do not feel out of place.

Other comments: I really liked the free breakfast every Monday on the lovely - usually sunny - terrace because it was a chance to socialise and meet other students on the first day. Plus the food is excellent!
The cafe/social atmosphere, friendliness of staff & students. Teaching staff made the course enjoyable and encouraged verbal discussions during class which was great for improving confidence in speaking the language.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: I highly recommend the FU International Academy in Puerto de la Cruz due to: friendly atmosphere, undertaking educational activities in accordance with the expectations and possibilities of students, helping students in school and in various extracurricular matters related to the stay in Tenerife. FU International Academy in Puerto de la Cruz is a nice proposition to combine learning Spanish with a nice time on Tenerife with leisure, and the opportunity to learn about the local culture.
Other comments: I would like to thank you for a very pleasant 2 weeks of learning Spanish at FU International Academy.
The school has excellent teachers, and the administration is always eager to help. I learned a lot, it was fun. I highly recommend it, muchas gracias.
