What our students said about Tenerife

Rating: 5/5

5.0

Tenerife is versatile and with the Teide you have almost all climatic zones on the island. Santa Cruz has a great big city character and you can find everything you can expect. The rural areas above the coast are relatively densely built up. A lot of industry and energy systems can be found on the south coast. In this respect, Puerto de la Cruz is the ideal place.

Tenerife has a lot more to offer than beaches but if you want sun in winter it’s best to go to the south of the island as Puerto de la Cruz has a lot of clouds and rain. You can catch a local bus to the southern resorts at weekends for GBP 10 return.

I have visited the island many times, and stayed in several locations, but the Northern part is my favourite. I might move here when I retire.

I lived in Puerto de la Cruz and the rating refers to this city. I was only "sightseeing" in Santa Cruz and La Laguna.

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.
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!

In principle, I liked everything. The teachers were extremely friendly and courteous and nothing was missing - despite the Corona times, I don't have the feeling that I missed anything.
I have no comparison to other schools - but I was/am fully satisfied.

The school is located in a shopping center, you have many options, shopping in the supermarket, stopping off at cafes/restaurants, there are also other shops, doctors' offices, etc. The botanical garden is right across the street, the quarter itself is quiet. The lessons are a bit too ambitious and therefore create a lot of stress. However, individual teachers are very committed.
Maybe set goals that are not that ambitious, which is less stressful for students and teachers.
