FU International Academy provides students with a truly one-of-a-kind Spanish education experience enriched by the scenic beauty of its surroundings. Located in Puerto de la Cruz, a serene harbor town on the sunny shores of Tenerife, the school perfectly embodies the essence of “the island of eternal spring.” 

As you enter the building, you are greeted by bright, air-conditioned classrooms, warm smiles, and expansive windows flooding the space with natural light. The picturesque setting, of course, is only one aspect of the academy’s much more extensive offerings — the Instituto Cervantes accreditation backed by over two decades of teaching experience, a team of highly qualified, native-speaking teachers and innovative teaching methodologies cement its place among the best institutions in the country. 

Equally intriguing is how students’ study experience extends beyond the classroom. During breaks, you can savor a cup of authentic Canarian coffee on the sunlit terrace of the school’s cafeteria as you take in the views of Volcano Teide and the lush greenery. In the afternoon, you can enjoy a variety of outdoor activities: go shopping in Santa Cruz, take a hike up into Teide National Park, visit Loro Parque, or explore the sandy beaches just a 20-minute walk away.

All year round, students from across the globe create lasting memories as they immerse themselves in stress-free studies, surrounded by unique volcanic landscapes, lively festivities, and delectable local cuisine.

Also the school is well-located (Cafe, bus station and super market are nearby). The lessons really brought me forward - especially regarding my communication skills. Perfect.

I joined Bildungsurlaub program and learned Spanish with FU. I really love the atmosphere they created for the students. I feel the procedure of getting shared apartment key can be improved. In general, I’m very happy with all the teachers and classmates. Amazing experience I collected here with FU and amazing people I’ve met in my life. 🥰 I joined Bildungsurlaub program and learned Spanish with FU.
