Spanish School in Tenerife: Learn Spanish in Tenerife


Discover Tenerife

Studying Spanish in Tenerife is taking a step out of the conventional and into the extraordinary. Be transported to a land before time with Tenerife’s rugged volcanic landscapes, its formidable mountains and primordial jungles, its wildly diverse flora and spectacular black sand beaches. Off the coast of West Africa, Tenerife is the Canary Islands’ largest isle and will amaze you with its superlatives: be awe-struck in the presence of Mount Teide, one of the largest volcanoes on earth; get swept away in the pure joy and vibrant color of the world-famous Carnival; live the life you’ve always dreamed of with Tenerife’s perfect year-round climate. Dare to discover the Spanish language and culture in an environment that will inspire you from your head to your toes.

Our school

Enjoy truly personalized learning and feel like part of one big family at our prestigious don Quijote school in Tenerife. The school consists of 7 fully equipped classrooms, teachers’ lounge, student common area with library and central patio – a lovely, open-air courtyard where students and teachers alike come together to chat and rest between classes. Located within the Edifico Bélgica, a traditional Canary Island-style building, our school is guaranteed to inspire you to immerse yourself in Spanish.

What we love about Tenerife

We love that Tenerife defies the typical Spanish clichés: it’s not the Spain you’ve seen in the movies. Its subtropical climate, lush greens, dark blues and volcanic black landscapes contrast sharply with the conventional image of Spain with its dusty yellows, pale greens and long stretches of olive groves. The distinctive sing-song accents and curious local vernacular of Canarians will fascinate you and immerse you in a Spanish seldom found in textbooks. Challenge all your preconceived notions of what Spain looks, sounds and feels like. Learn Spanish in a beautiful, unique environment that will truly thrill all the senses.

What our students are saying about us

Check out this students opinion Caroline Lehnberg

"I first heard about don Quijote from a friend. I decided to study in Tenerife and I had the best time of my life! I met friends for life and people from all over the world. The school is great with a cosy environment and the best teachers I ever had. When I got home from Tenerife after three months I missed it so much I decided to go back for six more weeks. If you have doubts, don’t think twice, just do it!"
