Spanish is a great language; we all know how important it is in the business and cultural worlds. Spanish is a language that connects so many different cultures and ways of thinking that learning Spanish is not only learning a language, it is also about learning about oneself: personally, intellectually and emotionally. At don Quijote Tenerife we are aware of this and as such, we take care of all the aspects of your learning experience.

Working at don Quijote has offered me the unique opportunity of not only teaching my native language and culture, but also learning from the students that visit us from so many different places each year. It’s a pleasure teaching a language that opens up so many possibilities for someone to communicate and enrich themselves through travel and cultural exchanges all over the world. Each day, in my profession, is an adventure that we that shouldn’t be missed. I look forward to seeing you here at don Quijote Tenerife.

One of the things that I like most about my job as a Spanish teacher is the ability I have to introduce students to a new culture. My experience as a teacher in Tenerife has shown me that if your objective is to communicate and immerse yourself in the Spanish speaking world, than coming here is an excellent choice since the Canary Islands have acted as a bridge between Spain and America. The linguistic peculiarities of the way we speak which include a smooth and relaxed pronunciation as well as the variety of traditions and customs here help make learning fun. You will also find that our friendly attitude and favorable climate will make your experience in Tenerife unforgettable. They say that Tenerife is a piece of paradise…why don’t you give it a try?

Film, literature, music, theater… Right now, culturally, Spanish is going through a period of cultural activity without limits. Studying a language like ours will undoubtedly open doors for you that otherwise would remain shut. Not only am I talking about doors that open professionally but also doors that pass into a world that lets us appreciate the cultural and artistic differences that enrich our life through language. I invite you to fall in love with Spanish as I have fallen in love with teaching the language. Come and join us if you want to open up to the world with all its richness that only language can offer.

    The teachers are very good and qualified. The school has a good teaching method for all levels. When I started at the school I had never spoken Spanish and after just three weeks I was able to maintain a conversation in Spanish about various topics.
