LEARN SPANISH IN TENERIFE


The largest city, Santa Cruz, is the capital of the island and seat of the cabildo insular (island government); it is also the capital of the province of Santa Cruz de Tenerife and officially co-capital of the autonomous community of the Canary Islands together with Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, although clearly behind this one in terms of population, industry, tourism or gross domestic produce.



About the city

Population: 838,877.
Autonomous Community: Canary Islands (Islas Canarias)

Tourism is concentrated more in the south of the island, which is hotter and drier and especially around Playa de las Americas, and Los Cristianos. More recently coastal development has grown northwards from Playa de las Americas and now encompasses the former small enclave of La Caleta. Tenerife is a favoured destination for scuba divers, with numerous dive operations of all qualities and nationalities. The waters round the island are diveable throughout the year, with the temperature varying between 18 degrees in January to around 25-26 degrees in August.

Tenerife also has a reputation for the 'booze scene', with Playa de las Americas and Los Christianos providing ample locations for those that enjoy 24 hour clubbing & drinking. The drinks available are the same as the rest of Europe (predominantly British) with prices being slightly less than those 'back home'. The island of Tenerife is served by two airports, the Los Rodeos or Tenerife Norte and the Reina Sofia Airport or Tenerife Sur. As it is an island the only other way to arrive on Tenerife is by ferry. Public transport on the island is provided by a network of buses (Guaguas) and run by T.I.T.S.A. who operate a fleet of modern, air-conditioned buses which, generally, run on time. Drivers are helpful and the mix of tourists and 'locals' (especially in the resort areas) makes for an interesting ride, not to mention it being one of the best ways to actually see the island.

If you travel to Tenerife, you'll find all kinds of foods. One that deserves special attention is the Gofio. Gofio is a typical breakfast food rich in Vitamins, especially in vitamin A. Check out Vitamin A foods is you want know more detailed information about these element.

In addition, you have the option of attending an extra and completely free daily class covering different topics of cultural interest. We know that for a language course to be successful, it is not enough to offer excellent teaching. Other factors, such as socio-cultural aspects, also play an important part in its success.

Spanish and Scuba Diving course (Padi Beginner/Advanced)

Combine the Spanish course with the Scuba Diving course during your stay in Tenerife. The diving course consists of 2 weeks of half-day lessons.
Tenerife has a wide variety of dive sites, all dives are relatively close to shore and most are only within a fifteen minute boat ride. There are three courses on offer: PADI Beginner, PADI Advanced and Dive Master Program.
The course includes: full insurance, all equipment, and transport from the school to the dive. The total duration of the sea immersions (journey to the dive site + underwater dive) is between 4 and 6 hours but it depends on the size of the group and the dive site, as some take longer to reach by boat than others. The schedule is flexible because the immersion sessions depend on meteorological or sea conditions at the time of the dive, as well as your Spanish lessons. The scuba monitors will accompany you on every journey and dive.

Classes: 20 + 5 Spanish lessons + 5 dive sessions
