The power of languages

Learning a language keeps you active, opens doors and gives you a new way of seeing the world.

Learning a new language can change your life!

We have the right course for you

We love teaching!

We avoid the classic method of frontal communication and use interactive dynamics and current topics. We teach grammar as a necessary tool for communication and stimulate the students’  interest in the new topics – rather than just giving it to them.

With us you can make new contacts

Our Courses

In addition to the language courses, we also offer occasionally special courses and events. The best way to find out more is by contacting us.

About us

We love teaching! We believe that a good language class should go far beyond teaching grammar, following a manual and filling out worksheets…

How it all started

I was inspired by my grandmother, Mrs. Kunz, to open my own language academy. I grew up in Fuerteventura at a time when it was difficult to get an education, due to the lack of schools. So I spent my youth in a place where it was very easy to go out and have fun or enjoy nature, but where there were hardly any training courses after basic education or high school. At the age of 17, I left the island and I made a promise to myself: if I ever returned to the island, I would do something to make things better. Seeing my classmates leave school to go to work in the tomato fields or to clean hotels left a mark on me. In the 1990s, speaking languages like English or German meant you could find a decent job. On the other hand, there were the foreigners, who didn’t speak Spanish and were isolated from local daily life. My grandmother believed in me and financed my studies, which took me to England, Switzerland, Germany and Madrid. I dedicate my educational project based on creating a bridge between two different worlds to her, to the strong woman in my family who spoke 5 languages fluently and was a pioneer for the women of her time: Dr. Ingeborg Zur-Kunz.

Placement Test

Why is it so important that you do a placement test before you start in a group? Because you will save time and money. The test is oral with a teacher who not only assesses your abilities, but also takes into account your goals, what you expect from the group and what area you need the language course for. The placement test is actually a first individual lesson that introduces you to our method. You get to know the academy and we find the right offer for you.

The test costs 10.00 € and lasts 30 minutes.

No test is necessary for beginners.
