- Will there be homework?
Some teachers may give assignments to be completed after class but usually, it’s not the case.
- Will there be a class on national holidays?
If the course is published on a specific week, it means that teaching will take place as usual. Although, it’s not always the case with Spanish courses. If there is one holiday, then students will receive a discount for that week. In the event of two holidays occurring in the same week, we shall ensure that the classes missed during the first holiday are made up. However, please note that the classes missed during the second holiday will be deducted from your invoice.
If there is a public holiday on a Monday the course begins on Tuesday.
- Will I receive a certificate upon completion of the courses?
Every participant receives a certificate of completion at the end of the course.
- Where's the course taking place?
All of our courses are held in our FU International Academy in Puerto de la Cruz, Tenerife.
- What's the daily program at the school?
As our courses are very diverse, there is no particular schedule for all of them. Usually, the theoretical part happens from 09:00 to 13:00 with a coffee break of 15-30 minutes. At 13:00 there is a lunch break for one hour, and after that participants can work on the practical part working on their projects or practicing what they learned. The teacher will be there to answer questions.
For some courses, the schedule will be different. For example, Spanish courses or Spanish for Teachers will have a slightly different schedule. The same happens with Stress Management courses, Motivation, Empathic Communication, etc.
