“Daddy, what language is that man speaking?”

When my son Daniel was four years old, my wife and I spent a long weekend in the hotel Tecina on La Gomera, the neighbouring island to Tenerife.In the morning we had been lazing around the pool. It was rather boring for Daniel so he went to watch a man who was diving from one part of the pool to the other. When the man came up gasping, Daniel asked him in German: “Hattest du die Augen auf beim Tauchen?”. The man tried to make it clear that he couldn’t understand him by making some gestures. Then Daniel tried in Spanish: “Tenías los ojos abiertos mientras estabas buceando?”. Apparently, the guest couldn’t speak Spanish either and just gave a shrug. Daniel didn’t hesitate and tried it in English: “Did you have your eyes open in the water?”. Again without success. The bewildered man couldn’t speak English either. Daniel who always used to being understood, shouted to me desperately: “Daddy, what language is that man speaking?”.

I think I should explain something at this point: my sons, Daniel and Nicolás, were growing up with three languages. I’m German, my wife is Spanish and Daniel and Nicolás were attending a British school on Tenerife.

Now its time to introduce myself. My name is Frank Sellingsloh. I’m the director of the FU International Academy Tenerife. Languages, especially Spanish are our passion. We communicate with all of our colleagues and students in different languages. And, of course, we teach Spanish.

Every Friday I get the confirmation of how good we are. We give all our students a questionnaire so they can evaluate the quality of their experience at the Academy. I make a point of reviewing them all. With over 25 points we ask for marks from 1 – 5. If we get a review lower than  “good” or “very good” – we discuss this with the person responsible. We have been doing this since 2004 and we have learned a lot from this feedback from clients.

The result is that almost all of our clients are completely satisfied with the service we offer. 995 out of 1000 would recommend us (statistics from 2016), (The 5 who don’t recommend us, have surely filled in the questionnaires wrong ;-))
