Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide students with a personalised, dynamic, fun and interactive learning experience in order to help them reach their academic and personal objectives. In each class we strive to make a comfortable learning environment where students can discover the strength of gaining and developing knowledge through imagination and logical thought process.
We achieve our mission by continuously evaluating our courses and by ensuring that we are in line with the curriculum changes set by the government, schools and examination boards.

Teaching Philosophy

We believe that learning takes place both inside and outside the classroom; at Learning First Tenerife we pride ourselves in being able to provide both learning environments.

Inside the classroom, we believe our students learn faster if they are having fun! Our courses provide students with the foundation they need to progress and Our Teachers have the passion and experience to ensure that our students achieve their learning objectives. We combine conventional classroom teaching through books with progressive techniques through music, games, videos, toys and much more. For our language and music courses, students prepare a Christmas and summer production which they thoroughly enjoy performing in front of an audience.

Given our countryside locations, we take pleasure in taking our classroom learning outside whenever possible in order to further enrich our student learning experience through outdoor activities. We also offer an English summer camp where students are entirely immersed in the language. The summer camp is focused on various projects involving nature and outdoor activities. Thus giving our students the opportunity to learn and practice through enjoyable activities whilst simultaneously gaining confidence and fluency in the English language.

Our teaching methodology stimulates students to learn at their own pace and to feel excited about learning. Our philosophy is completely student centric, so our learning activities encourage students to actively participate, feel comfortable and be eager to learn at their own pace.
