Colega Español Programme

We know, that you want to make the most out of your language course with us. Learning a language must be a comprehensive process that should not just be limited to the classroom, homework and self-study.

We know also that it can be a little uncomfortable to get to a new place without knowing someone and without local knowledge, such as, where to eat the best local food or which places are a must to visit.

We therefore created something special! At SMS Spanish Experience we are proud to offer you a programme, that is unique in the Canary Islands: The “Colega Español Programme”!

What is a “Colega Español”?


A Colega Español is a local person, who is living close to the school and is a native Spanish speaker. It is a normal person, who likes to meet new people and learn new things – just like you!

The Colega will welcome you in Tenerife and will show you around. You can practice your already existing and newly learned language knowledge together and you can emerge with him or her into the local culture. Throughout your language course you can meet in your free time – as much as you both like. When there is not sufficient Colegas Españoles or students, we will organise groups, so that you can have fun together. Many times it is a great opportunity to meet new friends for life and experience very special moments, that wouldn’t have been possible without a local Colega Español on your side.

How does the Colega Español Programme work?


If you wish to have a Colega Español during your stay at SMS Spanish Experience, please contact us in advance when placing your booking. We will then organise the contact and a first meeting between you both during our cultural activity in the language café, which we do every Monday. The Colega Español will show you the area and explain to you interesting facts about the history and daily life. From this point on it is up to you both whether you would like to keep contact.

Of course all Colegas Españoles are people, that have been personally selected by the staff of the school, so that there is no risk for an inconvenient experience.
