EOI LA OROTAVA

The Official School of Languages of La Orotava (EOI La Orotava) is a state-maintained language school for adults and young adults. The school is located in a town called La Orotava in the north of Tenerife, in the Canary Islands Spain. The EOI La Orotava offers quality English, French and German courses, personalising lessons and contents to meet learners’ needs and preferences while supporting them in achieving their goals.

At the EOI La Orotava the focus is placed on humanisation, personalisation, inclusiveness, as well as teachers’ and students’ wellbeing. Continuous professional development also plays a crucial role at the school to be able to meet the needs and demands of students and make learning memorable. The school decided to take part in this project because we firmly believe in the internationalisation of education, in cooperation and, above all, the value of Humanistic Language Teaching.
