Alcobendas Young Learners

We offer high quality English courses for children and teenagers and adults in modern, well equipped classrooms. Our teachers are experienced and well-qualified. As well as general English courses, you can choose Cambridge English exam preparation courses.

We want you to be motivated by and enjoy your classes and we believe that language learning is more effective when: students interact and participate actively in English; students enjoy classes; classes encourage independent learning and student autonomy; students get involved and strive to progress both in the classroom and beyond.

English courses for adults

English courses at our Alcobendas teaching centre cover all abilities, from beginner to advanced. At some levels you can prepare for a Cambridge Exam, such as First Certificate, Advanced and Proficiency. We offer specialised courses in communications skills and business English as well.

All classes feature the British Council’s comprehensive learning support. Our varied timetables mean you can choose to come to class for the number of hours and days that best suits you.

Summer courses

We have a wide range of courses during the summer months for children and teenagers aged 10 to 18. In July, students aged 14 to 18 can take one of our 100 hour courses, a great opportunity to complete a full level in one month.

We also offer 25 hour skills courses in September for 10 to 17 year olds.

Summer courses for young learners

Which course is right for you?

To make sure your course is at the right level for you, you’ll need to take a ‘level test’, which assesses your spoken and written English. The test takes an hour at most. You have to do the test if:

  • you’ve not studied with us before or
  • you haven’t done any  study for at least six months

If you have passed the Cambridge First (FCE), Advanced (CAE) or Proficiency (CPE) in the last year, you don't need to take the level test, but please bring your certificate when you come to register.

Madrid Alcobendas
