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

We want you to be motivated by and enjoy our 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 young learners

The British Council’s Somosaguas language centre offers a wide range of classes for young learners from 4 to 17. There are courses for all levels, designed so that students can progress from beginner right up to Cambridge Proficiency level. At some levels you can prepare for a Cambridge Exam, such as First Certificate, Advanced and Proficiency.

All classes feature the British Council’s comprehensive learning support. Students can come to class once or twice a week and we have a variety of timetables to fit in with their lives – and yours!.

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 one year

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.

Contact us and we will get back to you soon.
