Madrid Young Learners has a long history of teaching English in Madrid, and over 100,000 students have studied with us. Our teachers are experienced, professional and well-qualified, and our centre has the highest reputation in the English language teaching sector.

We offer high quality English courses for learners aged between 2 and 17 years in modern, well-equipped classrooms. As well as our programme of general English courses, you can choose from special Cambridge English exam preparation courses, and a variety of skills courses.

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

To support your learning inside and outside the classroom, we offer:

  • free membership of our library for all students, offering a wide range of learning resources, including books, DVDs and resources for independent learning 
  • reading and writing circles as part of our library support service
  • an online student/parent portal which offers a wide variety of learning resources and teaching centre news, and access to children's academic reports
  • consultations with teachers for parents of young learners.
