About

Get to know our centre

In British Council Barcelona we have been helping our students to achieve their goals for more than 70 years. We collaborate with various institutions and universities. Located in the heart of Sant Gervasi's district, our centre is a cultural landmark and is part of the city's landskape. 

OUR FACILITIES

Our Barcelona Center has the best facilities, bright classrooms with interactive whiteboards so you can study in a dynamic environment and with the most advanced technology.

English Extra | Much more than an English academy

If there's a reason for which we stand out is for allowing our students to expand their learning through free activities and complementary services. 

Activities and workshops like the Face to Face - Library Advisor, where you can have a 20 minuts conversation with our teachers or the Culture Club where you can learn about the topics of British culture, make your English development total. 

Discover the adult English Extra offer here.

RESOURCES CENTRE

Our resource center, located on the ground floor, is an ideal place to study, do homework or access to Internet.

You will be able to access a large selection of tiered material to keep learning out of class.
