About

Get to know our centre

In British Council Barcelona we have begun an exciting partnership with Vedruna Gràcia' School where we are offering our young learner English courses to the general public.

These courses are for students from 3 to 17 years old. They are tailored to the specific needs of each stage of educational development and designed to foster learners’ interest in English in a dynamic and fun learning environment.

OUR FACILITIES

The fantastic facilities at Vedruna Gracia' school include spacious classrooms with lots of light, equipped with all the necessary technology for our classes. The centre also has a large recreational area.

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.

With our tutoring program and periodic meetings you will be able to follow your child's learning progress. You will also have access to our library located in our Amigó 83 centre.

Besides the classes with which your children will improve their English, the whole family will be able to enjoy a wide variety of complementary services in our Amigó 83 centre. Check our events page for more details.
