About

An efficient and convenient way of learning English: that’s what we offer at our centre in San Vicente de Paúl school. Thanks to our collaboration with the centre, students from the area of Barakaldo can study and prepare their Cambridge English exams.

More than just English classes

San Vicente de Paúl School students have the same advantages as those who are studying at the Bilbao centre. Through our online student/portal, they can access self-study learning resources as well as the mid-year and final student reports. 

Those students studying for the Cambridge ESOL exams can sign up in our free mocks for speaking exams, where they learn a lot of useful tips they can apply in their exams. 

Our students from Barakaldo can take part in the programme of free activities the Bilbao centre organises for their students (arts and crafts workshops, art and reading competitions, etc.) and for people from Bilbao (Let’s go to the movies, storytelling sessions in local libraries and civic centres, etc.)
