About

If you’re determined to improve your level of English, you have no excuses with the British Council Bilbao teaching offer. We’ve got alternatives for all students aged 4 and above. They not only improve their command of the English language but also learn how to use it in job interviews and in a wide range of legal and professional environments.

We’ve also got a wide offer of online and on-site classes for teachers. Thanks to these, you can develop your communication skills, improve your professional profile, get access to the best teaching methodologies and certify your level of English to get your dream job.

More than English classes - English Extra

In the Bilbao centre there’s a lot more to do in English apart from your class. During school holidays (Christmas, Easter, June, July and September) we offer our activity courses for young learners where students improve their English through sports, cooking, technology and more.

We want you to practise English in a friendly atmosphere with our cultural talks on a wide range of topics, themed weeks, arts and crafts competitions for students and parents and our Reading Challenge.

Do you want to extend further your learning? You can access the learning resources available in our library and on our online student/portal. In addition, you can make an appointment to have a chat with our teachers about your progress or that of your children.

We also encourage the learning of English language outside our classes. Anyone can attend our free storytelling sessions or our Let’s go to the movies programme, where they can watch films and documentaries and discuss them, thanks to our collaboration with the Guggenheim museum.
