About

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

ENGLISH EXTRA | Much more than English classes

The best way to reinforce English learnt in class is by integrating it naturally into daily leisure activities. When you join the British Council, in addition to attending English classes which will help you achieve your goals, you will be able to enjoy a wide variety of services and activities free of charge, helping to to make the most of your academic and personal development. And of course when you register your child in a British Council centre, the whole family will also be able to enjoy a wide variety of complementary services and activities.

You can discover everything about English Extra here.

We also encourage you to develop your English outside the centre. We offer free storytelling sessions in various libraries, and also the programme 'Let’s go to the movies', where they will view and debate films and documentaries, thanks to our collaboration with the Guggenheim Museum.
