About

Come and see our centre

Located in a historical building in the capital, our campus, the headquarters of the British Council in Spain, is a cultural landmark of Madrid. From our main centre we promote the best of British arts, education and science, through events at which our students are the guests of honour.

OUR FACILITIES

Our Madrid campus has top-class facilities. In our light and airy classrooms with interactive whiteboards, you'll study in a dynamic cultural environment with the latest technology. 

English Extra - Much more than English classes

If there is one thing that sets the Madrid Adults centre apart, it is the wide range of study materials and free extra activities on offer for our students.

Activities like Speaking Extra, where you can speak to a teacher in a 20-minute face-to-face session, Exam Practice workshops in which you can practise for the big day, or our Film Club, featuring the best of British cinema, will ensure the well-rounded development of your English.

You can find out all about our English Extra offer for adults here.
