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.

LENDING SERVICE (Temporarily closed)

In addition, in our centre we have a well-stocked and very attractive library from where you can borrow from a range of materials in order to continue learning in the way that best suits you. You'll have access to materials divided by level in order to maximise your progress. 


Come and visit our centre! While you're here, you can find out your level of English for free.
