About

A teaching offer which evolves along with the needs of our  students: that’s the proposal of our Madrid Somosaguas centre. We’ve released courses for 2-5 year old students; we’ve also got alternatives for adult students who want to prepare their Cambridge and IELTS exams either during the academic year or during a summer course.

These new initiatives complete our traditional offer of courses and allow children and teenagers to improve their English learning (General English Courses) or focus on those skills they want to develop (Skills Courses).

Courses for Young Learners

Summer courses for Young Learners

SUMMER PLUS SUMMER CAMP 

When summer comes around, children and teenagers have more free time to enjoy their hobbies, discover new interests and meet people who inspire them to keep seeking out new experiences. The Summer Plus programme is based on activities designed to activate our students’ English learning while they have fun. More information.

CAMBRIDGE EXAM PREPARATION COURSES

Our preparation courses will help your child to achieve an excellent result in Cambridge English exams such as Preliminary (PET), First (FCE), Advanced (CAE) or Proficiency (CPE). More information.

ENGLISH LAB BOOSTER COURSES

Our alternative for those who need to give their English a boost in order to change schools or spend a year abroad. More information.

English Extra - Much more than English classes

The Madrid Somosaguas centre is renowned for offering ample opportunities for  learning through free activities for adults, such as the Conversation and Cinema Clubs and the termly workshops (CV writing, giving presentations, job interviews in English, etc.).

Younger learners can sign up for free storytelling sessions and improve their inter-personal communication skills while doing sports, yoga and arts & crafts activities during our summer courses. Students of all ages can access the materials available in our library and on our online student/parent portal.

See our events page for more details.

Dates and how to pay

How to pay

We want to give you flexibility in the way you pay for your courses and we offer different options depending on the one you choose.

  • Courses for Adults: you can pay at the start of each term.
  • Courses for Young learners: you can pay for the whole course in advance or in two instalments.

 You can pay by:

  • Credit or debit card
  • Direct debit (Young Learners only)
  • Cheque to British Council
  • Bank transfer or payment into the following account - La Caixa: ES81 2100 6621 82 2200633918
    Afterwards you must send us the bank receipt or bring it to our Customer Service Department.

Discounts

• 5% for students with three or more family members studying simultaneously (for 50- hour-courses) at our Madrid centres, during the 2016/17 academic course. The discount will be made during the last term.

  • You and your children will need to buy a textbook for most courses - these are available at a 5% discount at the centre during the first week of term.

Refunds

Student interaction in class is key for their learning: consequently,  if we don’t reach a minimum number of students in our classes, we might have to cancel your course. In this case, a full refund will be made. If you cancel a place before the course start date, a refund minus an administration fee will be made.
