Two girls reading in a library

British Council

Our library is free to British Council Somosaguas students and stocks a wide range of resources for learning English support. It's a great place to study, read newspapers and magazines or access the internet. Our librarian is on hand to offer advice on the best resources to support your English studies.

Join our library and get access to:

  • Language learning materials - available at all levels, these materials are designed to help you improve your reading, writing, listening and speaking English skills. Resources include exam practice books, grammar and skills books, and graded readers. 
  • Librarian - can offer you educational counselling and advice on the best resources to use. 
  • Young readers - a small fiction section in our Young Learners' section, which includes a range of audio books. Our librarian will be happy to help you and your child explore our selection. 
  • Reading Passport - designed to encourage children to use the library and get into the habit of reading. Children receive stamps every time they read a book and can win prizes when they have read a certain number of books.
  • DVD library - we offer a wide range of DVDs, covering the best of British film, television drama, comedy, documentaries, educational and children's programmes. Most of our DVDs have optional subtitles in English.
  • Teaching resources - we offer a large collection of ELT books from beginner to advanced levels, and children to adult learners. 


British Council Somosaguas students have free library membership for the length of your course.
