British Council

Our library is free to British Council students and stocks a wide range of resources for learning English support. It's a great place to study, read magazines or to access the internet. Most of our books, DVDs and magazines can be borrowed to enjoy at home. 

We also have a free library available for our young learners at our centre in the Colegio Alemán with specially chosen books and DVDs. All resources are graded by age range and level and include stories, English exercises and exam practice books.

Join our library and get access to:

  • Language learning materials - available at all levels, these materials are designed to help you improve your English  writing, listening and speaking skills. Resources include exam practice books, grammar and skills books, and graded readers. 
  • DVD library - we offer a range of more than 1,000 DVDs, covering the best of British film, television drama, comedy and documentaries. Most of our DVDs have optional subtitles in English. 
  • Librarians - in our young learner library we can help and advise you on the most useful resources to meet your needs. 
  • Computers - in our adult library desks are available with computers where you can access the internet and a range of English skills exercises and listening practice.


British Council libraries are for the exclusive use of students at the centre. You have free access to library services for the duration of your course, including our assessment service and internet access.
