We’ve been teaching English in Barcelona since 1944. Over the last five years, 14,500 students of all ages have improved their English in classes in our teaching centres and in local schools.
This partnership allows children and teenagers aged 12-17 to extend their academic achievement beyond their school studies and to attend British Council English courses in their own school. Apart from the flexibility of this system, our schools partnership programme stands out for its high quality.
Students in partner schools develop all their communicative skills in English by following an educational programme based on innovative teaching methodologies. The objectives we set at each age support them to reach their full potential.
Parents play an important role in the courses delivered in partner schools. Quarterly assessment systems as well as regular face to face counselling sessions with teachers are some of the advantages families can benefit from. Our students also progress outside the classes, with the help of materials available on our apps, websites and online resources.
We at the British Council are not just committed to high quality standards in English teaching but also to Child Protection. We care about our students’ welfare and we’ve developed a corporate policy which all our staff members follow. We are also part of Keeping Children Safe, an international network of organizations committed to protecting children.
