El Centro Britanico is a reputable English Academy which has been providing quality, lively and active English classes for over 35 years. We have three centers in the A Coruna region of Galicia in Milladoiro, Bertamirans and Santiago. The Santiago de Compostela centre is located in the centre of the new part of this historic city.

The centre is the largest of the three academies and moved to new premises in September 2008 which has a large reception and entrance, 4 offices, a comfortable staff room with tea and coffee making facilities, a large library facility with a wide selection of books, magazines, videos, DVDs and CD ROMs for home use or private study, 17 ample sized modern classrooms with air conditioning and excellent installations. A teachers’ resource room, bathrooms and meeting room. Each classroom is fully equipped with PC, projector, E-beam, built-in speakers and internet connection.

Our classes are all comfortable and light with modern installations. Classes are Monday to Friday and mostly in the afternoon and evening; however, there are classes in the mornings. Adults and children come twice a week; children’s classes are 55 minutes in length and adults 1.5 hour, except Friday when children come once a week for two hours.

El Centro Britanico is the centre in Santiago de Compostela for the University of Cambridge ESOL examinations and offers courses specially designed for the preparation of these exams.

El Centro Britanico encourages and actively supports professional development. There is a weekly training session in which there are presentations, training workshops, personal development time, discussion sessions, and administrative work and parents meetings. We have a system of observation that allows for feedback on classes and additional optional observation on request. Where possible we also encourage teachers to attend conferences and conventions set in the local area and provide funding for attendance at national events. Each teacher is issued with a personal development file at the beginning of term to record training sessions attended, conventions attended, training sessions, workshops and presentations given as well as work that the teacher has created; handouts, projects, worksheets etc. We are committed to teacher development and see this as an important aspect in maintaining high standards in the classroom.
