St James Language Center opened in 1995 with one centre and three staff and has grown to two centres in Mairena del Aljarafe, one in Gelves and a franchise in Pilas with over twenty five staff. The majority of our teachers work full-time but we also offer part-time contracts as well.

We teach general English combined with other subjects such as Science, Humanities and Maths which are incorporated into the English classes throughout the academic year for our school age students.

We are a Trinity College Registered Examination Centre and belong to the Cambridge KET/PET committee. We prepare students for Cambridge KET/PET/FCE/CAE and Cambridge Young Learners’ Exams.

We run a successful activity programme for our students throughout the year which includes Halloween and Christmas parties, excursions to Gibraltar, sports’ day and regular workshops.

In the summer we run a playscheme, intensive adult courses and courses to USA and UK for  teenagers and summer camps for younger ones.

Our centre in Ciudad Expo has ten classrooms, Mairena Centro has eight and Gelves two; all fully equipped with interactive whiteboards and air conditioning/heating.

Classes are a maximum of twelve students who come for three hours a week.
Our students are mostly from the age of three to teenagers who come between the hours of 4pm to 8.30pm with some adult classes in the mornings and at 8.30pm.
St. James belongs to the following professional organizations:

  • ACEIA(the association of language schools in Andalusia).
