About the British Council
The British Council generates cultural opportunities in more than 100 countries through its work in the fields of education, society, art, science, teaching and English certification, touching over 128 million people every year.
The British Council launched in Spain 79 years ago, and last year, 30,000 people trusted in the organisation to learn English, and 57,000 to get their certificate. 2,000 families chose the bicultural, bilingual system for their children at the British Council School.
The challenge of providing better English teaching and deepening international connections is what drives the organisation forward. For this reason, the British Council collaborates with governments, professors and both Spanish and English educational institutions that encourage student exchanges between Spain and the United Kingdom.
Alongside supporting the generation of cultural opportunities, the British Council raises awareness of the work of British scientists and artists. Last year, the organisation participated in more than fifty events raising awareness of these figures in the Spanish public.
