About the school and city

IH Santiago de Compostela - El Centro Britanico is a well-established and prestigious English language academy located in Santiago de Compostela, a beautiful part of Galicia, Spain.

We started teaching English in 1979 in the centre of Santiago, and later expanded to the nearby suburbs of Milladoiro and Bertamiráns. The team of about 35 teachers and staff deliver teacher training, language clases, exams, and summer camps. 

With academic experience built up over forty years, and a dedication to introducing innovative pedagogical techniques, we are proud that our teachers create such good rapport with all their students and enjoy a very positive learning environment. 

We believe our location, experience as an English Language institution, employment opportunities, and our passion for teacher training makes us a great choice for a CELTA course.
