British Council Mexico Teaching Centre opened in Mexico City in March 2002. It offers a range of courses to approximately 1750 students (Adults and YLs) at our Teaching Centre in Polanco, IBERO University, Early Years ‘pop-up’ centres’ and in companies around the city. There are opportunities for teaching both face to face and online. We offer General English, Exam Preparation (IELTS and Cambridge), Skills and Business courses as well as Professional Skills and IELTS preparation short workshops. 

Students have high expectations of our courses and have come to expect classes tailored to their needs, which often centre on needing English for work and study purposes. Individualised counselling sessions and continuous assessment are key features of our offer to students of all levels. We also encourage development of learner autonomy through a focus on learner training and use of IT in and out of the classroom.
