English Lessons in Barcelona

If you combine both native and non-native speakers, English is the most widely spoken language in the world. Clearly, that means that there are millions of people who speak this particular tongue, so it makes sense that you would want to learn it.

This is especially true in a big European city like Barcelona, which is also one of Spain’s most popular tourist destinations. It’s a place where you’ll be able to meet and talk to people from a variety of different countries who will often be looking to learn too!


Facts About English In Barcelona

  • Just like England itself, the city was also part of the Roman Empire. Because of the connection, there are historical parallels between Britain and Spain which could make for some interesting reading
  • The famous Barcelona football club (known as Barça) had English speaking founding members when it began in 1899. The other founder members were Spanish and Swiss.
  • As we mentioned, Barcelona is well-heeled when it comes to tourism. This means that there are many expats in the city, as well as locals fluent in the language to cater to international tourists.


Top 3 English speaking places in Barcelona

Like many other European and international cities, the number of expats and visitors who speak the language means that in many parts of the city, you won’t have to try hard to practice.

Here are some of the most well-known places where you can find English speakers:

  1. Las Ramblas- as one of the most visited parts of the city you won’t have to try hard to hear people speaking the language you’re looking to practice.
  2. El Raval- one of the neighborhoods that Las Ramblas passes through. This area is also known for being a popular tourist attraction where you could find many people to speak to.
  3. Barí Gothic- known as the “old quarter” of the city. You’ll be surrounded by foreigners, many of whom might not speak Spanish and would love to chat with you!


English Lessons In Barcelona Beyond the Classroom

As mentioned above, there are many tourist areas in the city where you’re likely to find people to speak with and take English classes in Barcelona outside of the classroom.

In addition to this, you could also join an expat group for people from the UK, Canada, America or even places like South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand and get to know some more people in the city who you can converse with. These kinds of groups also often organize meetups and other events that you could join.

As Spain’s capital city and one of it’s most valued tourist centers, why not go on a tour of the city and take the time to immerse yourself in a different way of speaking? There are many free walking tours in the city too, so learning doesn’t even need to be expensive!

If you’re looking to get out and about to make conversation, try Irish and English pubs like The Black Horse and Paddy Flaherty’s which serve traditional food and also screen football for local fans.

If you’re looking for a combination of a fun night out and lesson practice, go to an internationally owned bar like Milk Bar and Bistro in Bari Gòtic which is run by Irish expats. You will definitely bump into more people speaking tongues other than Spanish.

For those looking to expand their vocabulary and share some drinks with English speakers, visit Taller de Tapas. This city eatery is a tourist-friendly chain of tapas bars with a bilingual menu.
