About the employer

St James Language Center has been the quality leader in private English language schools since it opened in 1995 in Mairena del Aljarafe, Seville.

We have grown to five centres all delivering the same high quality classes to students from as little as two year olds to adults. We also teach in schools in the province of Seville.

We have our own English and Science programme for school age students which makes us unique in what we offer and also attracts many English teachers who not only want to deliver dynamic English classes but something a bit out of the ordinary and more interesting.

Throughout the year we have an activity and social programme including Halloween and Christmas parties, video clubs, treasure hunts, excursions as well as summer camps in Spain or UK/USA.

The two most important things to us are our teachers and our students which is why we have developed an excellent teacher training programme over the years tailored for teachers with different levels of experience so that our students can continue to enjoy dynamic, communicative, fun lessons whilst learning English all at the same time!

St. James - Almonte is the latest addition to the St. James network of language schools. We are a franchise which opened in 2017. Since our opening the number of students enrolling in our academy has continued to grow.

Our clients come from Almonte and the surrounding towns. This gives us the opportunity to get to know our students and clients a bit better and develop bonds with the local community.

Almonte is in Southwest Spain, in the province of Huelva. It is famous for ‘El Rocío’ pilgrimage, the largest in Spain, which attracts nearly a million people every year during Pentecost. There are other traditional festivals as well, such as the ‘San Pedro’ fair in June.

Almonte is surrounded by beautiful countryside, most notably Doñana National Park, where flamingos and other migratory birds stop on their way between Europe and Africa. The beach of Matalascañas is also just 15 minutes away by car.

If you choose to live nearby, living costs are reasonable. However, if you prefer to live in Seville or Huelva, Almonte can be easily accessed from the motorway.

We are committed to maintaining St. James educational standards and our teachers benefit from its excellent training programme. We also provide lots of support in our school, working closely with our teachers with their day-to-day planning and with issues that may arise in their classes.
