The British American Institute has been organizing educational experiences for children, teens and adults for 25 years.
Our goal is to facilitate language learning through immersion and cultural exchange which makes for an enriching experience in every sense.
Our professional and personalized treatment allows our staff to understand firsthand each students´ needs as well as their families in order to offer the best possible academic experience abroad.
Why study abroad?
- A completely unforgettable and enriching experience for the student and furthermore, they are placed in the equivalent grade that they would be doing here.
- The most efficient and effective way to learn English. This consists of a complete cultural and linguistic immersion. Classes are taught in English and students are immersed in the language 24 hours a day.
- Personal growth and maturity. Students learn to be more independent, to live with people of different cultures, to take on more responsibilities, to develop their ability to adapt and to learn values such as respect and tolerance.
- Added value to your academic curriculum.
Steps to follow
Jose Maria is really happy there. He has adapted perfectly to his family and, if he didn’t have to come back, I think he’d be there another year if it weren’t for how cold it is in Wisconsin.
I’d like to thank and congratulate the whole school for their level of organization and how much they’ve helped us.
My experience with the J1 program was great: I studied in a typical American High School –a place where I had always dreamed of studying– and I lived with a magnificent family that I’ll always be a part of, while also making lifelong friends. What was the best thing about my year there? I couldn’t say for sure, but I have a lot of memories that nobody will ever be able to take away from me, and people who I’ll always be able to count on! The worst thing? Not being able to have all my family and friends in the same country.
My daughter Paula was able to enjoy the privilege of studying in the USA for a whole school year thanks to the J1 program that BAI put together for us. It was a marvelous experience all around in terms of staff, academics, and coming back with an advanced level of English. She’s made some great friends and learned a lot about the American way of life. BAI helped us to feel secure and acted professionally throughout the entire experience – an experience that is not easy at first. We’re going to try the same program with our son Ignacio.
