ABOUT LABCI

The Association of Latin American British Cultural Institutes (LABCI) was founded in the 1980s by a small group of non-for profit language schools – culturas – from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Mexico, Paraguay, Peru and Uruguay. These institutions joined forces and started working collaboratively to share their know – how and to contribute to the EFL community. 

Every year, over 400,000 people form part of this community by taking language lessons, choosing language certifications and participating in a range of professional EFL development programmes.

Moreover, a wide range of cultural activities is offered to bring English speaking cultures closer to the countries where LABCI is present.

Rethinking Roads: Turning Globalisation into Collaboration

AACI holds the presidency of LABCI this year and is honoured to host the Online Conference 2023

ABOUT AACI

Asociación Argentina de Cultura Inglesa, founded in 1927, is a non-profit organisation, whose main aim is to spread the English language as well as the British culture.

AACI has evolved, achieving excellence and living up to its mission, thanks to the strong sense of duty of a team of men and women – first known as AACI associates, nowadays members of the Board of Directors. It is thanks to this commitment that AACI has become a leading institution in the field of English Language Teaching in Argentina and is actually recognised for its vision and transparency. For almost a hundred years, over a million learners have been part of the AACI experience led by caring, first-class professionals.
