This multifunction facility was established over 77 years ago by a British ambassador who wanted to do more to promote British culture within Argentina. Today the AACI teaches English to tens of thousands of students a year; runs several film, theater, culture, and art programs; and provides a welcoming environment for homesick English speakers. The center has a limited summer schedule from January to March and at press time British austerity measures are likely to also have an impact on programming. Pick up brochures at the center, or look up listings in the English-language Buenos Aires Herald.
