Student Testimonials

"My name is André, from Brazil, and I attended BIA for 2 months last December. It's a small school, with few students, but this is an amazing thing, because we are able to know pretty much everyone and keep a pleasant atmosphere. The teacher, Jaqcy, is remarkable. Needless to talk about the staff, they supported me in every single issue I had while I was there. To conclude, if you are looking for a friendly environment, and the possibility of making new friends while learning English, that's the right school for you."

-André, Brazil (January 2014)
