The Benjamin Franklin Institute of Yucatan is a nonprofit, binational center established in 1957 to promote cultural exchange between the United States and Mexico. It was founded under both countries’ laws and has, since then, produced thousands of graduates who have proceeded to diverse sectors and levels of profession in Mexico, the US, and across the globe. We have 12 branches in Mexico, as well as operate institutes in more than 60 countries.
Providing globally recognized courses, our specialization is teaching English and Spanish languages. We stimulate each student’s knowledge and understanding of Mexico and the United States’ cultural elements through activities that complement their fundamental formation. We also provide young people opportunities to use their English and Spanish communication skills in everyday situations to further enrich their listening comprehension, written, and oral proficiency.
