Welcome to the British Institute 

    Your language coach for international communication 

About us

Our vision is to bridge the cultural and linguistic divide to create a better international climate. The British Institute, which was established in 1972 in Stockholm, has over the years developed a variety of training strategies in order to meet the changing demands within the public and private sectors and other organisations. We cooperate with internationally recognised language schools, organisations and universities.
We enhance participants’ linguistic communication skills, improving their competence and confidence in demanding situations both orally and in writing. 
Our core values are:

  • Quality and Development
  • Service and Respect
  • Knowledge and Professionalism

Why choose language training via The British Institute?
Globalisation represents increased demands on linguistic and communication skills for more and more people working within both the public and the private sectors. This applies not only to people in leadership positions, but sales staff, administrators and receptionists, amongst many others, today have to carry out their general tasks more or less regularly in relevant and efficient English.
After more than 35 years in the business we are proud to have established ourselves as a highly professional and reliable training/coaching partner which understands the international arena. 
All our teachers working at The British Institute have English as their mother tongue, officially recognised teaching qualifications, as well as further/higher educational qualifications in a variety of subjects and areas.

Our team represents English as a global language; we have had teachers from the USA and Canada, Australia, South Africa and of course the UK. Our translators always translate to their first language thereby ensuring clarity, nuance sensitivity and wealth of linguistic variety.  The British Institute is a member of The Swedish Association of Accredited Language Training Providers (ASR). Membership assures customers of committed language provision and high quality language training.
