Dedicated to you

Meet the team

We are passionate about language teaching. Our team is carefully selected. Our teachers and academic managers are experienced, qualified language experts and are trained to understand the needs of international students. Most importantly, we are all enthusiastic and interested in languages. Most of our team speaks two or three languages fluently.

Here is a selection of the core members of the team.
