We are a high-performing language school that’s trusted and recommended by world-class leaders who shape the future.
Clever, distinctive and strategically crafted, our Natural Conversational Approach (NCA) reflects a legacy of more than 20 years of the best educational practices within 15 years of operation. Our instructors have extensive experience identifying each student’s background and establishing a solid relationship that tailors our method to their specific needs.
Our 90 minutes private sessions are the most applauded by our students. These classes are the perfect option to get more out of our NCA method.
Whether it’s to open new markets, appeal to new audiences or simply be more diverse, we tailor our classes for specific goals and projects within organizations.
For your children and other family members, our family sessions are based on the family’s dynamics and ensure an enchanting learning experience.
Beyond the Natural Conversational Approach, our value is ground in a close relationship with our students. We understand each student’s role and appeal to their personality as a way into their individual learning process.
