All inlingua centers are commited to high quality standards. When it comes to dealing with language learners from abroad additional quality standards become relevant to insure a successful immersion in a foreign culture.
Our trainers are native speakers and have been extensively trained in the inlingua direct method within the inlingua network. They use proprietary inlingua materials and follow the inlingua’s Trainers Resource Pack (where applicable).
inlingua is committed to small groups. The smaller the group, the more you talk, the faster you learn a language. The maximum group size is always clearly indicated in the offer.
