Quality language schools worldwide

Founded in 1983, the International Association of Language Centres is a global network of high-quality, independent language schools that teach the official language of their country.

Learning the language where it is spoken is the most effective and enjoyable way to improve your all-round language skills fast and gain deeper cultural insight.
