The Language Centre of Ireland (LCI) and Language Learning International (LLI) have joined forces to create a single organization and the first year-round English language centre dedicated to young learners in Ireland.
While LCI will specialize in English language courses for adults, LLI will offer the widest range of English courses available in Ireland for young learners. Speaking at the launch of the new alliance in Dublin, Irene Tuite, marketing director, said: “The new organisation allows LCI and LLI to retain our brand identities and to focus on our key
strengths. We are committed to making our new partnership really agent-friendly. We want to make doing business with us as easy as possible.”
Tom Doyle, managing director, said: “This is an exciting way to celebrate LCI's 40th anniversary. By coming together with LLI, we are offering a wider range of courses, the very best teachers, a vast host family base, great residential options for adults and juniors and an easier way of doing business in Ireland. LCI and LLI have worked closely for many years. We share a common vision and an excitement about the future. This is the ideal platform to launch new services to a changing market
Also speaking at the Dublin launch, director Eugene Murphy said: “In our Kildare Street and Clarinda College, Sandycove bases, we believe we offer some of the best learning environments you will find anywhere. I am particularly happy that Clarinda will be the base for Ireland's first year-round English language centre dedicated to young learners.”
