Our trainers have a college degree and a diploma or certification in teaching English as a second language, and come to us with at least 5 years experience. They are creative, energetic, and love what they do. They know that language is learned through communication (not doing exercises in a book) with good doses of laughter and positive emotion. They also know that grammar can’t be ignored and hard work is essential.

Teamwork and collaboration is necessary as well as reactivity to the needs of our clients, the stagiaires, and administration.
