We are an International Language Learning Company who privately own and operate 39 language schools in 17 different Countries around the World. We teach 8 different languages - these include English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Chinese, Russian and Japanese. All the languages are taught in their countries of origin which gives the students the unique opportunity to learn the language where it is spoken as well as communicate with local people in this language. Meanwhile, students are also able to engross themselves in the local culture and customs of the country they are staying in, thus increasing their comprehension of the language they are studying.
For UK Private students and parents considering taking a second language course just send an email and one of our representatives will make contact with you to have an informal meeting at a place which is most convenient to you, where full details of all the courses on offer around the world (including the tuition fees) will be given. ISRUK offer intensive language courses which include time periods ranging from three months to a full year. The objective of intensive language learning is that by the end of the course the student will be able to speak, read and fully communicate in the chosen language.
