Inlingua Around The World

About Inlingua®

Inlingua® was formed in Bern, Switzerland in 1968 in the context of Europe’s need to learn each other’s languages quickly for professional, business, and academic purposes, bringing the famous Swiss/German efficiency and engineering mindset to the development of a more effective training approach. Deeply committed to the direct and communicative methods of language training, inlingua® developed a unique, proven, and highly-effective approach, known simply as the inlingua® Method. This network rapidly grew to become the largest network of independently owned and operated language schools in the world, united by a commitment to high quality ideals and uniform training principles.
