IALC - International Association of Language Centres

IALC - International Association of Language Centres
Founded in 1983, the International Association of Language Centres (IALC) is a network of high-quality, independent language schools teaching their native language to international students. Located in famous capital and university cities, beautiful beach resorts and historic towns worldwide, IALC-accredited language schools provide effective language courses and cultural immersion for all ages, needs and interests.
Quality is guaranteed through minimum standards, regular inspection, a code of ethics and a philosophy of continuous improvement. IALC schools are for people who want to learn the language where it is spoken. We provide a high level of individual attention and offer language courses with accommodation, cultural activities and expert advice. We are represented by study travel agencies worldwide.
IALC is an association, run by members with a professional secretariat in Canterbury, UK. The benefits of membership are accreditation, professional exchange and promotion under the IALC label.
