Learning foreign languages according to a recipe for success: inlingua celebrates its 50th anniversary
It all began 50 years ago with a simple vision: why not learn a foreign language the way you learn your mother tongue as a child? This simple and effective approach laid the foundation for one of the greatest success stories in language schools.
The first inlingua language school opened in Bern, Switzerland, in 1968. In class, the focus was clearly on the spoken language. This ensured a quick sense of achievement and joy in learning. Satisfied students helped the method to a rapid breakthrough, and the inlingua language schools experienced a worldwide triumph.
Today inlingua is one of the oldest internationally active language schools with over 300 language training centers in 34 countries, spread over four continents. The worldwide network consists of legally independent licensees who are committed to meeting inlingua's standards. inlingua has been represented in Salzburg since 1990 and continues the success story.
Advantage through technology
Nothing has changed about the successful basic idea, the rapid acquisition of language through the spoken word. On the other hand, new technologies have been added that use playful approaches to strengthen the will to persevere or provide more flexibility with virtual classrooms.
One of the innovative new methods is the combination of classroom teaching and e-learning. In addition to the classic lessons at the language school, the e-learning platform offers an ideal supplement for individual, flexible language training at home.
The virtual classroom, on the other hand, allows participants to take part in an online language course with experienced language trainers. The students interact live with other language students and are challenged in the same way as in classical school lessons.
