TLG in Vancouver
The Language Gallery opens new centres in Germany and Canada
The Language Gallery (TLG) has expanded its international presence with the opening of new schools in Canada and Germany, bringing its total portfolio to eight centres across the UK, Europe and North America.

Simon Power, Managing Director at The Language Gallery, said, "Language teaching is a fast changing industry, and an indicator for trends in both migration and global economics. The key for us is to look ahead of changes, and adapt our offerings and style of teaching to the upcoming demands.


"English is the most studied language in the world and our courses explore different aspects of it, but we also need to provide more diverse offerings to stay on top of the competition."


The Germany school, located in the cosmopolitan Schoneberg area of Berlin, will offer full-time and part-time courses and can host 70 students across five classrooms. Students will be able to choose from General English, General German and German for Work, as well as a University Pathway Programme.


The Pathway Programme will help international students meet the necessary language requirements to study in a German university, preparing them for the TestDaf language exam required for university entrance. Later this year, the school will also launch additional Italian and Spanish evening courses.


Simon commented, "In Germany there is a varied demand, and we aim to engage with domestic and international students alike."


The Vancouver centre, which officially launched earlier this month, will initially focus on delivering General English with a portfolio of programmes set to expand in the future.


"Vancouver is one of the most linguistically diverse cities in the country, and a centre of attraction for international students," said Simon. "There is always a great demand for English courses, but we will be adding more languages and programmes to open new opportunities for people willing to expand their skills and knowledge."


The Language Gallery is owned by the Global University Systems (GUS) group.
