Within the inlingua network, we use our exclusive inlingua teaching method. The method allows students to speak English, practice the language and progress very quickly. Our materials are researched and created by our Pedagogical Department in Bern, Switzerland. Over 500,000 students learn English and other languages with us every year at inlingua campuses worldwide. The materials are constantly updated to stay abreast of developments in the teaching field worldwide.
