We offer full-time courses for adult students, 18 years and older and cater for levels from elementary to advanced, as well as Cambridge exam preparation classes. Our teaching staff has internationally recognised qualifications and years of overseas experience. They help students reach their potential through our small classes and dedicated teaching. Our courses run from 4-48 weeks and may start on any Monday.

Aspiring Language Institute is committed to retain the character of a small school and puts great value on creating a family atmosphere. The cosy home-like building offers the students an environment where personal attention to students needs is priority. The students learn in relaxed surroundings and they are offered many opportunities to reach their learning potential.

Our facilities included a varied mix of nationalities (Europe, Asia, Middle East & South Pacific) in a home-like environment. Our building boasts a large spacious garden. For the students we provide freshly brewed coffee and tea, free of charge; computers with free internet and wireless broadband. As activities we offer monthly themed school function (eg.
