The Vision of HERE AND NOW

The Dream of Creating
1B Francophones

Learning is a natural process of living. We live to learn and that’s what make us happy. Let’s do it together.

In 2016 Deepti Balagopal an outstanding student joined the team as Professor and went on to become the Director. The IMMERSION PROGRAM introduced in 2017 was a runaway success  and set stage for the transformation from a language center to an institute for languages.

The Covid-19 Pandemic challenged us with classroom teaching coming to a halt. However, we  were quick to respond and introduced “TEF Compass”.

TEF COMPASS Program is a 100% online learning program designed to crack the TEF CANADA Exam for will help secure upto 74 points and boost your CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System). The  success of this program motivates us to diversify into the e-learning approach.
