Language Link was established in 1975 and is now a successful International Language Training Organisation. Our London school is accredited by the British Council and we are members of English UK. Our Teacher Training Programmes are recognised by Cambridge ESOL. Language Link also has excellent links with a number of major UK Universities. Language Link has partner schools throughout the world in China, Russia, Vietnam and Uzbekistan.

For over 45 years Language Link has earned a reputation as a provider of high-quality training to students from more than 50 countries around the world.

In 1976, our teachers were exclusively British and had a general education background without any specific TEFL training. Since we first opened, we have seen the student populations change, the professionalisation of English Language Teaching and the wider formalisation and oversight of the industry. We have enthusiastically been a part of this wider accreditation and vetting of the industry through British Council accreditation and becoming members of English UK.

Language Link started as a London based organisation and still maintains its heart in Kensington but anticipating the onset of globalisation and the development of English as the most important world language we have also moved farther afield. We first went to Eastern Europe in 1991 establishing schools and partnerships in Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia, Hungary, East Germany and then Russia, Vietnam and China! In 2013 we opened a school in Tashkent, Uzbekistan and 2018 in Kiev, Ukraine.

In 2006, we begun participating in education-based projects funded by the European Union and British Council. Since that time, we have completed multiple projects in cooperation with accredited training organisations throughout Europe, most recent of which include WISED (Women in Social Enterprise Development), MMNH (Memory Methods New Horizons), IETP (International Experience Teaching Project).

In all these countries we operate a variety of services. As well as general English Language Tuition, we run junior camps, school outreach programmes, specialised training for businesses, university preparation, teacher training and much more besides! 

In 2010 we launched our on-line training platform called TEFL Express (www.teflexpress.co.uk). The Platform contains a series of Teacher Training Programmes that are accredited Internationally by ACCREDITAT, and that enable our Trainees to work and teach throughout the world.

This is the first rung on our Career Pathway that leads, through a series of practical work experiences, to a choice of careers in a number of fields.
