“After I took early retirement in Spring 2015 I decided to learn another language and enrolled in Spanish classes at La Academia purely based on location. I must say how pleased I have been with our teacher, Sonia Murillo, and the overall learning experience. I have made some new friends in the classes and Sonia makes every lesson informative and fun. My wife and I are going to Costa Rica and Ecuador next February and I can’t wait to practice my new skills.”

“I was seconded to China last year, as part of ambitious expansion plans into the Far East. I desperately wanted to learn the language and acclimatise myself with their way of life. After initially feeling slightly overwhelmed and nervous, la Academia not only helped me grasp the language, but also helped me to understand the Chinese culture. Twelve months in and I’m loving every minute – I feel confident in my job and I’m embracing every bit of life overseas. It’s all thanks to La Academia.”

“I came to the UK in 2010 only knowing a few words of English. I struggled, not only to fit into my role at work, but also to settle into the way of life. After completing a course at la Academia, my life just turned around. The teachers made me feel extremely relaxed and made sure that every part of the course was fun and engaging. Five years on and I feel like I’ve been speaking English for my entire life!”

“We set up a subsidiary in Germany two years ago. We were a little apprehensive to begin with as none of the team spoke the language. Whilst we knew that many of our business partners spoke excellent English, we wanted to stand out from the crowd and make a real impression on the local market. We enrolled the entire team on a course at la Academia and within a short space of time we were able to speak to colleagues and clients in a confident way. The business is going from strength-to-strength and much of that is down to our new-found ability to speak the language. The courses really captured our imagination and made it extremely rewarding to learn a new language – even at the age of 43!”

“Our business operates in a number of different territories, with complex contractual agreements being sent from one supplier to another in a variety of languages. It’s essential that we have a firm grasp on every aspect of the supply chain, which is where la Academia stepped in. Without its translation and interpreting service, our business would be extremely disjointed and unable to do business quickly and efficiently. We know we can rely on la Academia to translate lengthy and complex documents that help us do business across the world in a streamlined and cost-effective way.”
