English and Spanish
Founded in 1998, Net Languages provides engaging online courses for learning both English and Spanish, in tutored or non-tutored formats.
We work with individual students, corporate clients, government departments and educational institutions all over the world and have developed different business models for each sector.
With English Anyplace you can learn English online with a small group of other students and your own teacher.
It’s just like being in a classroom -- except that you can do it from the comfort of your own home or office!
For Spanish teachers
The Formación ELE Spanish teacher training courses include both pre-service courses (in convenient two-week modules) and specialised in-service courses.
Founded in Catalonia in 1972, the IHLS Group has grown to become a multinational provider of language courses, language exams and teacher training.
All the language schools in the group are affiliated to the IHWO organisation and share that organisation’s passion for helping people achieve their linguist goals as efficiently as possible.
The IHLS Group was also a pioneer in developing web-based language courses which means we can now deliver quality language courses to students anywhere in the world.
Our aim is to help people develop their language skills (or language teaching skills) as efficiently as possible. Which means we take the pedagogical side of our business very seriously.
Our teachers and trainers have written dozens of text books and language teaching methodology books for all the top publishers. This isn’t a coincidence.
We organise some of the largest conferences for language teachers in Europe. This isn’t a coincidence either.
Client care isn’t something we take lightly. We can’t guarantee that all our students will always achieve all their goals, but we can guarantee that we will do our very best to help them succeed.
We have taught literally hundreds of thousands of students over the past 45 years. Our success is based principally on the recommendation of these students.
Among the many language and teacher training courses we offer, these are probably the most popular...
English courses, which we offer for all ages in all of our language schools
Exam courses preparing for Cambridge English and IELTS Tests.
Exam courses for DELE, the equivalent Spanish language exams.
Teacher training courses for English teachers (ELT or "TEFL") and for Spanish teachers (ELE).
