What our students say

We help our students to gain the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in learning a language.

  • Communication, Professionalism, Quality, Value. My professor is fabulous - and the staff is attentive and pleasant I can highly recommend them!

    Nancy Shalett

  • I started taking individual in-person French classes through ISL just before the pandemic shut everything down. Classes continued on Zoom which is a great format for one-on-one language training.

    Bill Geary

    Spanish Course

  • My daughter took online Spanish lessons here for over a year (Ages 6-7). The lessons were geared towards her age group with a super sweet and patient teacher, and lucky for us, small class size (2 students). So she got a lot of one-on-one attention and now has a great basic understanding of the Spanish language. The staff at ISL is also very friendly, understanding, and responsive. I highly recommend them!
