Fluent communication is the key for success in personal and business goals
We will help you achieve them!
Language Incorporated has been a leader in comprehensive English and Spanish instruction and peripheral services for over 10 years. The company was founded by a team of accomplished linguists, led by bilingual and multi-cultural expert, Dr. Oscar Jiménez. Our staff consists of professional instructors and counselors with extensive experience and passion for developing the most effective paths to reach our clients’ goals.
Our philosophy aims to fill a void in the language-learning environment by providing linguistic and cultural strategies to communicate fluently at work and in daily life. We provide the best options to learn a language with programmes based on comprehensive methods that include gramatical precision, accurate pronunciation and cultural awareness.
We adhere to the highest standards and take into account our clients’ needs for flexibility; our customized programmes are designed to achieve fluency in an optimal amount of time. Recognizing the global need for multiple levels of communication, we also provide complementary services, such as translation, interpretation, content editing and consulting for cultural accuracy.
Our company culture is based on teamwork, respect and consistent ethical values. We believe that we can only continue to grow as the best provider in our field if our multi-cultural experts lead eclectic approaches to language learning, constantly helping participants with strategic goal setting and practical skills.
SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY PROJECTS
Language Incorporated is highly committed to the education of new generations as a means to create a better future for all. We believe that people in vulnerable sectors such as youngsters or single mothers need a helping hand to achieve their full potential and be part of a healthy and successful workforce in a peaceful environment.
We will devote 3% of our profits (from every language project we develop) to educational projects for the at-risk groups mentioned above.
In 2019 our beneficiary target is a Technical High School: C.T.P. Don Bosco, in Alajuelita, San José. ColegioTécnico Don Bosco has 1300 High School students who also obtain a technical degree at the end of 6 years of studies. We are developing language programmes for them for the year 2019-2020. Starting in August 2019 many students will benefit from a bilingual education that will open doors to a better future.
We want to thank our valued corporate clients and participants in the PrimeSPANISH programmes who make it possible for us to contribute to this meaningful educational effort in our community.
