IALC unveils new members

21, October, 2014

The International Association of Language Centres (Ialc) has announced two new full members from Europe at the start of its official year from October, as well as five new branch centres of existing members worldwide.

Hilderstone College, based in the UK seaside town of Broadstairs, has joined Ialc as a full member. Founded in 1970, the college offers a range of courses including intensive English, university preparation, business English and exam preparation courses for adult learners aged 17 and above. Hilderstone also provides teacher development courses for English and CLIL.

The second full new IALC school is College International de Cannes, which teaches French language programmes to adults and teenagers in Cannes, France. Founded in 1931 by French poet Paul Valery, the schools is set on a campus by the sea, a 15-minute walk from the Old Port, and offers 15 levels of French language and culture courses.

One of the fam trips scheduled after the Ialc 2015 Workshop in Rouen includes a visit to College International de Cannes.

Meanwhile, existing Ialc member Bridge has recently launched three new BridgePathway programmes in the USA at: Chadron State College, Nebraska; Colorado Mesa University in Grand Junction, Colorado; and Philadelphia University, Pennsylvania. UK-based Lila* has opened a new centre in London, and Langports English Language College in Australia has opened a new campus in Sydney.
