Meet the Team

The LILA* team works hard to keep students motivated and ensure they have the best possible experience while studying with us. LILA* teachers are qualified to a minimum of CELTA (level 5) with senior teachers being qualified to Master’s degree and/or diploma level (DELTA / Dip. TESOL – level 7)

The LILA* administration team are always on hand to make sure that the LILA* experience is as easy and straightforward as possible.

Our determination to set high academic standards combined with the friendly and personal service that our students enjoy mean that LILA* students love to learn.
