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 guaranteed to have a Cambridge CELTA or equivalent as a minimum level of qualification and many have a DELTA or MA TESOL qualification.

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.
