What our students say

 IML provided me with a fantastic 6 week night course for refreshing my Spanish before travelling overseas. The tutors are fantastic - highly fluent and very patient taking the time to explain things to me. On top of that, the price of the course was very competitive.

Vanessa, IML student

 I first studied Cantonese at IML in 2000 so that I could communicate better with my classmates. Then I started Italian lessons. Now that I am home with my 2nd baby, IML has provided me with flexible times for picking up my Italian again.
