What we do
Welcome to Language Academy Wales (LAW), an international language school aimed at foreign students and people staying in the UK who want to improve their language skills. Our training is delivered in tutor lead classes with the emphasis on practical teaching approaches, and in short intensive courses. Our international language school, located in Cardiff, South Wales, is open to people from all cultures and ages. Our training is accessible and affordable to people from all backgrounds.
As well as regular training and tutoring, we also organise a seasonal school where short and long courses are scheduled each season. These courses are targeted at people who want to improve their spoken and written language skills in minimal time and or a low cost.
The objective of the school is to teach learners to survive and thrive in everyday and professional English speaking situations. Our courses have been specifically designed for people intending a ‘fast-track’ approach to language acquisition but we also offer casual training course for learners with more time. Some of our learners are recent entrants to the UK and need a fast acquisition of language to prepare them for University, 6th form college, or for workplaces. We offer internationally recognised English language qualifications such as IELTS and PTE. Our international language school also offer courses in; French, German, Spanish, Italian and a Chinese.
We believe in cultural integration as a tool for language acquisition.
We believe that Language training does not have to happen in the class room
We believe that immersion within a language and culture speeds us language development
We value the uniqueness and viewpoint of our learners
