To our future learners, teachers, and patrons
Language Schools in Albania (LSIA) is the first homegrown English language non-profit that has served Albania for a quarter of a century. Based in Tirana, we have acted as an intersection of language learning for students, teachers, and partner organizations in Albania and across the world. Students and professors from local universities joined together to establish LSIA in April 1994 and have since transformed it into the country's leading English learning institution. With 30,000 students across 16 locations in Albania, Kosovo, and North Macedonia, our organization continues to grow each year. LSIA’s alumni include 10,000 certified language students who have continued to pursue their education and develop their careers worldwide through our strong network of educational partners.
Supporting our efforts, LSIA has partnered with numerous local and international organizations. Our UK partners include Hilderstone College, Anglican School, Share One Language (SOL), CAFOD, Save the Children, Adria, and NPAC, and the US' Peace Corps, People to People International (PTPI), Fragile Peace, and Menaul School. Gratefully, we have been the recipient of generous support from individuals and organizations based in the UK, including the United Kingdom Supporters of LSIA.
LSIA has maintained a truly international staff consisting of 300 English teachers, including 45 native teachers from the UK, US, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. While our staff has developed the majority of our curriculum, we have incorporated effective methods and educational devices from our partner, PTPI. The demographic capability of our 4000 students demonstrates a communicative ability taking place between students aged 10-18 years old and who reside in the US, UK, and other English speaking countries through our partnerships with Pen Pal and Schools & Classroom program of PTPI.
While in-person instruction remains the heart and pride of our curriculum, we refuse to rest on our laurels and have recently launched online courses in English, Korean, and German. We have partnered with the Menual School based in New Mexico to provide online courses for international students, and have launched Chinese language courses in cooperation with the Confucian Institute. As our students achieve an independent grade of fluency, we assist them with their enrollments into universities located in the UK, US, and recently, Germany, to help further their education both in language and in their respective disciplines. Students receive more than just an education; we empower them to integrate themselves successfully in new environments.
At LSIA, we believe in teaching excellence and strive to provide the knowledge and resources to support our students’ journeys as they continue to grow and become leaders. Learning is a process that should never end, and we believe it is served best through friendships that arise from the limitless exchange of educational, cultural, and humanitarian activities. This is the environment we seek for our students and teachers, and one we want to share with those who are pursuing the same path to global peace and prosperity.
May we never stop learning.
