Our teachers are native speakers
All of our teachers at PLURILINGUA language school hold university degrees and most are native speakers of the language which they teach, therefore having the necessary skills required by the Cypriot Ministry of Education for language teaching in officially recognised schools. It is essential that our teachers regularly participate in training courses designed to improve their teaching skills and continually further their knowledge of the latest research developments in language teaching. Due to their experience in teaching they are able to help you through any difficulties or problems you may have in your learning, aiding you efficiently and responsibly to improve your language skills.
At PLURILINGUA good teamwork is considered a vital element of the smooth running of the school, as a result our teachers meet weekly to exchange ideas and to coordinate activities within the school. Our teachers are highly motivated and committed people, equipped and able to handle all of your personal requests with flexibility, and as the individual interests of every student are taken into consideration, our classes appeal to all.
