Summary:

For Parents: We should not be in doubt or under pressure when raising our children bilingually or multilingually. There are ways that families can play a decisive role even in the cases of completely foreign languages.

For Teachers: When we encourage language learning and teach a foreign language to a monolingual speaker or to an already bilingual one, we are ultimately contributing to Bilingualism and Multilingualism.

The story behind our logo:

The emblem we have chosen combines the Canadian maple leaf and the Swiss cross, both of which are found on the flags of these countries. The word Network means exactly that: we engage a vast network of teachers and collaborators from around the world to provide our students with top class services and skills.

At the same time, we will be forever grateful to Greece; our family roots and the home of our very first school, the Loras English Academy.
