About Modern Language School of SVG
Modern Language School of SVG is a language School based in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, We offer English and Spanish courses to the local and international students.
Modern Language School of SVG was founded in 2008 by Lesbia Tesorero-Martin a Venezuelan professor of foreign languages (Spanish and English) who has lived and taught Spanish and English in St. Vincent and the Grenadines since 2004.
In 2009, the school began its operations in St. Vincent from an in-home traditional classroom setting, with a very small amount of students who learned about the new language school mainly by referrals.
In January 2012, Modern Languages School of SVG incorporated the online learning modality using Skype, which was accepted and well received by regular and prospect students from St. Vincent and international students as a great and convenient solution to learn a language. Since then, the school operated using the online modality only.
However, as demand started to grow for Spanish and English classes in St. Vincent, the in-classroom courses resumed in March 2016 from a new place in Arnos Vale –a very centric location outside the city of Kingstown– to give Modern Languages School of SVG its first official building open to the public.
Since then, Modern Language School of SVG is growing fast. It is a very well organized language school, guided by current international standards and methodologies in the language teaching field, aimed at the use of technology, with qualified and experienced ESL and ELE (Spanish as a Foreign Language) teachers with a great passion for what they do, and very kind and friendly staff who are always willing to give you the best possible service and dedication during your language learning journey with us.
Our Mission is to provide high quality classroom-setting or online Spanish and English courses for students of our community and international students through a combination of a technological platform and innovative teaching methodologies which offer the students easy and convenient access to learn their target language, and to help them fulfill their language-oriented personal, professional and academic goals effectively and efficiently.
