in Philadelphia Language Center Language Classes

Our goal is simple: To create language learning success stories, one student at a time.

In our global society, the acquisition of linguistic and cultural competency provides the necessary ability to function independently, appropriately, and fluently outside of one's native culture.   Part of Philadelphia Language Center's broad mission falls in line with this necessity by maintaining and encouraging programs which link the center's and its resources to its local, national, and international communities.   Likewise, the mission of PLC is to enrich, enhance, and transform foreign language and cultural learning.
