New endings, new beginnings
We always start a new year full of expectations, don’t we? A new year implies on the renewal of energy, focus and the hope of making our dreams come true. 2022 wasn’t any different. New year, new me, right? And LLI was here for you, to make sure your journey went as smooth and enjoyable as possible.
LLI has been going through a huge transformation ever since Covid hit. We have been investing in technology, developing curriculum, and improving on every angle so we can always be better at helping you achieve your goals.
Here is a quick recap of a few things we achieved during the year of 2022.
- assisted over 150 students in their English-speaking journey,
- got all our students through to college and university through our Pathway Program,
- had its first Summer Program after a 2-year hiatus (Thank you for that, Covid),
- visited Brazil and Berlin for conferences,
- was able to get back on track for our favorite events throughout the year: Halloween, Potlucks, Movie days, and so many more!
Along the year we celebrated our student of the month; had multiple parties; welcomed new members to the team as well as volunteers during the Summer Program. Luis and Maria were extremely helpful and made sure all our students had the necessary support and assistance during our trips to Toronto, Canada’s Wonderland and Niagara Falls. Our beloved teacher and coordinator JP was present on every excursion, making sure every single student was having the time of their lives. Wanda, our Head of Academics, has been working closely with the students and the direction of the school to improve our curriculum and train the best team of teachers you will ever meet!
Our team has grown a lot this year. We hired new teachers, expanded on the internal support staff and have been investing in new programs and innovating our scheduled activities.
LLI has big plans for the year 2023 and we are extremely excited to share some of them with you without giving too many spoilers.
This new coming year:
- We have more Colleges and Universities partnering up with us for the Pathway Program.
- The Summer Program has been developed even further and now we have more trips, more events and better yet: the opportunity for the students to also take our Business Course during the most amazing trip of their lives.
- We are adding monthly extra curricular activities such as: the Book Club, Painting Night, Trivia Night and so much more!
