Telelangue is a global provider of language services and a pioneer in corporate language learning.
Jean Michel Dubedout, who was only 24 at the time, founded the company in 1981. In the same year, their first innovative teaching concept was introduced to the market: telephone classes. This was only the first step on their way to a completely new approach to improving language learning in terms of efficiency and effectiveness. In the following years, the company continued to engineer innovative concepts.
Today, Telelangue’s clients are not only able to participate in telephone courses; there are many new ways for them to learn a language as well, such as Blended Learning, virtual classrooms, e-learning and face to face lessons in 18 different languages. This enormous development can be attributed to their employees. Telelangue employs people who all share something in common: a passion for languages. The Research and Development Department constantly looks for new innovative solutions to improve their customer’s learning success.
