A Smart New Look – LSI London Hampstead gets a makeover

Tuesday, April 13th, 2010

Our London school, LSI London Hampstead, holds a special place in company director David Immanuel’s heart. It is from this spot  back in 1965 that Language Studies International first took tentative steps into the world of language teaching. Certainly the school building is an impressive one. Built in the late 1870s this large Victorian building, orginally  a home for a wealthy London family, is ideally suited to its present day educational use.

“All the classrooms here are a generous size and with the high ceilings it makes the rooms feel even more spacious. We have an amazing garden too which is in constant use during the summer with a whirl of BBQs and sporting activities. The students just love it,” comments school director Greg Wickline.

Over the last year there have been quite a few changes to the building itself. This winter the entire outside of the building has been given a fresh new coat of paint, the  reception area has had a revamp and some toilet facilities have been redecorated (with plans to do two more this year). All in all it is a much smarter place to study and work. Why not come and find out for yourselves?

Under the Spotlight – LSI becomes a case study for MBA students

Monday, April 12th, 2010

Based at the Manhattan Campus of the Metropolitan College of New York (MCNY) , LSI New York has over many years established a mutually beneficial relationship with MCNY. Indeed, LSI New York offers one of the designated ESL programs  permitting international students to follow on their LSI language courses by studying  a huge array of degree courses at MCNY.

Due to this tradition of close cooperation between  (MCNY) and LSI New York, LSI was only too happy to help out when approached by a group of MBA students asking to use LSI as a case study for their MBA program. These 25 students set out to focus on three main strands of the LSI business: Finance, Media Management and General adminstration. Initially meeting were held with the Director and staff at LSI New York but then spread out to include seminars and discussions with many of the top LSI management, LSI marketing , and culminated in a two-week trip to Europe visiting our schools in London and Zurich. The intention for this first phase of the project is to produce some recommendations for LSI as to how we can further improve our business. We look forward to hearing what they have to say!
