Eurocentres - Language Learning Worldwide has language schools in 16 countries for people to learn English, French, Italian, Spanish, Russian, Chinese and Japanese in a country where the language concerned is spoken.


The first Eurocentres language school was founded in 1948 by a Swiss, Erhard Waespi, in Bournemouth and is probably the oldest language school still operating on England's south coast. Waespi's vision was that learning a language should be an enjoyable, enriching and personal experience that increased understanding between cultures. In 1960 he handed over his five schools for English (Bournemouth, London) French, (Lausanne) German (Cologne - now Berlin) and Italian (Florence) to the Eurocentres Foundation, which he then managed for another 20 years. In 1970, Eurocentres acquired Davies's Schools of English at Cambridge. After 2000 Eurocentres began to expand outside of Europe.

The Eurocentres Foundation has been a consultant to the Council of Europe for the development of the Common European Framework of Reference[1] for language teaching and learning.
