Converse International School of Languages offers adult courses in San Diego and San Francisco and provides junior programs across the US, while English in Chester is the only British Council accredited full-time, year-round English language training centre in the British city.
“Both schools have excellent reputations and a history of offering high-quality courses”
“As a privately owned, independent school, CISL has been delivering quality English programs for over 45 years,” said CISL school director, Tamara Fontana.
“Becoming a part of an organisation that celebrates and supports our mission, reaffirms the value of a solid education in an ever-changing industry.”
“QE has an established and growing presence in the market place and an exciting programme of missions which is just what we need,” added Richard Day, director of English in Chester.
“I am absolutely delighted to be part of this dynamic group.”
“Both schools have excellent reputations and a history of offering high-quality courses and services to their students,” QE chief executive Jonathan Swindell explained. “And both schools will add options for QE Agent partners.”
With summer programs for teenagers at university campuses, including Georgetown, Loyola Chicago, Yale, UC Berkeley, University of San Diego and LMU Los Angeles, CISL offers exciting new destinations for partners looking for junior programs, as well as a wide range of courses for adults, Swindell noted.
“English in Chester is one of the most respected, and highly accredited schools in the UK, and we are delighted to be working with them,” he added.
These additions bring the number of QE’s schools up to 74 across nine countries.
It currently has 42 schools in the UK and nine schools in the US, as well as nine ‘associate schools’, which offer English language courses in non-English speaking countries.
