The leader in
teaching languages

LC - Language Centre was founded in 1989 and has been accredited by The British Council since 1993. Our school is the longest established independent institution offering English language courses in Cardiff, and is licensed as a Tier 4 Highly Trusted Sponsor (HTS) for students by the UK Border Agency.

It is our aim to offer top quality language programmes at affordable prices and provide our students with personal care and attention in a homely and friendly learning environment. The owners, Greg Nelson and Grace Durighello, are both qualified EFL (English as a Foreign Language) teachers with several years'

experience and are personally involved in the day-to-day running of the school at every level. We offer a range of English language courses throughout the year and although the school has grown quite a lot since we started, we are still essentially a small school.
