Centro Toscano di Lingue e Cultura Company Bio
The Learning Center of Tuscany (TLC) has been offering its language students and TEFL trainees top-notch services since 2006. TLC, in conjunction with TEFL International, opened its doors three years ago to offer an extremely high-quality TESOL/TEFL certification program and has quickly grown to become a well-respected language and culture center. The locals know about the local language center and continuously refer their family and friends to take part in its offerings. Not only is TLC a TEFL center, in fact, the demand for high-quality services in Florence is great; therefore, TLC has responded and now offers the following services and courses: the TEFL International TESOL certification course, language courses (group and private/individual lessons), and LOW COST English language classes offered through our very own Language Lounge!
And this is truly an exciting time to be at TLC!
The newest announcement is that TLC is the main location of the British Institutes Group in Florence. This means that TLC can offer an even bigger range of English language services to its students and customers alike!
The Learning Center of Tuscany believes that the study of language enhances communication, understanding and knowledge and that language and culture are inseparable. We are dedicated to the concept of intercultural exchange through language with the intention to provide deeper cultural understanding and awareness through our language teaching. Therefore, we are committed to offering a range of services that encompass our vision. We believe that language teaching and learning and cultural understanding go beyond the textbook and the classroom, and we seek to provide authentic experiences that will impact individuals as students, future teachers and world citizens. Our goal is to instill a capacity for cultural sensitivity that transcends individuals' experiences at The Learning Center of Tuscany. Our hope is that this will become and remain fundamental in many aspects of their lives, including career, relationships, travel, and understanding of their individual role in a global society.

"We both attended the TLC TEFL course in Florence in summertime. It was a fantastic experience that taught us a lot. We went there single, knowing nothing about English as a language and nothing about teaching. By the end of the month we had met each other, felt confident and comfortable in the classroom and had made a lot of new friends. We owe a lot to TLC not least because it is where we met, but also it gave us a great foundation as teachers which we have utilized in several jobs since leaving. From being observed and observing others time and time again since leaving TLC, we appreciate the teaching we received more and more because it has given us a head start over so many other teachers. This has allowed us to teach successfully in Italy and China, where we have been able to see some amazing sights together. Over the last year we have been to Florence, Rome, Venice, Beijing and Shanghai and are currently planning a trip to Thailand for the new year. It has been fantastic to see such different cultures in such varied parts of the world. Before doing TEFL we never imagined we would have all the experiences we have had so far and we highly recommend TLC to anybody!"
