Established in 2007, LangÉcole teaches numerous languages including Hindi with native-speaking teachers. The Hindi courses range from a month long homestay program to online, individual and group classes. They also offer LangJobs where students can look for jobs that require their newly found language skills. Program Schedule LangÉcole provides three levels of language learning – basic, intermediate and advanced. The school prides itself on its customisation of the program for your individual needs. This includes 4-6 hours of classes a week either on a weekday or weekend, and individual or group learning. Depending on your needs, the schedule comes in. Group sessions can vary depending on which campus you want to choose – from anywhere between May to October. However, individually, you can start classes at any time. LangÉcole also provides online classes so you could start your language practice earlier. Additionally you can opt into a homestay and 2-3hrs of Hindi classes a day to get an unique experience. Affordability The cost varies depending on the experience and the length of the study. For a 40 hour Hindi course, it will cost $500 USD ($691 AUD) or for a homestay and 2-3hrs of classes a day for the same price per week. This includes course materials such as textbooks as well as support during and post studies. Location The school has different locations throughout India, which includes:

  • Bangalore
  • Goregaon
Classes can also be done online. Reputation LangÉcole has been covered in the media such as Economic Times and NDTV. The reputation of the teachers is that their language skills are either fluent or native speakers.

Students take language classes at LangÉcole to gain employment or seeking a promotion at work. There are assessments and examinations in order to test your language ability.

As their mission statement says, “We are Language Yogis! Our mission is to connect the world through languages.” LangJobs certainly provides what they say – opportunities to work with languages.
