About us

Our Story

Ivy Languages was born with the goal of giving back to society, in the form of language teaching and specialization at an affordable price, with quality and internationally validated certification. As we grew, our horizons broadened and we added our experienced consulting service seeking to safeguard SMEs affected by the COVID19 pandemic.

We were born in a complicated time that is why our eagerness to help made us establish affordable prices to all pockets with the quality that our learning at Ivy League universities has given us. Our goal is to show our experience and learned methodology to anyone who is from the beginning of their academic path abroad as well as experienced professionals who need to improve their level to face this ultra-competitive academic and labor market.

By providing high-quality education and consulting in this new normal, we aim to break what is established regarding teaching, focused on the student not only learning to speak a language, but also being able to reason, think and argue in it, and to safeguard your company and see a future in the face of so much uncertainty.
