Eurocentres Network Benefits
Eurocentres Atlantic Canada is a great complement to the hustle and bustle of its counterparts in Vancouver and Toronto. With the Eurocentres network and systems, there is the unique opportunity to seamlessly transition from one destination to another without losing track of studies or starting from the beginning again.

The Eurocentres Foundation for Language and Educational Centres is a leading language teaching provider and aims to contribute towards a better understanding among people everywhere by helping to bridge language, cultural and social barriers.
The founder of Eurocentres, Dr. Erhard Wespi, a Swiss teacher, opened the first language school in Bournemouth in 1948. Ten years later, he met Gottlieb Duttweiler, the founder of Migros, the largest retail group in Switzerland and one of the most influential Swiss entrepreneurs. Today, the Eurocentres Foundation forms part of the Migros Cultural Percentage, a non-profit activity institution, dedicated to support cultural and educational activities.
With key contributions in the development of the Common European Framework of Reference for Language (CEFR) for the Council of Europe, Eurocentres has defined today’s quality standards for foreign language teaching. With coaching through the EUROCENTRES SUCCESS SYSTEM supported by the online campus my.Eurocentres, Eurocentres’ students benefit from progress tracking and personalisation to learn languages in an efficient and sustainable way. The standardised systems enable students to seamlessly transition between destinations throughout the Eurocentres network during the same course.
Eurocentres maintains a worldwide network of over 35 schools in attractive destinations on six continents. The Foundation is headquartered in Zurich and London.
