You need never speak your own language!
HLI philosophy: Life's too short....be nice!
I am Ian Josephs M.A (Oxford), Chief Executive and founder of Home Language International. It was in 1979 that I hit on the original idea of offering language students the opportunity to study English in their teacher’s home on a 'one to one' basis. I called the new organisation 'Home English Lessons' but such was its success that there was soon a demand for the same services for other languages. I therefore changed the name to 'Home Language International' and we now offer 20 different languages in more than 30 countries worldwide, more than twice as many as our nearest competitor. This makes us by far the largest and most professional organization to offer these specialized services. We enthusiastically welcome language students of all ages, from all backgrounds, and have been doing so for more than 35 years!
Unlike some in my position, I am always available for contact by email, to both students and host teachers via my email address firstname.lastname@example.org*
