American language and Culture Immersion

Big image

American Language and Culture Immersion is the only language program that guarantees to beat all competitors’ prices while offering top quality instruction, support, and services. Our instructional programs cater to business professionals, labor workers, and spouses (we offer a comprehensive spousal assistance program), making the transition easier for all involved.

Spousal Assistance Program:

Every year companies set out to rise to the expectations of a global and competitive market. Unfortunately, expatriate spousal dissatisfaction is the biggest reason that assignments fail and companies lose millions of dollars every year. At ALCI, we offer an affordable and comprehensive package for spouses. Our focus goes beyond only language needs depending on whether the spouse's desire is to maintain the home or enter the workplace. Cross-cultural training and local tours are highlighted in this program. ALCI offers two distinct Spousal Support programs.
