Created in 2010 by two teachers passionate about languages, AFSL Pro was born from a vision that adapts to the realities and needs of companies and individuals. A teaching based on real world concepts that the learner can apply efficiently to their working environment.
Since its creation, the company has been aiming to meet the many challenges of teaching language in business. We have known for a long time that no learner is at the same stage in his/her progress and that no one learns the same way.
Our history is that of a dynamic company that relies on solid experience in pedagogy to renew itself and to offer language training to professionals.
