Celebrating 50 years at LSI

The LSI story began back in 1965 when we opened our first school in Kensington, London. Fifty years on, our global network has expanded to our current fifteen schools spanning eight countries.

In that time many thousands of satisfied students have passed through our doors. We believe our continued success stems from the quality of our language learning provision and our determination to help every student achieve.

To mark our anniversary, here are some memories of LSI in our earlier days. Click on any image to open the gallery.
