About Us

“Peace is not unity in similarity but unity in diversity, in the comparison and conciliation of differences.”

English Language Development Services was founded under the guiding principles of integrity, trust, and respect.

 

Our guiding principles are represented in our logo by the abstract humanoid. Each dot represents the head of a different culture, with their interlinking bodies forming a matrix of connection.

 

The humanoids are sharing their colors to represent unity within a blended cultural and linguistic community, as nurturing hands offer them an apple representing knowledge.

Our mission is to bring multicultural and international communities together through cultural exchange and English language development.

 

We aim to do this by:

  • Evaluating and synthesizing cultural-linguistic information to create solutions for successful communication

  • Facilitating relationships between linguistically and culturally diverse communities

  • Providing strategy and tools for English language development

 

Through our work and guiding principles, we aim to help create bonds of integrity, trust, and respect between culturally-linguistically diverse communities.
