Academia TLC, Torrevieja Language Centre, is an academy dedicated to teaching languages: English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Japanese and Valencian. In 1999 we started teaching English and Spanish for foreigners and little by little we have been expanding our language offering. Our teachers are qualified, highly experienced native instructors. We offer courses for children from 3 years, teenagers and adults focusing on language proficiency.
