The mission of The Via Lingua Florence is to develop global professionals who are thoughtful, creative and effective practitioners of teaching English as a Foreign Language. Our graduates are prepared with essential knowledge, competencies and dispositions in the field.

Via Lingua professional training programs are designed to reflect best practices in education. Curricular coherence is strengthened through rigorous study and dialogue on purpose, course content, and intended candidate learning outcomes.

The mission of the Via Lingua International Group emphasizes the importance of effective teaching and learning and views the educational experience as extending beyond the classroom. In collaboration with the educational community students develop an appreciation for the challenge to provide all learners with equitable and excellent learning outcomes. Through rigorous humanistic curricular activities students gain the necessary expertise to meet this challenge and participate in a collaborative environment which supports individual excellence in content, skill development, classroom management, and service within the educational community.
Our teacher education programs strive to develop visionary educators who will take the lead in transforming education to better serve all students. We endeavor to prepare competent and caring educators who exemplify the qualities of commitment, service, vision and leadership, and who, in turn, will cultivate these qualities in the students they teach.
