Their new training centre in Algeria’s second biggest city, has a number of well-equipped purpose-built training rooms, computer adaptive placement testing terminals, a spacious conference room, and an internet-based examination test centre.
After the official opening, and ceremonial cutting of the ribbon by Lord Risby, a short press conference was held highlighting the importance of English and continued good trade relations between Algeria and the UK, followed by a reception for leading businesses in Oran hosted by Mr Sofiane Chaib, Managing Director and partner of IN-tuition with his wife and partner Mrs Gayle Cooper-Chaib.

“IN-tuition has built a reputation of being able to deliver English language training programmes throughout Algeria and through increasing our number of Linguaphone language centres we are delighted to be able to offer our current and future clients modern, well equipped premises to service the growing demand for high quality training in Algeria”
