ILAC assists inlingua Vancouver/ INVO

28 Apr 2020 12:30 PM | Anonymous

The International Language Academy of Canada is helping to transition current and future students of ELT provider inlingua Vancouver and its sister school INVO College after the Canadian institution announced it will be permanently closing its doors on May 29 due to the coronavirus crisis.

Students in both ESL and college programs at inlingua Vancouver / INVO College will be transitioning to ILAC and ILAC International College if they choose to do so. 

The COVID-19 outbreak has put an enormous strain on private schools and service providers that are dependent on student mobility

Over the next few weeks, students in both ESL and college programs at inlingua Vancouver / INVO College will be transitioning to ILAC and ILAC International College if they choose to do so. 

“With a decreasing number of students, our continued operation was not sustainable in the long run”

A statement at the end of March posted by the director of inlingua Vancouver / INVO College, Juan Palacio, explained that the global restrictions in travel, the health restrictions for campus operations, the uncertainty of the crisis and the market conditions were all factors contributing to the decision to stop operations at the end of May.

“With a decreasing number of students, our continued operation was not sustainable in the long run,” Palacio wrote online.

To ensure that students have a good experience, inlingua Vancouver / INVO College said it has chosen ILAC KISS as the best option for virtual delivery for its students. 

“It has been a pleasure working with Juan Palacio to help him transition his students,” says Jonathan Kolber, CEO of ILAC. “I’ve known Juan for 20 years and I’ve never seen anyone roll-up their business with such dignity and integrity.”   

The COVID-19 outbreak has put an enormous strain on the international education industry in Canada, in particular private schools and service providers that are dependent on student mobility.

ILAC said it is working closely with colleagues and partners around the world to create a strategy for students already in Canada as well as others who would like to continue learning online in preparation for September.
