Official Description (Provided by language school)
St Giles International was founded in 1955 by Paul Lindsay and his wife Diana. Paul trained to be a teacher and started his career teaching English and French to native English speakers at a north London polytechnic.
Since then, St Giles has grown into an international organisation with 7 year-round centres in the UK, USA and Canada, as well as Junior Summer Courses in the UK, USA and Canada and year-round schools in Brazil.
Paul Lindsay, the founder of St Giles, said "We were established a long time ago, but I am very pleased that all of the St Giles centres are today up-to-date and young in outlook, with vigorous lively teachers and administrative staff. Although we have all the latest electronic equipment, interactive whiteboards in the classrooms, self-access centres, we havenâ€™t overlooked the importance of good teaching. Our teachers are constantly updating their commitment to learner-centred learning and therefore the top priority of putting the studentâ€™s needs first."
