Heritage Institute of Languages was founded in 2005 by Hugo and Lessandra Alves, joined by Rauni and Rebecca da Mota in 2007. Together, their over 65 years of language learning and teaching experience have helped propel a small Spanish-only school into 2 locations offering 7 language options today.
Collectively, Heritage Institute’s directors have earned 3 CELTAs, 2 Masters Degrees, 1 DELE and 1 DELTA. They’ve reached fluency in 9 languages, and taught over 1,500 students from 36 countries combining their considerable expertise with years of experience in learning environments around the world.
Their dream is for Heritage to serve as a bridge that connects India and the world by providing culturally relevant and innovative language learning, equipping students to communicate confidently and succeed in their individual goals.
