Before founding CORE Languages, I was a German instructor. My passion for the language and culture was inspired by the fantastic teachers I worked with throughout years of intensive study. It was always clear to me that they were there not just to teach, but to have their students walk away enriched, with their lives made better and fuller by what they learned.
When I started teaching, I sought to bring that same energy, dedication, and sense of purpose into my own classrooms. I founded CORE Languages to expand that vision, seeing the growing need for language training options designed to meet the unique needs of business environments .
For over a decade, CORE has helped businesses achieve their strategic international goals by empowering employees to learn and find joy in communicating in a new language and cultural context.
While expanding our offerings and service area, we’ve maintained our commitment to top quality instruction and individualized client service. I communicate with every instructor that works with CORE Languages across the country and I challenge my team to find ways that we can continually improve our operations and add value to our clients’ lives.
It’s a privilege to do what we do and share what we love with you. Together, let’s make “global ready” a reality for your workforce.

President & CEO
We work with talented instructors and trainers who are passionate about teaching and empowering others. We view ourselves as an extension of our clients’ training management teams, working hand-in-hand to build, customize, and skillfully execute programs that meet their organization’s needs.
We believe that learning another language is empowering and rewarding. Our work enriches the life experiences of our students by providing the gifts of communication, intercultural understanding, and professional travel opportunities.
We provide outstanding support to our instructors so they can focus on their craft and bring creativity to each class they teach. To best support our students, we offer the convenience of on-site courses and pursue a realistic, data-grounded approach to teaching and engaging adults with demanding schedules.
We commit ourselves to continual self-evaluation to ensure that our programs have strategic, meaningful goals and achieve desired results for our clients. We think outside the box and employ technology in developing new and effective methods of program evaluation.
DATA & TRANSPARENCY
We embrace data as a tool to enhance student and program success, and we prioritize data security and privacy. We generate meaningful client reports that provide useful, accessible data points and make our clients more nimble in their decision making.
Learning isn’t one size fits all. Your language training company shouldn’t be, either.
Since our founding in 2007, CORE Languages has been committed to providing superior language and intercultural training that supports businesses in their development of a global ready workforce. Our difference comes from our backgrounds. Every member of the CORE Languages staff has instruction or expatriation experience. When we come to work each day, we bring our individual passions for learning about other languages and cultures, and our combined knowledge of what works, what doesn’t, and what’s new in our field.
We also recognize that learning is an intrinsically personal experience that isn’t one size fits all. We are proud to be a company that now operates in every U.S. state. We are equally proud that we have maintained our commitment to individualized service and communication with clients and students — as well as an abiding compassion for the challenges of expatriation, relocation, and the language learning journey.
This shines through every day in the curricular customization and personalized student-instructor matching that sets us apart, whether we are…
- Creating a language training program that is scaleable and consistent for a client seeking training for associates at multiple U.S. branches;
- Designing a course focused on cultural sensitivity and business etiquette in corporate meetings for a client whose Chinese associates are preparing to participate in their first board meeting in the United States; or
- Listening to the concerns of accompanying family members and finding the best possible instructor match for their needs — we’ve paired a pregnant partner with an English teacher who was also experiencing pregnancy, and matched children with instructors who specialize in teaching through play.
