Dictyon offers language courses in a highly professional and comfortable environment. Our classes incorporate the latest in learning technology and are led by some of the area’s most skilled and personable instructors. All of our instructors are native speakers who share a common desire to not only provide language courses, but also to share their country’s customs and culture with their students.

At Dictyon, we believe that the study of languages not only increases one’s ability to communicate with others, but also promotes increased powers of critical thinking, clarity of expression, and cognitive flexibility. By helping our students develop these skills, we bring them closer to meeting their professional and personal goals in today’s challenging global environment.

Dictyon’s cutting-edge, cost-effective language courses are customized to each student, using proven instructional strategies and techniques. In this learner-focused environment, our instructors combine the latest high-tech resources with traditional teaching methods to motivate students to attain and often surpass their goals.

Our instructors undergo continuous training in the use of foreign language teaching methodologies. They continuously assess each individual’s learning style and progress as it pertains to their previously stated objectives and adjust the course accordingly.

We value the diversity of our employees and the unique perspectives they bring to Dictyon. By capitalizing on cultural differences, we underscore our commitment to treating everyone with fairness and respect.

Our mission is to empower our students with the communications skills necessary to work effectively with diverse colleagues and clients around the world. Dictyon provides the language courses and cultural understanding needed to communicate successfully in a global market.

Flexible and effective language courses for all, whether you are a working professional, full-time student, or curious newcomer, is our goal.
