Linguaphone Language Learning Programs

The Linguaphone Institute London , founded in 1923, has always had close links with acedemic world. Jacques Roston, founder of the Institute and pioneer of the use of sound recordings in home- study language learning, was advised by distinguished scholars in the field of languages including Daniel Jones, probably the best-known phonetician this century and author of the definitive English Pronouncing Dictionary. In 1967 Linguaphone relationship with the acedemic world was formalised with the appointment of an Acedemic Advisory Committee chaired by the former provost of University College London, Ifor Evans( Lord Evans of Hungershall), ahd including among the members AC Gimson, Andre Martinet and Randolph Quirk.

During the 1970s and 1980s Linguaphone, in consultation with the Committee, published a successful new series which forms the basis of its current range of self- study courses in thirty international languages. The range now has over eight hundred courses and includes travel, business and children's specialities.
