Founded in 1991, Eaquals is the leading accreditation body in Europe, committed to attest quality in language teaching and learning. Eaquals works with the Council of Europe and many other international organizations about language education. The main goals of Eaquals are to improve the experience of language learners by developing quality standards for the teaching of modern languages, to deliver accreditation against these standards for providers of language education, and to develop practical resources, and offer training and support for those working in the field of modern languages.
Institutions which apply for the Eaquals accreditation are responsible for proving that they are committed to excellence in all stages of their language education and instruction, and, to that end, they go through a challenging inspection process.
