Mission and Vision
Mission: To provide opportunities to learn any language at a minimal cost
GLN promotes language learning by employing a unique model standing on three pillars:
GLN offers language classes in more than 60 languages. We strive to build students’ confidence and competence to communicate with others in meaningful and appropriate ways, while developing teachers as educators and leaders.
Please check out our 2012 Annual Report to see how GLN advances its mission.
Vision: To connect and empower people through language and culture
GLN envisions a peaceful, cooperative and inclusive world where people practice and model tolerance, understanding, and social responsibility across languages and cultures. Our vision is based on the premise that language is a fundamental tool that unlocks human potential and empowers people to transcend cultural barriers and make a positive impact in a changing global society. Language offers new perspectives, broadens horizons and enriches lives because it enables individuals to establish invaluable connections around the globe.
In order to realize our vision, we aim to establish a diverse network of lifelong language learners within the United States and abroad.
