About Tampa Language Center in Tampa, Florida

Mission Statement

The mission of Alex EDU LLC., DBA Tampa Language Center, established in 1988, is to provide high-quality English language instruction in a culturally sensitive environment and equip students with knowledge, skills, and experiences that help them achieve their personal and academic goals.

We mainly teach international students English so they can go to college, get their Master's degree, or Doctorate degrees at universities in the United States. We often train students in English to help them in their profession, which requires high level knowledge of English.

Tampa Language Center has also trained local and foreign business executives and employees in English. Upon request, we provide professional and personal testimonials which outline our sterling reputation and relationships with many businesses in the Tampa Bay area.
