Instituto de Lenguas Modernas (ILEMO)

ILEMO was officially launch in 2017 as part of our efforts to provide high quality education via APL. The goal of ILEMO is to provide free access to modern languages to youth in both sides of the border (Anse-a-pitres and Pedernales). Our curriculum offers: English, Spanish, Haitian Creole and French. We also provide teachers training to local modern language teachers seeking to improve their skills.

Our program is 10 months long (January to October) of each year. We have 90% graduation rate. More than 150 students graduate yearly.
