Idea - language schools for immigrants like me :)
I'm not a teacher, but I'm looking for any good language schools chains. I would like to introduce one in Canada, but establish it with a little twist - my main target would be immigrants from Eastern Europe.
I am in Warsaw now and I see language schools on every corner, but still I know many people going to Canada or USA, while they can not speak a word in English. It is a problem when they arrive in Canada because they stick to their nationalities and they are afreid of speaking and learning other language. I was wondering what it looks like and whether or not it is worth rgo to Canada myself and try to open something on my own - I know some good English teachers there (I don't have enough language skills to do it on my own). I checked google and found 'speak-up.com' - they offer franchising and and they have experience worldwide. They already have some schools in Warsaw, but as far as I know there are no schools in Canada.
So...Do you have any other ideas of good language schools franchising? This doesn't have to be a chain of language schools, which is now present in Poland. I am ready to negotiate with any new, but I need something to start with. Maybe you just know any good chain (but necessarily in/from Canada - I'm not able to try in USA) and can recommend something from your own experience? this would be big help!
