Your learning, our success

Innovative English Training

Ziggurat Team

Matthew T. Ray is the director and founder of the Corporate Language School. With over 25 years of experience in the field of education and language consultancy, he leads a team of native, qualified teachers with a wealth of teaching experience.

All our teachers:

  • Are mother-tongue speakers.
  • Boast extensive personal and professional experience.
  • Have a wide range of different accents: the richness of a language stems from the cultural diversity of its speakers.
  • Undergo initial training about the Ziggurat philosophy.
Together we form a multicultural melting pot with a mission: to teach students how to learn and ensure that they maintain daily contact with the language.
