Read about recent events at ILSC-New Delhi.
ILSC-New Delhi is launching two new Indian immersion programs in 2014. The Explore India program combines 2 weeks of morning English classes, which focus on India's culture, architecture, history and more, with afternoons activities that give students the chance to explore New Delhi and put their learning into action. The English and Yoga Program combines English classes with intensive Yoga practice. Optional Friday afternoon yoga classes and workshops at local yoga studios will bring students outside of the classroom and into the community. This 2 or 4 week program is perfect for yoga beginners or seasoned yoga enthusiasts. Accommodation packages are available for both programs.
We are very excited to announce that ILSC will be opening a brand new campus in New York in 2014, and we look forward to offering students the incredible opportunity to study in this urban, trendsetting city that so many people around the world dream of visiting!

In addition to learning English, students will experience all of the exciting life and culture available in this major world center of finance, the arts, fashion, film, and politics – New York is an influential city that has something for everyone!

On Saturday August 31, 2013, ILSC was deeply honoured to receive the 2013 STM Star Chain School Award at Study Travel Magazine’s annual Star Awards Gala! ILSC has been shortlisted in the past number of years for the STM Star North American School Award, and last year, for the Star Chain School award as our continued global growth moved us into this new category (STM defines a Chain School as any school with 5 or more locations). As a fairly new entrant in this category, we reached out to our partners from the perspective that we’re a small chain school with lots of heart, strength, and diversity, and that lets our students be unique. We are extremely humbled to have won this award which is a sign of recognition from our many industry partners. ILSC’s success and strength is due to our collaboration with, and support from so many amazing partners who work with us in providing transformative learning and living experiences. Our partners continually push us to innovate and grow in response to changing needs in this dynamic industry. Thanks so much to the many people who have supported us to get to this point! Check out the 2013 Star Awards highlights on STM’s website.
ILSC-New Delhi's Multi-cultural event was organized to celebrate the diversity along with recognizing, understanding and appreciating differences. The multi-cultural event was filled with inspiring performances, provocative thought, self – reflection and celebration of our multi-dimensional identities.
It was a daylong event for students that focused on the strong desire to greater understanding and appreciation of multiculturalism. The event included around 20 countries. Students were encouraged to reflect their nationality in different forms like food, dance, music, costumes etc. During the event, the event hall buzzed with conversations and great enthusiasm to know more about each participating country.
We hope to help empower the ILSC community to develop authentic relationships.
LTE girls – Sushma, Laxmi, Anu, Pamreichon and Chandani graduated the program in May. They showed tremendous growth and learning capability. Our goal is to help the girls not only graduate with basic English communication skills but to allow them to flourish as adults. Our LTE girls graduate with an English Communication Certificate, Job skills like interview preparation and resume writing, Life skills including health, hygiene, emotional well-being and legal rights and Financial Literacy Workshops.
It was Earth month and ILSC-New Delhi was ready to take the commitment to environmental protection.
Teachers were making strides towards ensuring that their students are ready and equipped to use their knowledge of the environment and take it with them through the classroom and out on the streets. We managed to do the following:
- Week 1: Power Down
- Week 2: Use Less
- Week 3: Recycling Awareness
- Week 4: Promise Tree
ILSC’s long anticipated GoGlobal Video is now up on our YouTube channel. The video features footage from students and staff at all of our 7 locations, all filmed with GoPro cameras to capture the ILSC experience from the first person perspective. Back in July, we launched our GoGlobal video contest and shortlisted 1 student and 1 staff member from each location out of our list of entrants. Congratulations to Branca from ILSC-San Francisco who won a GoPro camera to keep!
To celebrate the launch, we are currently running a GoGlobal photo contest to get students to share their ILSC experiences on Facebook, and Instagram. Students will have the opportunity to win 1 of 8 iPod shuffles, or even an iPad mini! More importantly, we’ll get to find out how students lives are being changed by their experiences studying at ILSC.
Check out the new photo contest on our website, and tune into our social media sites for more.
