THE CONSOLATA LANGUAGE CENTRE

Consolata Language Centre aims at high standards and quality language teaching and learning and as such has installed state of the art facilities backed by advanced technology.
The Institute of the Consolata Missionaries, inspired by the experience of Pentecost (Acts of the Apostles 2, 1- 13), profound and enriching missionary experience of many of its missionaries from all walks of life and different countries and with a great desire of contributing to the ever growing challenge of qualitative teaching and learning foreign languages in Kenya, and Africa as a whole begun to nurse the idea of constructing and establishing a language Centre, dedicated to Our Lady of Consolata.
The principal objective of setting up the Language Centre is to facilitate language learning and cultural immersion for missionaries and other people, regardless of religious, cultural, ideological or political affiliations coming to Kenya and going to foreign lands for diverse purposes, the core one being the evangelization and proclamation of the GOOD NEWS of freedom of the sons and daughters of God in truth and justice.
After long years of deliberation and hard work the construction of the Centre kicked off in 2008 and after the completion of the building the CONSOLATA LANGUAGE CENTRE opened its doors to the first group of students on the 14th of January 2010.
