Message from founder Catherine Alapont

Born in the French culture and background, I had the opportunity to travel extensively with my family and was very fortunate to be exposed to many cultures and languages at an early age.

A multilingual & Linguistic Graduate in my own right, I have found that the ability to communicate easily in many languages has opened doors for me around the world. These skills and experience gave me the credentials to work with the Diplomatic Corp and the EU Delegation, advising government representatives and diplomats on protocol and foreign language communication.

Since 1995, I have been developing foreign language programs internationally as well as conducting Language and cross-cultural training workshops in: Italy, France, Spain & USA and recently in Japan.I have coordinated UN and EU Programs and received several accolades for many projects including my contribution to a Diplomatic EU Language and Cultural European Program in New York City.

Creating LaPont Language Centre has been a very exciting project for our passionate team…

We look forward to welcome you at our Language Centre!
