Custom Language Services offers on-site and off-site language and cross-cultural training, curriculum design, and “in-house” program development. We work with individuals and organizations to identify specific language and intercultural training needs, and design programs that align with personal and professional goals.  

What makes CLS unique is our level of customization, our use of field-specific content, and our many years of language teaching and program design experience. Read more About CLS, what we do and how we do it.
