Audio-visual and multimedia aids as well as access to the Internet are provided for the students.
We try to maintain an international organizational and educational system; however, at times, we have to adapt it to the local requirements and customize our language programmes to suit the needs and demand in each country/area separately.
We are seeking prospective franchisees to set up their language schools for children and/or adults in the world (http://als-alexander.org/franchise.htm)
We are ready to grant exclusive territorial rights to capable, energetic, single, multi-unit, area or master franchisee:
Single Unit Franchisees, exclusivity to set up one language school in their town/area of a big city.
Multi-Unit Franchisees, exclusivity to set up more than one schools in their area.
Area/Master Franchisees, exclusivity to develop a whole state or country.
Each franchisee will use our system, know-how, trade name/mark service name, logos, etc, being his/her own boss and having complete control and independence in running his/her business according to our standards.
The total investment varies, depending on many parameters e.g. the country (American, African, Asian, Australia and New Zealand etc), the cost/standard of living, the existing competition, the premises and its remodeling, the furniture and equipment, the need of languages to-be-taught, the age and number of the students, the number of teaching hours, (regular or intensive courses), the demand and so on.
