SUL, a family run language school, was founded by Christopher and Nicole Retallack in 1980. Christopher is from Cornwall in England and Nicole is from France. Christopher has worked in education in the Solomon Islands, Africa and India. He has a passion to promote greater international understanding and cooperation, through the medium of English language teaching.

There is now a wealth of experience and expertise in our head office team. We all believe in helping our students benefit not only by improving their skills in English, but also by gaining greater self-confidence, a more broad minded approach to life and many new friends from many different countries.

SUL began offering English language courses to Juniors and adults in the beautiful county of Cornwall. Our student numbers grew by establishing many new centres throughout the UK and Ireland. Our students now come from all over Europe, as well as Russia and the Far East including China.  We also continue to help an orphanage in India and we are promoting environmentally friendly policies wherever we work.

We are proud to be making a difference, helping our students on the road to realising their dreams and adding to all those who believe in international understanding and cooperation.
