When asked about the future plans for the learning partnerships strategy, Academic Manager of LCI Education Network’s Languages Across Borders, Petar Stojanovic said

“Our 'English for' series will be mirrored in languages other than English, such as French, Spanish, Indonesian and Japanese, and be offered as tailored language learning solutions for our clientele base.”

“It is our great hope that this strategic mission will set Languages Across Borders apart as an unstoppable force in the global language teaching and learning field.” said Stojanovic.
