Wall Street Institute Expands Global Footprint With Opening of First Center in Central America

May 25, 2010

BALTIMORE, May 25 /PRNewswire/ — Wall Street Institute, the world’s premier provider of English language instruction, announced today the grand opening of a center in Nicaragua, the company’s first learning center in Central America.

Nicaragua is the largest country in Central America and is experiencing increased investment in growth industries such as tourism, making it a prime market for Wall Street Institute’s proven English language training method. The Wall Street Institute method focuses on speaking and understanding English in everyday business and social settings rather than the traditional focus on simply teaching grammar out of a textbook.

The new center is located in the main business district in Managua. It is the first in a series of centers planned for Central America.

The opening of the first center in Central American is the latest example of the company’s increased investment in expanding its global network. In the past two years, the company opened its first center on the African continent in Morocco and entered the markets of Russia and Czech Republic. It also celebrated the Grand Opening of its 400(th) center, located in Qingdao, China. Wall Street Institute currently operates over 400 centers in 27 countries.

“With the opening of the new center in Nicaragua, Wall Street Institute is taking the lead in building a global network of English learning centers that set a new standard of excellence and consistency in English language instruction around the world. In the process, we are creating a unique global community of students from an incredibly diverse array of cultures that share a common goal — to effectively communicate in English,” said Tim Daniels, Chairman and CEO of Wall Street Institute.
