At International Council, our story is one of unwavering passion, groundbreaking innovation, and a relentless pursuit of transforming language education. Founded by Michael E. Fulford, a visionary in the field of neurolinguistics and second language acquisition, International Council was born out of a deep-rooted desire to revolutionize the way individuals learn and master new languages. With an illustrious career spanning three decades, Michael’s expertise in linguistics, neurolinguistics, and technology has been the driving force behind our mission. His profound understanding of the intricacies of language acquisition, coupled with his practical experience in implementing successful language programs across the Western Hemisphere, has shaped the core philosophy of International Council.

In 1998, Michael developed the pioneering L.E.N.G.U.A approach, a holistic method rooted in neurology, psychology, and sociolinguistics. This innovative approach laid the foundation for our
commitment to creating effective and personalized language learning strategies that cater to the unique needs of each learner.

Joining forces with Ivan D. Franco , a brilliant systems engineer and our CTO, International Council has embarked on a journey to harness the power of cutting-edge technology and artificial intelligence to enhance the language learning experience. Ivan’s expertise in enterprise software architecture, computer security, and ethical hacking, along with his ability to lead multidisciplinary teams, has been instrumental in developing our state-of-the-art language learning platform.

Together, Michael and Ivan have formed a synergistic leadership team, combining their strengths in linguistic insights and technological innovation to set a new standard in language education. Their shared vision has given birth to our unique Power-Triad approach, seamlessly integrating the expertise of Human Teachers (HTs), the adaptability of Artificial Intelligence Tutors (AITs), and the efficiency of our AI-driven Learning Management System (LMS).

At International Council, we believe that language learning should be accessible, engaging, and effective for everyone. Our story is one of breaking down barriers, challenging traditional methods,
and embracing innovation to empower individuals worldwide to unlock their full linguistic potential.

As we continue to push the boundaries of language education, our passion remains unwavering. We are dedicated to providing learners with unparalleled learning experiences, harnessing the power of technology and human expertise to create a world where language is no longer a barrier, but a bridge that connects individuals, cultures, and opportunities.
