The SHAPE Language Centre (SLC)
formerly known as the Language Circle, is a Morale and Welfare Activity created more than 35 years ago in order to facilitate and improve communication among the nations represented at the Headquarters.
Over the years, it has developed into a professional language school for adults with expanded programmes and additional duties particularly since the closure of the Internationally Funded Programme in 1993. We now also have to meet the requirements of a more job-orientated category of students at all levels of the SHAPE hierarchy, the NMRs and PCC.
At the same time, we have not lost our ‘'social vocation'' in a growing international community. Both aspects of our mission make us equally happy and proud whether it be the excellent results of students taking the Cambridge University Examinations or the many long-lasting friendships born in our classes.
If you are interested in getting to know other people's language and culture or if your job requires a better knowledge of NATO official languages, come and join one of our classes.
We all look forward to meeting you.
