Portal Languages began as a private language tutoring service by our founders from their apartment in Costa Mesa, California.  The spark that launched the company came from a continuous demand for their language tutoring service.  In January 2009, the founders decided to establish Portal Languages – Costa Mesa in a 400 sq./ft. office space.

A website and a functional space was then created for the school.  We decided to adopt the language teaching methodology series “The Natural Approach, Language Acquisition” developed by Stephen D. Krashen and Tracy D Terrell.

What followed were several years of quick expansion as internet marketing campaigns, student referrals and a sound business principle began to pay off.

Remarkably, in less than 5 years, Portal Languages went from a fledgling start-up to the premier language school in Orange County, California.

Wishing to expand this success beyond our local market due to constant requests by students to open a school in their local market, Portal Languages chose franchising as the next step.




Statistic show the market size of the global language services industry from 2014 to 2021. In 2017, the global language services industry market size reached $43.8 billion U.S. dollars with a forecast to rise to $45 billion by 2020.


North America’s market is  34.82% percent, with a market size of just under 17.4 billion U.S. dollars expected for 2019.

America's demand for learning new languages is growing exponentially.  The population as a whole is your market.  Languages are beneficial to all age groups.
