Over the five years to 2017, per capita disposable income and international travel by US residents are expected to grow, leading to solid growth for the Language Instruction industry. Moving forward, the industry will build on its success in the online, corporate and international markets to fuel growth. Furthermore, steady immigration levels will support long-term demand for English-language courses in the domestic market. Demand for language training will also grow as the US population becomes more diverse and businesses attempt to target the new demographic markets. Nevertheless, competition from language instruction software continues to pose a threat to the industry.
Language schools offer language instruction ranging from conversational skills for personal enrichment to intensive training courses for career or educational opportunities. Schools teach foreign languages, sign language and English as a second language. This industry does not include language instruction software.
