We live in an increasingly globalized world where companies are looking for employees with cross-cultural competence and knowledge of foreign trends. Studying abroad is often described as a ‘life changing experience’. Not just for academics, people migrating to foreign countries with a prospect of better standard of living and career are a growing trend. Hence, the need to learn foreign languages other than English is in demand like never before.

With a vision to remove communication barriers, the Institute of English & Foreign Languages (IEFL) was established in 1974 in Hyderabad by David Prabhakar Sighamony (Founder Director & Principal) and his wife Dr.Subhashini Sighamony.
“Whatever reason a student may have for learning a language, our aim is to remove the communication barrier,” asserts David, who is also credited with floating Prabhu’s Seva Niketan, a social service center which had a Child Guidance Centre, an Immunization Clinic and an Eye Clinic. David is also felicitated by former President Dr. Shankar Dayal Sharma for being one of the highest blood donors of Telangana & Andhra Pradesh. Today, IEFL is a top notch institution offering coaching in major languages like French, German, Spanish, Italian, Russian, Chinese, Japanese and Portuguese. Apart from this, the institute also trains students in spoken English, soft skills and personality development, all at a very pocket-friendly fees.
