Language learning for travel, culture and tourism

The Elodie Margaux Online Language School is an innovative e-Learning initiative providing free online lessons based on a cultural-tourism approach for language learning.


The Founder

The founder of this unique online language institute is Dr. Robin Ruggles, recently retired from the Canadian International Development Agency (now Global Affairs Canada) where he served as a senior education advisor. He had multiple postings in Asia, Europe, Africa and Latin America.


His Ph.D. in Educational Planning and Administration is from the University of Toronto. His Certificate in Teaching English as a Second Language is from the University of Winnipeg.

This site is inspired by our young people’s love for learning about new cultures and their curiosity to explore new worlds. A special note of thanks goes to Élodie Margaux, Raymond and Teddy and the students of our founding partner schools whose investigative skills contributed to the cultural content highlighted in the various lessons.
