Ghana Institute of Languages Follow

Est.: 1961 - Publicly Owned - Barners Road, Accra, Ghana

The Ghana Institute of Languages (GIL) was established under the Ministry of Education in 1961 by the first president of the Republic of Ghana, Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah. In 1963 by a Presidential Decree of Incorporation, the Institute was attached to the Office of the President. In 1969, Legislative Instrument 114 was revoked, and the National Liberation Council Decree (NLCD 324), which replaced it, gave the Institute the status of an autonomous Body Corporate with a Board of Management appointed by the Commissioner for Education, Culture and Sports. It was later placed under the control of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Currently the National Council for Tertiary Education (NCTE) has oversight responsibility over the Institute under the Ministry of Education Science and Sports. The Institute was established to teach foreign languages in order to promote Pan-Africanism and cordial relations between Ghanaians and foreigners. The GIL has upheld these goals and improved in quality and scope by the teaching of international languages, namely: Arabic, Chinese, English, French, German, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish, at the beginner, intermediate and advanced levels.


The vision of the Ghana Institute of Languages is to become a pre-eminent international centre of learning to produce first class professionals in modern languages who will foster African unity, promote socio-economic and political integration in Africa and facilitate global communication.
