Company history

You don’t just become a leading language institute overnight. This requires a great deal of experience. For over 30 years now, STE Languages has provided language education in the form of language training programmes, language courses, e-learning and workshops. You can rely on our expertise because of our extensive experience.


Language and culture: at home in the world

Our company roots are with Philips in Eindhoven in the south-east of the Netherlands. The Language Education Department at Philips prepared employees for their work abroad. The focus was on language and culture. International Philips employees also learnt Dutch. In 1978 the department became an independent company. After a few name changes, the language institute has operated under the name of ‘Studiecentrum Talen Eindhoven’ (Eindhoven Language Study Centre) since 1995. To increase our visibility and build our brand, particularly in view of our international course participants, we have used the abbreviation of ‘STE Languages’ since 2012.

The importance of reliable communication

Over the years, STE Languages has grown substantially. Our main office on the Aalsterweg in Eindhoven and we have various other teaching locations in Eindhoven and Sittard. STE Languages has a broad clientele ranging from large multinationals, internationally operating companies, SMEs, municipalities, social organisations, educational institutions to (professional) sports associations. To give you an impression: we work for ASML, DAF, Philips, TomTom, De Lage Landen, Océ, DSM, gemeente Eindhoven, PSV, UWV, Fontys en Salto schools. Our clients value the importance of reliable communication. We provide tailor-made language training courses. The learning objectives of the course participant combined with your needs and requirements as our client form the basis of our language solutions.
