About Us

We help people to teach and learn language and interpreting skills

It’s been our mission ever since 1961, when our first language lab was made under the name Tandberg Educational. During the last 60 years, our language systems have been accepted in over 100 countries and 50,000 classroom installations and over 7 million users.

With our global headquarters in Finland - a leading light in educational practices in the 21st century - and close relations with our customers, our pedagogical approach has made us the global leader in teacher-led language labs and next gen virtual language learning environments.

I’ve worked at Sanako UK  for over 40 years and I’ve seen our products work. They provide inspirational, enjoyable and effective digital learning experiences, and help to improve language skills and confidence across all age-ranges and levels.

I’m excited by the opportunities that learning a language offers, and thrilled by the innovative products which we continue to bring to educational establishments across the UK.
