Cincinnati—A Great Place to Experience while Learning a Second Language

Cincilingua’s language learning institute is located in the heart of downtown Cincinnati, Ohio, USA. Gentle rolling hills and a picturesque setting along the banks of the Ohio River welcome visitors to one of the country’s most beautiful and “most livable” cities. You’ll find Cincinnati has all the advantages of a big city with the accessibility and easy-going atmosphere of a friendly small town.

Get to Know Cincinnati—One of the Country’s “Top Fun Cities”

Ranked as one of the “Top Fun Cities” in the United States, Cincinnati offers major league sports, restaurants for all tastes, shopping from quirky to Tiffany’s, arts performances from folk music to the Symphony to Shakespeare.

Located in the country’s Midwest, but bordering the South, the area offers a rich cultural diversity for you to explore during your stay. Cincinnati is a “walking city,” no need to take public transportation, though it is readily available. Or take a day trip!
