About us

Oslo opera

At Language Power International AS, we don't just teach languages; we bridge cultures, facilitate integration, and empower connections. Our journey began in 1979 when Jean-Pierre Hermier, a French-Vietnamese man with a remarkable life story, founded what would become a beacon of linguistic excellence. Born in the tumult of the Vietnam War, he embarked on a path that led him from Vietnam to France, and ultimately to Norway. Amid these twists of fate, the spark for Language Power International was ignited.

Jean-Pierre's vision was clear - to help both newcomers and locals in Norway embrace each other's languages and cultures. With this mission, he established "Oslo sprÄksenter," a language school that swiftly evolved to meet the growing demands of the language industry. As the needs expanded, so did the services - translation and interpretation found their place under the roof of Language Power International.

In 2018, a new chapter unfolded as Jean-Pierre's children, Nicholas and Adeline Hermier, joined hands to steer the company towards new horizons. Nicholas, with a Master's in Business Administration from the renowned Norwegian School of Economics (NHH), brings his strategic insights to the table. Adeline, on the other hand, comes from the world of high fashion, having worked with international giants like Acne Studios, Marc Jacobs, A.P.C, and more, bringing her corporate expertise. Their multicultural upbringing, coupled with fluency in Norwegian, French, and English, offers them a unique perspective on languages and integration.
