Training communication in a foreign language as a part of professional competence is the main task, which lies before the Center. Our teachers conduct Master Classes and use the most progressive and effective methods, typical of the communicative approach, widely used in language training:

  1. Multi-level education.
  2. Personality-orientated education
  3. Immersion in the language environment. Classes are conducted only in the target language, audio, video and the Internet recourses are used at every lesson.

The teachers regularly assess the students’ foreign language competence, which includes multiple skills testing: speaking, listening, reading and writing. It is held after the end of each module and is included in the course programme. The final assessment is held at the end of the course and corresponds a specific level.

We offer study groups of 8 to 10 people. Exactly this number of students is appropriate for achieving our goal: acquiring high-level language skills.

The groups are formed on results of a placement test and an oral interview, which test a student’s current language proficiency level. Classes are conducted in the morning and in the evening.

Our Center guarantees all its students high-quality teaching. All you need is your desire and willingness to work hard.

We do all our best to make the educational process entertaining, intensive and diverse. We want to help you learn to speak a foreign language fluently and with this ability, get everyday satisfaction from life.
