Our teaching philosophy

  • At English College, we believe that communication skills and fluency in languages are the foundation of success in almost every area of life. They give us great opportunities for personal and professional development, open the doors to the world and allow us to realize our goals and dreams. Therefore we put a lot of emphasis on practical aspects of our language courses.
  • For us quality language education starts with good relationship between the teacher and the students, and  develops effectively through interesting and engaging lessons, full of interactive and well-prepared activities carried out in positive atmosphere and mutual respect.
  • We also believe that a good teacher is a kind of facilitator who helps their students achieve their life goals. Someone who is a friend, a guide, a mentor, someone who the students will always look up to.
