Here, children from all over the world can significantly improve language skills in a short time, as well as pass the AS-level (the first year of the A-level program) in mathematics, economics, and art.

College students have the opportunity to participate in a large number of charitable and volunteer projects (the former can be paid for): this will not only save a little on the cost of training, but also gain valuable practical experience, add an important Item in a personal resume for the admissions committee of universities. In this work, not only communicative and speech qualities develop quickly, but also personal abilities - for example, leadership skills, time management skills, responsibility and compassion.
