Preparing for IELTS

The preparatory course will help you to pass the IELTS international exam to a high score, to continue studying abroad, to issue a long-term visa, to apply for a position in an international company.

Students comprehensively develop all the basic language skills, so that no examination block causes them difficulties (here the course is in many respects similar to an intensive version of General English). The advantage of this program is a full familiarity with the structure and the scheme of the exam, with its test tasks: the materials of past years are actively used. This helps students to reduce fear and stress before testing, to note the most difficult and incomprehensible stages for themselves, to identify their strengths and weaknesses. In the process of pre-examination studying, students will be able to more competently allocate teaching time in order to give the most difficult moments and topics a maximum of time and effort.

Business English

The profile course is designed for those students who are planning employment in an international company, want to significantly increase their competitive opportunities in the world labour market.

In addition to improving the overall language level, students (classes are held in small groups) practice the skills typical of the business environment:

Preparation for the Cambridge ESOL Preparation

Cambridge exams (the level of FCE, CAE and CPE) are considered to be one of the most difficult - that is why preparation for them is better to conduct not in Russia, but in the country with native speakers.

Qualified teachers will help you to develop all the basic language skills and knowledge, and testing will reduce the level of stress and help to overcome the emotional barrier before the exam. In carrying out trial assignments (similar to this exam), students will be able to get to know their structure and features, to identify their strengths and weaknesses, possible gaps in knowledge - and  to focus on filling them.
