Our School is a young, licensed language school based in Moscow, Russia. It is our core belief that a language is most effectively acquired when done so naturally - through communication and interaction in everyday situations.
Beyond the Language
We aim to make a difference and build a better world by opening the world both for kids from low-income families and for candidates who wish to discover the world.
Nowadays, knowing English opens doors to more information, better education, career opportunities and the growth of one's own business or organization. It is our aim to reach out to those kids whose families may not be able to afford private English instruction with teachers from the US, UK and other English speaking countries.
We provide a wide range of opportunities for our teachers - from discovering the world and different cultures and languages with us to meeting financial goals like paying off student loans or saving for the next adventure.
Your contribution today is making your own future brighter and is laying a solid foundation for a better world for many people to come.
We are looking for candidates in the USA and around the world to join our growing team of teachers in Russia. We are involved in group teaching, one-on-one teaching, camps for children, classes for adults and much more. We welcome all enthusiastic individuals to come teach their native language and explore the rich experiences Russia has to offer.
We invite native English speakers to come to Russia and share their gifts, talents and knowledge with Russian people who want to learn English, to add to their education, increase job opportunities and travel the world. This, in turn, enriches the lives of others with whom our students come in contact.
