Testimonials and Reviews

I finally beat my “fear of speaking” 

Loved the course programm and especially the amount of speaking practice. Everyone had a chance to speak a lot during classes, and I finally started losing my “fear of speaking”. Now, I’m excited to speak English in the workplace.

Tatyana Yats

It never gets boring! 

The classes were very interesting with lots of activities to practice different skills (writing, speaking, grammar). The gradually increasing difficulty keeps you motivated so the course never gets boring. 
I highly recommend both English for IT: Starter and English For Tech to all tech professionals looking to boost their English. 

Maxim Rudenko

The course was totally worth the money!

After the course I became more fluent and confident enough to communicate with colleagues from the US. It was impressive that teachers were tech professionals themselves and could share practical examples and situations from real business. Fantastic course! Highly recommend it!

Vika Pivovar

Already putting my knowledge into practice

I’m already using the knowledge I got from the course in my professional life. I now communicate with more confidence and can understand my colleagues and clients a lot better. 
Special thanks to the course creators for the expertly designed program with lots of useful practical examples.
