    Oksana is an excellent teacher! I've got a lot of valuable skills. I fixed some of my grammar and pronunciation issues. Speaking has become lot more natural for me, and I'm open to going on job interviews. Definitely, Oxana's course is excellent! Strongly advised.

    I really liked the English courses. The content was well structured, interesting and covered a current IT topic. A big thank you to teacher Oksana, who was knowledgeable and supportive, providing valuable feedback that helped me improve my language skills. Overall it was a fantastic learning experience and I now feel more confident in my English language abilities.

    The course has been truly wonderful. I've gained extensive knowledge in technical English, and the interactive nature of the classes, where speaking was encouraged, proved highly beneficial. We had the flexibility to explore additional topics, which was a great advantage. I'd like to express my gratitude to Oxana for being an exceptional teacher and an overall wonderful person. Her efforts to create a comfortable learning environment and gentle guidance were particularly commendable. I was impressed by her patience, sense of humor, and unwavering determination to assist us in every possible way. Oxana not only adeptly prepares students for interviews but, more importantly, equips them to express themselves freely in English. I wholeheartedly recommend taking this course; it provides one of the safest pathways to mastering the English language.

    Dear Oksana! I would like to express my gratitude for the course, for the knowledge you gave us, for your support and motivation. You are an excellent teacher, you understand each person individually, and find an approach to everyone. Thank you very much again.
  5. Margarita MozharovaOctober, 2023

    I'm very glad I enrolled in this course! It suits the SQA course flawlessly: the school’s instructors, who are IT specialists and professional testers, use the whole language we learnt in the English for IT lessons. In addition, I picked up a ton of important grammar. My English level wasn't so low at first. And yet I struggled so much when it came to speaking. At last, I began to speak! I would like to express my gratitude to Oxana; she is really skilled at quickly improving your English!

    I`m grateful to Oxana for a very useful course. It not only focuses on IT and prepares you for the Job Interview but also improves your everyday English speaking skills. Oxana gave me more confidence in expressing myself in English, in communicating with English-speaking people. Therefore, I recommend that course and the wonderful teacher Oxana not only to students studying IT technologies, but also to those who want to raise their English level.
