Hello My future colleagues! My name is Mathew Whitford and I have been a proud employee of Language Link Korolyov for about 3 years. In that time I can confidently say that my teaching job with Language Link Korolyov has been one of the most exciting times of my life. I look forward to working with you.
Language Link offers a variety of products and services using its unique communicative teaching method, which focuses on strengthening the student’s ability to interact with others in everyday situations. On top of that, our company is a licensed administrator of Cambridge exams such as First Certificate and the Starters, Movers, and Flyers series of exams.
25 years ago, Rob Jensky and his team founded this company in the difficult business environment of Russia in the 1990s. Thanks to their tireless effort this company has flourished and become a stand-out leader in the crowded market of EFL teaching in Russia. The company has founded new centers as far-flung as Saratov and Volgograd and its logo has become an unmistakable mark of quality for those unsure where to turn.
Teaching is 30 academic hours per week, Monday to Friday. Usually, teaching is at the school from 3.50 p.m. to 8.50 p.m. with breaks in between the lessons and each teacher has five groups (maximum 12 students in a group). The levels range from beginner to upper-intermediate. However, some teachers may teach in-company clients, individual students or exam preparation classes (Cambridge First Certificate or Cambridge Advanced). As well as this, some teaching is done in a local school with young learners.
The students are very friendly, keen to learn English, kind and generous. Their ages range from 5 years old to adult. They are also very hospitable so do not be surprised, if some of the older students invite you for a drink or to their home for dinner.
In Korolev you can get the best of both worlds, Moscow and everything there is there, plus all the benefits of living in a smaller, quieter suburb.
