You can only learn what you love… This love began more than twenty years ago and has continued to this day. Despite the fact that my first education was technical - a red diploma from the Russian University of Transport (MIIT), my love for languages began in a postgraduate school where it was necessary for me to pass a language entrance exam. After this I found myself doing a wide range of language work, such as helping with the arrival of volunteer groups from different countries, communication with native speakers, trips to more than 30 countries of the world, obtaining a specialized education in Washington D.C., to receive my a doctorate, working in Kazakhstan, and then in Russia. I began to teach English relatively recently, about a year ago. Being a perfectionist, I like to see the results of my work, and therefore I am happy when I see the progress of my students, feeling deep sense of satisfaction. On the other hand, I'm learning to rejoice in the process. My task is not just to teach the language, but also includes my ability to communicate with it - to talk, to write and to think. After all, language is primarily a means of communication. In addition, knowledge of English not only opens up the whole world, but it also gives you confidence and freedom when you are abroad. Also, I want to mention here the added bonus of the huge library of world literature written in English. This is what I know from my own experience and this is what I would like to convey to my students.
