Hi, I’m Kostia! I’m passionate about languages and effective methods of language learning .

I have mathematical thinking and learning a new language is a hard process for me. That’s why it’s very important for me to use methods that give results.

I’ve decided to start making online courses where I can share my knowledge with you, so you can apply them and learn languages faster and more effectively.

The hardest skill in language learning for me is listening. It took me a long time to figure out the best methods to develop this skill. So, my first course is all about breaking down listening barrier in English.

I constantly continue to find out new methods and test them on myself for further courses. For example, I want to learn German from scratch less than in a year using an absolutely new approach. If the experiment will be successful, a new course about this approach, that you can apply to any language, appears.

Also, I want to thank my wife Daria and our friend Aliona who are professional teachers of English. I’m very grateful to them for the help that they have provided me in this course creation. They've put a great contribution to the creation of the course to make it more powerful and effective.

Hello!

My name is Dasha. I have been an English and German teacher for over 6 years now. Learning and teaching foreign languages is my passion for life. In 2012 I graduated from university with a Bachelor’s degree in English and German languages. Some years after I passed the Cambridge TKT exams with the highest bands which prove my EFL (English as a foreign language) teaching knowledge.

Over the years, I have been polishing my teaching methods so that they give results quickly and efficiently. And now I’m glad to share them with you through my online courses.


I’m looking forward to seeing your success in learning English.
