Natalia Yavorska is our client and founder of the SHERWOOD International Language Academy. It is an Official Certified School for International Language Exam Preparation. SHERWOOD has over 15,000 alumni and 44 serviced businesses. Natalia told how the academy became the largest language center and went online.
In 2007, I founded an English language school in Donetsk, where state and private companies taught. Soon we received the title of an official partner in preparation for the Cambridge exams and became a member of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
In 2013, I closed my business in Donetsk and moved to Dnipro. There we established relations with the mayor's office, also became members of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry and received an order for a training program for retirees. I have developed a crash course in English, German, Polish for seniors.
SINCE THE PAST YEAR, THE STUDY AT THE ACADEMY FULLY PASSED ONLINE
We teach all major European and Eastern languages. You can choose a suitable course with us. This could be:
• general conversation course;
• foreign for business;
• specialized courses (IT, industrial, medical, etc.).
With the onset of the pandemic, we completely switched to Skype and experienced a number of advantages of online education:
• the perception of a foreign speech occurs exclusively by ear, therefore, its understanding is actively trained;
• daily spoken language is trained in a comfortable home environment, so that students can psychologically relax and fully "open up";
• students receive all the most modern interactive materials - the learning process becomes more interesting.
At SHERWOOD our students:
after the first lesson, they can talk about a household topic
quickly get rid of the language barrier in communicating with foreigners
learn easy ways to memorize new words
learn to speak grammatically and beautifully
develop memory and quick thinking
learn from strong specialists who make a lesson of any difficulty level interesting.
WHEN WE OPENED SHERWOOD, PEOPLE COME TO US WITH ZERO KNOWLEDGE OF ENGLISH
Now, 10 years later, the trend is such that all students who come to us already have at least an initial level of knowledge of the language. Programmers come mainly with an Intermediate level, and university teachers - with a level not lower than Upper Intermediate.
In addition to language courses, we provide full support for moving abroad and preparation for admission to an international university. My partner deals with all organizational issues related to the move, and I prepare for an interview at the embassy. We cooperate with international recruiting agencies and employing companies that provide employment for our graduates.
We also provide services as a translation agency.
We registered the trademark when we learned that courses began to appear in other cities under our name. People know SHERWOOD is quality training, so we had to protect our brand
