Certificates and certifications
Do you provide an end-of-course certificate? Is it valid as a language proficiency certification?
We do issue an end-of-course certificate. This is a certificate of attendance, though. It is not an official certification of language proficiency. However, you can take the Oxford Test to obtain such a certification: our school is an Oxford approved test centre.

Do you organise stays abroad for young students? And for adults?
Yes, for both, partnering with world-renowned colleges.

Prices may vary according to the course length and the number of participants.
