Marina Kapshuk  from Moscow

« I started English lessons with Katherine in April 2019, and after 5 months I felt significant progress. The language became clearer, the speed of communication increased and I ceased to be shy to speak, even if I made mistakes. I believe the format that Katherine has chosen for her lessons is optimal for working people, because during a casual conversation you touch on topics that are useful not only for personal growth, but also for business. I am very pleased with my results now and I will definitely continue my classes with Katherine.»

Anton Vologin  from Moscow

« Thanks to Katherine, I’ve made a lot of progress with my speaking over a short period of time. Her dedication, motivation and confidence in students are outstanding and helped me a lot to eliminate my language barrier when speaking with natives.»

Marina Smelyanskaya from Moscow

« Katherine helped me to overcome the language barrier that had been bothering me for a long time. In addition, Katherine is a very pleasant and educated person, so the lessons give me pleasure. I can definitely recommend HLT if you want to improve your language skills! »

Dmitry Privalov  from Moscow

« Katherine prepared me for the BEC Higher exam which I successfully passed. I do appreciate Katherine’s approach to my preparatory course, which also helped me to improve my presentation and negotiation skills. Thank you very much! »

Svetlana Eliseeva  from Moscow

« I have been learning English with HLT for about 5 years and I can say that my communication skills have really improved. Although I have never had any difficulties with writing emails and documents, my spoken English was previously not so fluent. Due to a lack of oral practice in English, it was quite hard for me to take part in small talk with foreigners and speak during conference calls. Thanks to HLT, I now feel more confident in my speaking, since I have learned a lot of new words and expressions used in common and business oral language.»

Alan Nadirov  from Moscow

«Katherine helped me with one of the most common problems in language learning – the fear of speaking a foreign language. Now I seek any conversation to further master my skills
