"Warm, welcoming and very useful!"

Anna Simitchieva

I really liked the school a lot! The teacher was very open to suggestions. Hasmik, the Head of the school, was excellent in providing information, taking care that everything goes smoothly and in supporting me. It was not only a good learning, but also a great personnel experience, since I had the chance to get to know both also personally, since they took the time to show me around in their free time. I can only recommend the school to others!

Dear Anna, it was our pleasure to have such a bright student and we are looking forward to meeting you again soon.

"Positive experience"

Rubina Zolotuhina

I was visiting Armenia for the first time and before coming learned that I may have English courses there, so I took this chance. I loved NEXT, especially Hasmik. She was very professional and helped me to speak English more freely. Activities organised in the evenings like Armenian folk dances, made my trip unforgettable. Housing was also good but could be closer to the language center as I wanted to walk and not take the bus.
