From an early age, children are forced to treat English, the ultimate international language, as some learning routine just like other school subjects, while, in reality, it is a superpower that can easily be used to change the world. What they lack is an understanding of how much value their ideas could have to the world and of what they can use the language for.

We assist our students in finding answers to these questions, that would be uniquely relevant to them and their dreams. We help them overcome the oldest and greatest communicational barriers humans have.
Why don't kids want to learn English?
Superpower #1:

The value of their native language and culture in the process of organizing international projects and research

Superpower #2:

Effective use of modern technology in international partnerships

Superpower #3:

Using the English language as means of realizing cooperative international projects and of properly presenting them

By the end of the course, they will acquire the 4th Superpower – that of international friendship and having likeminded peers abroad, their first foreign partners

We offer a course of remote international partnership that will assist our students in learning to look for and develop ideas for international business projects, as well as help them the skills necessary for effectively working with international partners via online platforms. By the end of the course, the students will have developed their very own international startup models.

It may all sound difficult, but that is not necessarily so.

What an international startup is supposed to be, is a unique business idea intended for scaling, meaning, the only difficulties that might arise are related to finding such an idea and the means for marketing and distribution. Every country has its own specificities when it comes to realizing startups, and therefore in the teams we set up for the course we will teach some to come up with ideas and test their relevance, and others to look for the most efficient ways of ensuring the idea is heard and receives attention.

Throughout our course you will learn to analyze markets, develop business-models of international projects, communicate in an international team and test your ideas with your real international target market. All of that, while living the unforgettable experience of working in an atmosphere of healthy competition and cultural awareness with your peers from different countries.

With this experience and these skills, you will undoubtedly not only be relevant in todays world, but take a step ahead of the curve too.

Today's teenagers are ones born in a world has been desperately calling for solutions to long-known problems: leaving behind the age of warfare, advancing in the medical and scientific fields, preserving the world's nature, and so on and on. Most teenagers engage into this seeking of solutions one way or another, and they do so not necessarily for the sake of the world, but rather for the sake of maintaining its rationality, maintaining a range of relevant reasons to be alive.

This generation has grown up with access to the Internet. They know all too well that their predecessors have no valid far-sighted plan for saving the world and ensuring that humanity prospers and develops. They are not as attached to political ideologies and would rather follow a figure like Elon Musk than a veteran ideologist from a governmental structure, and there is no mystery as to why.

The world has changed since those had been relevant. Economy no longer must rely on wars to be stable, but ecological issues have come to pose a much greater threat than they used to. Now it is obvious that the world lacks not resources needed for perfecting itself, but rather a comprehensive plan for their allocation.

We wish to unite the teenagers with novel ways of thinking from all across the world over pragmatic aims: the development of international partnerships and establishment of new businesses. They will engage in discussions with us, that will revolve around the most pressing problems humanity is facing, while solving real-life business cases and acquiring the skills and knowledge they need to be relevant in the 21st century.

The course consists of:
Students from 2 different countries meet to complete a common international quest. The students split into teams of 2 to 3 people in Zoom Breakout Rooms, and each team receives an assignment formulated in the two different native languages of the members, which no one member can complete alone.

Only by using superpowers they possess as knowledge of their native languages and English, can the kids fulfill the quest

Cooperating to conduct research and completing international tasks as partners, the students will be asked to prepare an international project in English by the end of the course, that would be relevant to the 2 countries the students are natives of. The international project could be a creative gig, presentation, or a kind of a short film, that would suggest and consider what partnership prospects the countries in question and their cultures possess.

Friend and families of the students will have an opportunity of joining the Zoom to support the students at their final defense of the projects and of experiencing the atmosphere of international cooperation for themselves.

In the beginning of each week of the course the students attend a preparatory class, where they are taught new words and phrases in English, as well as the cultural of the country their partners are from. They will need the latter for completing further team assignments.

The preparatory classes are held in English together with the native language of the students, as to make their adaptation and learning process gradual.

PROGRAM
OF THE COURSE
Class 1: Making Acquaintance
  1. Warm-up assignment: find out what the students know about each other's countries of origin (stereotypes, etc.)
  2. Separate session rooms (international groups): their task is to think of and voice differences between their homelands and then collect these differences into a set of points to present to other groups.
  3. The kids are to go back to the general meeting room in Zoom and talk about each other and their findings (while we simultaneously prepare a quiz that uses what they talk about as topics for questions).
  4. Everyone is to be engaged in a brief game of associations while the quiz is being made.
  5. The quiz tests how well students had listened to each other.
    Class 2: Spain (or another first country)
    1. Separate session rooms: The kids from Spain are given texts in Spanish, from which they are to read different facts about Spain (each team gets a text of its own). Next, the Spanish kids are to try to explain these facts to their Russian teammates in Spanish, using pantomime, images and whatever else (apart from English or Russian) to make the Russian kids understand these same facts over a tight timeframe.
    2. Everyone returns to the general meeting room and the kids are to engage in a multiple-choice and T/F questions Q&A session over the information from the texts.
    3. The end goal for the class is for everyone to know about what schools in Spain are like by the end of the meeting, what leisure and hobbies are popular among Spanish kids and what kinds of music they listen to.
    4. One of the tasks, for example, will include watching an MV in Spanish and then answer questions about what the song's lyrics meant.
    5. Feedback session.

    Class 3: Russia (or another second country)
    Basically, the same thing as class 2 but in Russian rather than Spanish.
    Class 4: Class dedicated to making Instagram stories
    1. The kids will be informed in English how to make a dynamic and effective video.
    2. The kids are then divided into teams, pick the topics they had liked most from the previous classes, gather info and work in teams to create videos about some similarity or difference between the countries discussed that they had found peculiar.
    3. The students are to show their videos to the mentors and the mentors are to then assist the teams in writing scripts (the whole next week is to be dedicated to making brief videos as projects for defense).
    4. Feedback session.
      Class 5: Project defense to mentors and parents.
      1. Each team is to present their project to the parents and other teams.
      2. Midst presentations, everyone including the parents is to engage in an "interactive part" of the class. Likely, a game revolving around what the students' parents like to do as hobbies or leisure (a quiz will simultaneously be prepared using whatever is said about the kids' parents).
      3. The kids and parents (if they speak English) are to give feedback on the presentations.
      4. The quiz tests how well the students had listened during the "interactive" engagement.
      5. Final feedback session, invitation to the next course.
