Language enthusiasts and enthusiasts of technology, innovation, continuous development. Every day we experience how effective activity-based and play-based education is – no matter the age of the student.
Better Academy was founded in 2013 as a school unlike any other – and it remains so today.
I founded Better Academy because I had a need to create a place that teaches how to learn so that you are still hungry for knowledge and skills. All this in English, hence our motto: English and Skills.
This approach was taught to me by my experience of working for many years in a large corporation. Knowledge of a foreign language without practical skills and passion is not enough to find your way in the modern world.
That’s why at Better Academy we teach practical knowledge.
I encourage you to learn more about our teaching methods and principles and our team of exceptional teachers.
See you at Better Academy!
