English Connection

At Eclectic, we often get asked if we teach English: we’re native speakers of English; perhaps we can provide classes that are fun and relevant to our clients’ personal needs? Or can we recommend someone? We don’t teach English. And until now, we haven’t been able to recommend anyone… recently, however, we partnered with an English school – English Connection! We identify with their approach, and recommend them to you with full confidence.

 

English Connection is an English language centre in St Petersburg that enables you to develop your international social networks, both professional and private. They are constantly developing how they teach and have developed their own teaching technique: the E.A.T. Principle (Establish Basic Logic and Structure, Automate, Test Instincts). This technique builds and develops your natural responses and instincts in a foreign language using relevant and interesting teaching material.

 

English Connection offers courses for children, adults and for business, all of which are tailored to meet your goals, your needs and your deadlines. They will help you speak English accurately and confidently.
