Description of the franchise for the English language studio Friendly English
Educational services are a steadily growing market, and learning foreign languages - especially!
Today, English language proficiency is an essential skill for a modern successful person.
But for the most part, public schools are not ready to provide the necessary level of preparation:
- English lessons at school are learning the language in large groups, without any hint of an individual approach;
- an illogical program, the main goal of which is to cover as many topics as possible in a year. With this approach, the quality of knowledge is secondary;
- there is a problem with motivation, especially in those classes, where there is no division according to the level of language proficiency.
All this contributes to the development of private educational business, your own language studio is an investment in your successful future and in the future of our children!

History of success
The founder of the network of English language studios is Alexander Kovshov in the studio of the Modny Boulevard business center in Belgorod.
The idea of creating a large network of language studios came to me as a student. I would even call it a cry from the heart, a logical answer to what I, being a young student of the Faculty of Foreign Languages, saw in a regular high school. And there were those sad, dull eyes of children, who by the middle of the second grade had lost all desire to learn English.
However, in the class, which I was lucky enough to supervise, there were a few guys for whom learning was easy and joyful. As it turned out, they all studied the language additionally. Then I got the idea to create a place where learning the language would be simple, interesting and, most importantly, accessible, so that every parent could give their child such an opportunity. From that moment the history of Friendly English began.
The first studio was opened absolutely free of charge - together with my wife we rented the premises of the former children's club for a percentage from turnover, and attracted clients through personal messages in social networks. Now, of course, such methods no longer work, but at that moment we managed to collect the first 2 groups. After working for a year and gaining experience, I issued a credit card with a limit of $1,350 and invested in additional furniture, minor cosmetic repairs and the first advertising campaign. And after only 2 months, paid off all debts and opened another studio in the very center of the city.
Today, Friendly English is a unique business management system, where costs are minimized, and efficiency comes first. In addition, this is a super customer-oriented service, not in words, but in deeds, which is confirmed even by anonymous customer surveys that we conduct regularly. And of course, Friendly English is a methodology that takes into account everything - the age, level, even the temperament of the student! Our goal is not to pass 5 topics in a month and not to prepare the child for passing some kind of test. Our task has always been and will be one - to TEACH. High quality, affordable and as comfortable as possible.
We invite for cooperation - active, ambitious and positive partners with a desire to develop and change the future today!
