TTC is a private English language school that has been operating since 2005. We teach all levels from beginner to advanced, as well as TOEFL and business English and writing. Furthermore, we have a public library with 1400 licensed films in English.
We are happy that you have chosen to consider The Teachers' Cooperative (TTC) for your English language training needs. The school, as its name suggests, tries to elevate the interests of the students by simultaneously promoting those of the teachers. By this, we mean that the teachers are stimulated into pushing themselves to work harder and to continuously improve themselves for the benefit of the students, as each teacher has a vested interest in the school since a teacher's compensation is dependent upon his/her ability to retain students. As you might guess from this, our teachers tend to be better paid. This system is possible because the owners of the school are themselves teachers at the school, and have an understanding of the classroom environment that no administrator or absentee owner could ever possess.
Additionally, the owner-operator aspect of the business permits us to charge lower tuition fees for the same (if not better) level of service as one finds in more expensive language schools. We do this also to promote the interests of the middle-class in their nascent development here within Kazakhstan's emerging economy. Historically, the middle-class has been the most stable of the economic brackets, with its members having an eager desire to work their way up, and a belief that this can be done. We are not social or political scientists, but recognize that such a target market coincides with our desire for stable and sustainable growth.
The school also enhances its classes through the use of business English, gradually becoming more prevalent at the higher levels. Though at times a student might feel he/she is in a business or economics class, the system is designed to provide the student with a practical focus. The core of each program, however, is grammar, and its application. As well, we offer TOEFL and IELTS classes, and utilize materials from other disciplines in custom-tailored classes and English clubs.
Should you have any questions regarding our programs, please do not hesitate to contact us. We invite you to come for a free assessment of your current level in English, as well as a trial lesson. We want to ensure that there is a comfortable fit between the student and teacher, so feel free to sit in on trial lessons with different teachers.
Potential Corporate Clients:
The Teachers' Cooperative (TTC) would like to help you improve the competitiveness of your business through English language training. By sending staff to study English, your enterprise will be able to communicate more easily with international suppliers and customers, as well as enjoying overall cost savings by lessening dependence on translators and translation services. In addition, training has been proven to be an effective motivator, and is considered an excellent method for rewarding employee loyalty.
All of our teachers are trained professionals with years of experience (teaching, translation, editing) and higher education degrees from accredited universities. We invite you to send a representative to sit in one of our classes. Our school may be young, but we desire to achieve a key position in the market for language education in the Republic of Kazakhstan.
Outside students enjoy the same privileges as those who study at the school, including the right to attend English clubs and to become members of our library.
With the growing trade and cultural ties between Kazakhstan and the world, the time has come to further consider the English language skills of your staff.
Additionally, we would like to participate in any open or closed tenders for provision of corporate language services.
