Our local teachers are experts in helping beginners get to conversational level fairly quickly. Although Russian is most useful in Bishkek, if you want to travel beyond the city limits a basic knowledge of Kyrgyz is useful unless you are with a guide.
Bishkek is surrounded by mountains and the school regularly arranges excursions for teachers. The mountains begin at the edge of town, so there are endless opportunities for skiing, hiking and travelling.The opportunities to travel within Kyrgyzstan are boundless and particularly rewarding for hikers and nature lovers.

Applicants should have at least one year of prior teaching experience, although applications from newly-qualified teachers may also be considered.
