ALMA
Story

ALMA School illustration 04

ALMA School was established back in 2014 by two friends, ALyona and MAria. Both had already taught for a while and came to a conclusion that it was time to create a new space for studying Ukrainian and Russian, a school that would be the opposite of everything that existed at that time in Ukraine and beyond. And up until this day ALMA School strives to be a modern environment where effective teaching methods are combined with excellent customer service, professionalism and a human touch.
