PORTAL IN FIGURES
The PORTAL language space has been working since 2017. It was in 2017 that the first classes at PORTAL took place. Since then, there have been many events that we would like to tell you about.
When our center began to work, our team consisted of 5 people, now there are 14. The number of students is growing and we want to pay more and more attention to everyone, and therefore our team is increasing and now we have not only new mentors, but also a managing staff, which always carefully monitors all processes and is ready to answer any question.
More than 700 students
Our students are our family. We know each student and we are responsible for the result. Everyone inspires us, because the life of students is getting better with new language knowledge. Many of our students have stayed with us from the first year of our work and have achieved heights in studying of several languages. And thanks to the direction of online learning, our students study with us, being not only in Perm, but also in other cities.
Spacious new office
Some of our students remember our first small office, where there were only 2 classrooms. Now our office is a spacious place with five large bright rooms, a coffee waiting area where each student can enjoy coffee or tea before class and a teachers' room.
From the first day of foundation, 5 languages were available, but in the second year of the existence of the language space, we began to teach Russian as a foreign language.
Hey! My name is Nika and I am the founder of the PORTAL Language Space. My whole life has been connected with foreign languages: at the age of 6 I began to study German at a school with in-depth study of German, lived and studied in an exchange in Germany, graduated from the Faculty of Foreign Languages and began teaching while studying at the university. I have always noticed that many have prejudices or difficulties in learning foreign languages: "I understand, but I don't speak"; fear of making a mistake; the idea that learning a language is learning 100 words a day and a volume of grammar a month. In fact, language learning is about more than just vocabulary and grammar rules. The main goal of learning a language is communication with new people, not translation and cramming of texts, right? That is why I created PORTAL - a language space with a unique atmosphere, where everyone, young and old, can discover a new "I" in themselves with each new language. PORTAL mentors will help you break down the language barrier, learn how to turn your thoughts into fluent speech and prove that there are no "disabled" in language learning. Take it step by step and trust your mentor. You will definitely succeed!
MENTOR OF THE GERMAN ANNA FEDOTOVA
I was trained in the course "Linguistics and intercultural communication, German and English" at the Perm Technical University, I also took courses and seminars of the Goethe-Institut for teachers of German. I have been teaching since 2003.
The emphasis in the learning process is immersion in the language environment. To master a foreign language, you need to surround yourself with it and start thinking in it - from the very beginning listen, watch, read a lot and, of course, not be afraid to speak with mistakes. After all, mistakes make us stronger, develop awareness and enable us to move on.

In the learning process, I consider the main thing to teach the student to speak a foreign language!
