Speak Up is a modern network of English language schools. We operate schools in 7 countries - Poland, Russia, Ukraine, Vietnam, Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, Saudi Arabia Egypt and USA. We continue to grow, we plan to open several new schools this year. Speak Up is an innovative and profitable business. We are ready to share our success with franchise partners.
Speak Up uses a management system which allows every single student to have his/her own learning schedule. They can book any classes that suit their free time and cancel it when busy and receive a make-up later. This means for busy working adults they will not miss any lessons which affect the training quality. Also they can learn English at anytime, anywhere all over the world as long as there is internet connection for multimedia lessons (MML).
And because the MML helps students gain more knowledge about the language/structure/pronunciation etc. they have more chance to practice English in teacher led classes. “Practice makes perfect”. That’s why Speak Up students have been very happy with the method for over the past 15 years and makes this unique method become the most successful in Europe. We will have 50-50 foreign - Myanmar teachers: the higher level the more ratio of foreign teacher will be allocated. Moreover, there is a quite good sales and marketing process having been developed for over 15 years and finally we are trained to do it.
