B.C. (British Centre) is one of the largest and most respected Schools of Foreign Languages in Russia and the CIS which offers job opportunities to language teachers in Russia. B.C. schools pride themselves upon great experience in teaching English. Our language schools are located in Moscow Region (Reutov, Noginsk, Electrostal). These small towns are not as remote as you might think; in fact all of them are within 40km of the Kremlin. They have the advantage of peaceful and homelike surroundings, and while they are considered satellite schools, they are actually quite close to Moscow.

Reviews and impressions from past & current teachers
The British Centre is a wonderful place to work. Just Love it! It's been a year since I'm teaching English and I can say that the working environment is fun and at the same time, challenging! My co-workers are awesome, my bosses are great! The hardest part of the job was to get the children to focus and to be interested in the lessons but, it's also fun to work with children and see their sense of achievement. Joining the British Centre is one of the best decisions and I'm sure any other teacher would love being here. I feel lucky and proud to be part of the centre
After working for British Centre, Reutov, I can say that I have been extremely happy with my experience here. They have been immensely helpful through the entire process from the first day to the last. The visa process, the housing and the big move abroad; they make the whole process easy and smooth. I also enjoyed all of the opportunities you get to travel, socialize and grow with British Centre as a company and it's staff, not only as just co-workers, but as friends as well. The staff are friendly, focused and prepared to assist you at any point not matter what you need. They are ready to listen, adapt and grow with you as you change classes, students and activities. It is indeed a family like atmosphere and they take care of you as if you were not just an employee, but as a preferred client
