They say, “knowledge is power”, and if it’s knowledge of English when you’re abroad, it’s your superpower. It helps to settle down, integrate, and feel more confident.

A world map is spread out in front of Ukrainians: dozens of countries are ready to provide shelter. However, no matter where the road leads: Warsaw, Berlin, or Vilnius — at least a basic knowledge of English as an international language of communication helps to arrange life.

Ukrainians abroad are not typical refugees. These are people who are ready to learn, to actively integrate into society, and therefore to communicate. That is why we decide to launch a full-fledged online school in Europe. And to do it qualitatively, we conducted research.

iKnow in Poland welcomes its first students. Ahead is a large-scale digital image campaign to make a statement and increase market share. We keep going.
