About my business

Hi! My name is Aranka Bárócz and I am an entrepreneur, a freedom speaker and English language lover. I truly believe that we are here on this planet to manifest happiness and to explore the world through which we all can grow. At a very young age I already have understood that speaking foreign languages gives us freedom to travel, to communicate, to read, to make friends, to work anywhere in the world, to explore and so many other opportunities.

The point of my business is to show students aged between 6 -19 that the ability of knowing or learning a foreign language in our case English can give them wings and can bring them many wonderful opportunities. Not to mention that they can always combine learning with fun. 

Knowing English language allows you to broaden your world starting with the ability to communicate with people from each country to job opportunities, or it can even make your trips more interesting – as you will be able to understand much more about what’s around you. 

Simply put, we must recognize that English is an international language, I would say that it is the main language of this planet. Then why not know it? Or know it better? Education and self-development are very important in order to widen your knowledge. It doesn’t just make our lives more fascinating and meaningful it improves the quality of it as well. 

Just think about our slogan – English without borders  – what truth does this sentence tell You?
