It is not clear whether it will be possible to effectively manage a team and develop a product without any prior experience in a non-native language. And what exactly to improve right now to make it work.
Our course is a simulation of the work of a PM in an international team
Defining customer segments and writing JBTD
Within a month, we will practiсe vocabulary and effective communication in a comfortable environment using real product cases. Experienced linguists and international PMs will accompany you on your way — they will give detailed feedback and share frameworks.

You can express your thoughts in English, even though with simple constructions. Level-wise, it’s B1 and above.

Great practicums that help you experience your work in another language. It is very interesting for those who have not had international practice: in the work of a PM, it is very important to convey your idea, so practicums are the best way to prepare for this, both for interviews and for future work.
Everything is cool! Thanks! The final practicum turned out to be easier than it seemed at first. In general, cool experience to use the language in a pseudo-working environment. The feedback on my speech was very useful to me. I knew that there were problems there, but now I know what exactly needs to be fixed and what the scale is.
