I took a risk on BKC after a google search returned some very negative reviews; it was the best thing I've ever done. BKC was the perfect place to start my ELT career- the office staff are friendly and supportive, there's loads of (free) training opportunities and tonnes of resources. Socially, I doubt many schools can compare to BKC and its team of over two hundred people. The crash of the rouble means that the wage is much lower in pounds or dollars these days, but it still allows you a very comfortable lifestyle in Moscow. It's almost two years since I left now, but I still miss those days, and am sure I'll return one day.
