What do we do?

The PICK learning system aims to boost linguistic, intercultural, and creative competencies, all essential for success in the modern world. We have designed a specialized PICK training program for educators to assist in achieving this objective.

The PICK program is a valuable tool that enhances learning while preserving the existing curriculum. Our program excels as it integrates various methods from psychology, sociology, anthropology, and linguistics to create an incredibly effective didactic system. Our comprehensive approach takes into consideration educational aspects, as well as the psychology of personality and the sociocultural environment of the student.

Creative competence

The program’s primary goal is to develop creative competencies that stem from everyday cognitive processes. While exceptional creative achievements are not ruled out, the main focus is utilizing these abilities to solve day-to-day problems.

Intercultural competence

The program aims to significantly enhance intercultural competence by fostering essential cognitive, emotional, and behavioral traits necessary for effective interaction with individuals from diverse cultures. Through the program, students will acquire an in-depth understanding, appreciation, and practical application of cultural factors that impact how people perceive, assess, feel, and act in intercultural situations. This promotes mutual adaptation, tolerance, and productive cooperation in a highly effective manner.

Linguistic competence

The program employs groundbreaking techniques that facilitate active and systematic language switching. This guarantees an immersive foreign language learning experience while nurturing and enhancing the learner’s native language. Additionally, we provide effective techniques to minimize foreign language anxiety, making our program a top choice for language learners.

Systemic adaptation 

The ultimate goal of the program is students’ systemic adaptation, which allows them to proactively and assertively engage with their surroundings while also encouraging them to assess existing social and psychological conditions, gain a strong understanding of their abilities in those conditions, and adhere unwaveringly to the primary objectives of the endeavor.

Personality traits 

The program is designed to significantly boost students’ internal motivation for learning, openness to new experiences, assertiveness, self-confidence, emotional intelligence, and curiosity.

Skills and abilities 

The primary objective of this program is to significantly enhance language proficiency and communication skills while also targeting goal-setting, attention, creative perception, cultural awareness, and flexibility of thinking.

Why do we do this?

Education in the digital age must equip individuals with the necessary skills to navigate uncertainty and changing planning horizons. However, modern education fails to emphasize change readiness and strategic thinking, reducing the ability to respond effectively to new challenges. Our program focuses on developing three critical soft skills to minimize resistance to change and promote timely systemic adaptation. You should join our program to ensure you are prepared for the ever-evolving landscape of the modern world.

How do we do this?

The uniqueness and significance of the PICK program constitute a unified instructional model that effectively ignites creative potential, enhances foreign language acquisition, and develops intercultural competence seamlessly and methodically. By developing these soft skills, students become better equipped to adapt to the demands of the modern world. This includes acquiring new traits and developing new abilities and skills that help them thrive in various situations.



Our major concepts

Consistency and integrity

The PICK program effectively ensures consistency and integrity by seamlessly connecting all its components. It confidently promotes daily engagement in creativity, foreign language study, and intercultural competence, utilizing various cognitive, individual, and sociocultural factors to holistically develop each student.

Sociо-pedagogical partnership

Collaboration among students, parents, teachers, and administrators is the key to successful socio-pedagogical partnerships. This partnership is founded on trust, shared goals and values, and mutual responsibility for educational development.


Valuing the opinions of all participants in education is crucial to boosting self-confidence and involvement. It is essential to acknowledge that individual differences make these principles achievable. The PICK program does an outstanding job involving as many students as possible in tasks and recognizing their unique traits and interests.


Engaging in two-way conversations with peers and teachers is crucial for PICK program students. This promotes active interaction and communication skill development while also serving as a preventative measure against school bullying. It is imperative to foster a positive environment; this approach is a critical factor in achieving that goal.


Implementing the personification principle to boost emotional intelligence among students is imperative. This principle effectively tackles their emotions and experiences, leading to a notable decrease in adverse reactions during social interactions.


Students must possess the skills to identify and generate their educational assignments, conduct comprehensive research, and work autonomously to thrive in the classroom. These abilities are fundamental in fostering a sense of motivation and personal accountability.

Action-oriented learning

The practical application of knowledge is given the utmost priority in every lesson of the PICK program.

What are the techniques in the PICK program?

  • The PICK training program is very flexible. Some of the methods are specific associative, metaphorical, dialogical, project, and game-like techniques adapted to a specific academic subject.
  • Some of the techniques are psychological and didactic methods of successful communication between a teacher and a student. The teacher independently decides when and what strategies should be used. We do not emphasize mastering a specific learning tool; instead, we focus on the general outline of educational activities.
  • The main methods and techniques used by the teacher during the educational process are mixed learning technologies, code-switching methods, brainstorming techniques, psycholinguistic games, associative techniques, metaphorical games, and role-playing games. Special emphasis is placed on establishing a favorable psychological climate and developing students’ emotional intelligence during the lesson. Therefore, we use methods of developing dialogue, active listening, relaxation techniques, meditation, and visualization. As a leitmotiv of the training, we use a project-oriented approach in teaching.

How do we support teachers during implementation?

We provide methodological and psychological support during the implementation of the PICK program.

  • Online chats with PICK curators to share experiences and solve current issues.
  • Bimonthly online/offline supervisory support groups for a detailed implementation analysis.
  • Bimonthly thematic webinars and masterclasses from PICK system experts aiming to deepen theoretical and methodological analysis and practical improvement of specific techniques.
  • Webinars, masterclasses, and handouts about the PICK program for parents, teachers, and school administrators to facilitate harmonious social and pedagogical partnerships.

How is training for teachers organized?

The training program comprises three modules that aim to provide teachers with the necessary theoretical and methodological groundwork of the PICK program. It also trains them in plurilingual, intercultural, and creative teaching techniques. It allows them to put various didactic methodologies into practice. The training is conducted every six months, a week before the start of the academic semester. After the training, teachers implement the learned methods in their work with students.

The training algorithm for each module

c) Relaxation. Relieving muscle and emotional tension.

d) Reflection. Feedback about the current state of mind, the work done, and expectations from further work.

2. Homework: Prepare a lesson presentation on a selected subject using mastered techniques to independently plan the implementation of PICK techniques in the actual learning process.

3. Project defense: presentation of a prepared lesson, general summary of the module, and a survey of participants.

A teacher receives a training certificate for each completed training module. Teachers who have completed all 3 training modules can sign up for the PICK coaching course to obtain a certificate for conducting PICK training.
