Where and how to learn to talk to aircrafts?

Become an air traffic controller is my dream since childhood.
It’s all started when my father took me really young to the Bayserke aerodrome, where I was impressed by the so-called An-2 "crop duster". The “crop duster” lazily was running down the runway and unexpectedly took off the ground - at that moment, I got sick with the sky! My father took my hand and began a fascinating story about how and why aircrafts fly.
But my voracious boyish view got caught on a stand-alone building. It was a tower. When I asked my father if it was possible to go upstairs, he nodded confidently and led me to the tower. At the tower, as a boy, I first met an air traffic controller. Smiling, he explained me, that he regulates airspace. Our dialogue was interrupted by a radio(walkie-talkie),the pilot was reporting his intentions. At that moment, things are back to normal, and I have begun dreaming how to talk to aircrafts.
It has been many years, I have already 2 higher aviation education and 2 years of work. But as is often the way, we forget the dream ...
I'm not the kind seeking easy ways. Throwing everything, I began looking for information on vocational training. I’ve found information on the website of the RSE “Kazaeronavigatsia”. Then I filled out a questionnaire and submitted an application for consideration of my candidacy.
It's been weeks, and they called me, reporting about the next stage, whereupon I was invited for an interview to the capital of our homeland -  Nur-Sultan. And then, after several months, consisting of 8 people, we have begun the initial training of air traffic controllers.
It’s been 3 months, we completed the basic course and have started to the aerodrome course.
My dream came true - thanks to the RSE "Kazaeronavigatsia"!
