Communicative teaching in small groups (maximum 10 students per group) makes this course a pleasurable and productive experience. This course of 20 weekly lessons is offered year round and follows a modular pattern of two-week units.
For participants staying four weeks or longer, following modules build upon the grammar basics of the first module, treating the same topics from a different angle with more in-depth explanations, more complex vocabulary, different exercises and more dialogues.
Standard Group Courses are available for the first six levels year-round. Beginners may start on the dates indicated with a star (*) in our price list and are advised to be familiar with the Cyrillic alphabet .
All our teachers are native speakers and hold a university degree either in Teaching Russian as a Foreign Language (RKI) or Linguistics. We encourage our teachers to learn new languages, because we believe that having this experience as students is a valuable source for further improvement of their professional skills.
We combine intensive studies with a wide range of excursions and other cultural and social activities year round to give our students an opportunity to acquaint themselves with the magnificent cities of St.Petersburg or Moscow and – no less important – with the way of life in Russia. Some activities are free, such as the city tour for new students and our Friday cocktail. Other activities are sold at reasonable rates. The current cultural program for both schools is available at the reception and is given to every new student.
At our school in St.Petersburg foreign students can meet Russians who study English, German, French, Spanish and Finnish. The school in St. Petersburg also organizes several extremely popular joint events (for instance, boat trips) for our Russian and foreign students to encourage their language and cultural exchange.
* Home-stay (host family) accommodation: providing the best opportunity to get to know the Russian way of life and offering the best possible language practice. Home-stay always includes half board (full board on weekends).
* Shared flats offer an independent lifestyle at very affordable prices. This is a popular option for young people and university students. Shared flats are self catering.
* Studio apartments offer higher standards than shared flats and guarantee full privacy and independence. Studios are on request only. Our accommodation officer will help to find an appropriate apartment either in St.Petersburg or Moscow.
* Hotels or all categories can be booked directly with the school. While hotel rates in Moscow are quite high year round, St. Petersburg offers good deals - particularly in the mini-hotel sector. Hotels can also be booked without course. This is not possible for other accommodation options.
Tuition, assessment test, teaching materials, course certificate, guided city-tour, free access to the Internet.
Enrollment fee includes course inscription and Russian visa registration costs (all Russian visas must be registered within 3 days upon arrival in Russia).
