Except for the regular programs, we organise special crash courses. The crash courses differ from the regular program, because in addition to the lessons in class, there is a special practice-part included and in summer these courses also comprehend excursions.
For a maximum result, it is not always good just to increase the number of lessons. It is our experience that after 4 to 6 hours of tuition the concentration and absorp level decrease. Of course, every student is different. The crash course's objective is to find a balance between active and passive learning of the language. In this program, so called "practice lessons" are included. During a practice lesson a course participant goes for a walk with a Russian student. The goal is to practice as much as possible the Russian language, that is speaking and listening.
The individual approach provides all opportunities to learn the language in the desired speed and at the individual starting level. Due to the intensiveness of this course, a lot of progress can be booked (especially if the student is disciplined to use the evening hours for one or two hours of homework!). The practice part of the course will let you pick up the sounds of the language. The individual crash course is given three times per year, of which 2 times during the main Russian holidays.
The May course provides the possibility to celebrate the "Victory Day" (9th of May), including the military and veterans parades! The Christmas Course gives the opportunity to celebrate Christmas twice (on 25th of December and the Orthodox Christmas at January 7th). New Year, also in this period, is the most important holiday of the year.
We have 4 carefully selected and closely guided teachers of "Russian as a foreign Language". All our teachers have a special RKI-certificate and are fluent in English.
Additional to the course program, we organize:
- Practice lessons (in which you go walk around with a Russian student through the city, goal: to speak and listen as much Russian as possible).
- Excursions (we have two licensed city guides who can tell you everything about the beautiful city Saint Petersburg).
Lessons are given at the same facility as where are the bedrooms for the participants. So no long travel times to your classes! In this accommodation there is free WiFi internet access, a shared kitchen, free use of washing machine.
- Invitation for the visa,
- Transfers from/to the airport or railway station.
