Our guest-students are ensured of maximum integration with Russian people, Russian customs and the Russian way of life. We offer you the opportunity both to study and to use the Russian language in its country of origin and to become part of it and sensitive to a multi-cultural, multi-national experience.
Moscow offers a variety of entertainments including traditional Russian restaurants, pavement cafes, fun parks, fairs, live music, cinema, theatre, disco and many other things.
All our teachers are native speakers of Russian and are specially trained in the teaching of Russian as a foreign language. They are responsible for the selection of the teaching materials used in class and are constantly researching and developing new materials incorporating computer assisted learning and audio-visual aids.
