Thank you for organizing everything. I know it was not easy because I have been studying by myself for just a few months. You have made a miracle! Natalia is very experienced and intellectual teacher, Julia is excellent and has a lot of energy. I chose this school because it seemed I am in good hands with someone who knows the job.
I definitely recommend my host-family and I hope to stay with them next time I am around. I am really pleased and thankful for quality education, very good value-for-money ratio! Keep up the great work!

Excellent school in the center of the historic city, a dynamic and welcoming team, competent teachers, we enjoyed our two weeks of Russian lessons. 10 of 10! Thanks again to the whole team.

Our teacher created an atmosphere where we talked only in Russian. She adapted to each student’s level. The learning process and the teacher were very cooperative and helpful. She is very experienced and managed to make all participants active in the course.
The other students and class materials were very useful and made the learning far easier and funny. I made a lot of progress and had a good time!

Knowing the school from before and its standards, my expectations were completely met. Big plus also was that during winter time the class only consisted of 3 learners of about the same level.
The personal interaction with the teacher was good and we were challenged daily to achieve progress by digging into difficult grammar,interesting subjects and always conversational opportunities.
My hostfamily was very friendly, open, communicative and warm-hearted. Good atmosphere there! I could talk a lot in Russian, good conversations. Loved it there.
I was here with this school in 2016 and left very content.Should I know anyone interested in Russian courses, I will recommend the school!
I was very happy and content with my stay at Proba. The learning material covered many difficult areas of the Russian language which our teacher Natalia presented in an excellent way to us. We had plenty of opportunities to practise the language in discussions of interesting subjects. Ideal for this was a small group of participants of the same level. The atmosphere was very friendly and supporting. Special thanks to Masha and Oleg. Excursion to Rubinstein street was very interesting as well as the guided tour of Dostoevsky’s house/museum.

The school is not very big and is located in the very center of St. Petersburg. Both of my teachers were highly professional with psychologic skills and interactivity methods.
It is an excellent school with motivated teachers. For older people like me, it was a real experience about the capacity of learning.
