Russian orthodoxy, economics), museums and galleries (e.g. the Hermitage), factory visits, shopping tours and excursions to the countryside, suburbs and other cities like Moscow, Novgorod, Pskov.
As a rule, our Study Excursions are in Russian adjusted to the participants’ language level. But we also have the possibility to arrange excursions and lectures in German, French or English. Our excursions are designed as study excursions, when a guide uses “adapted” Russian to help the students not only to get some extra vocabulary knowledge, but also to practice there conversational skills. These excursions are arranged in a way that even a beginner will not waste time and enlarge their Russian vocabulary. Study excursions are the part of the educational program and are usually devoted to different topics covered at the lessons.
Students can look through the weekly program of events and choose what they like best:

These trips help you to discover Russia, to learn of the dialect diversity of the Russian Language and to become more experienced in Russia’s daily life.
The capital of Russia is Moscow. Moscow is one of the biggest and most beautiful cities of Europe with more than 850-years history. “The Heart of
Russia”, that’s how the Russians call the capital, is a unique combination of unforgettable features of an old Russian city and a modern European character. The city is located on seven hills. The Kremlin with its beautiful red walls and famous towers is situated on one of them. The Kremlin is certainly the heart of Moscow.
The “New Town” (as its name means in Russian) of Novgorod is definitely not new: Dating back to the 9th century, this illustrious town, three hours south from St. Petersburg, was once a creative center of the nation. In Imperial days, it was known as Novgorod The Great, and today, it still reveals its grand heritage in its cathedrals, museums, and classic Slavic architecture. Visitors who travel to the city of 190,000 inhabitants are rewarded by its wealth of cultural attractions.

I had the best teacher! I have been so lucky to have Alexandra as my teacher! I cannot find enough positive adjectives to describe her qualification as a teacher. She knew my tempo of learning. She is just outstanding in everything conserning teaching Russian. She is amazing. Her personality is also so lovely. I have learned really much during 2 weeks. I want to come back this year and continue to study the Russian language with her. I started at beginner’s level, so I knew only the letters. After 2 weeks, I left the course with so much knowledge! My host Anastasia was so nice as well! She is always happy and friendly, very social. It was nice to return home in the afternoon after classes, her smile is each time welcoming. Also, the location of the apartment I lived in was convenient: it was near the metro and the school, shops, banks, etc. My best recommendations!

I’ve already been studying the Russian language for several years, so I wanted to find courses that will meet my needs and, luckily, I managed to find what I needed! My teacher, Maria, was very kind and explained the material of the lessons in a very clear and easy way.
