PROSPECT review, Nederlands: “Very interesting lessons, good variation between the different aspects of the Russian Language, nice and friendly atmosphere. Fine accommodation and great city. Helpful people. Efficiency at all times in responding to queries. Excellent communication. Being accompanied to school – being met at the airport on the previuos day – this all helps to give students a sense of security and also assurance that ProBa really cares.”
TRANSTIONS ABROAD, USA: “The ProBa Centre offers large choice of programs for everyone: Individual and Group courses for foreigners year round, Semester in Russia, Study & Work and Volunteer programs…”
VOSTOTSCHNAJA, Switzerland: “Changing the way of life is not always easy and painless but always challenging and troublesome. Imagine, you should leave your cosy and warm place and move somewhere to start your life from the very beginning. May be its not for everyone, but may be everyone should try it at least once in his life. We could assist you to make the proper choice. Join the Russian Project Volunteers’ Service, which is now available in St.Petersburg, Russia, thanks to the ProBa International Language Centre, and may be you’ll find what you need and want.”
I progressed a lot. My teacher Maria provided very interesting lessons. I had a very great time! I really recommend this school to anyone who wants to learn Russian while enjoying the beautiful city of Saint-Petersburg.

This was the experience of a lifetime. All the teachers are thoughtful, passionate and engaging. Financially, this was a more viable option than the local university, with similar curriculum and more cultural emersion. Everyone at ProBa Russian Language school rocks. I can’t wait to return to Saint-Petersburg, Russia one day.

It was just great to be here. All went smooth, I liked the lessons, the atmosphere, the city. I felt at home here in the school. I felt at ease with my teacher Natalia, she creates a warm atmosphere so I didn’t feel nervous or stupid when I didn’t immediately understand something. She takes the time to explain things and does not become upset when I again make a mistake. Time just went really quickly because it was a pleasure to have classes.
I was here for a week and did a private course. I liked it very much. Nice people, good atmosphere, patient, professional and friendly teacher which made that the time just flew by. Was fun and good. Hope to come again next year.

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!
