Alexandra did an amazing lessons. My skills greatly improved. I came here unable to write my name and I now I am able to write essays.

So, my Russian has improved a great deal. I never believed I would able to read and write as good as I can now. I have read many classic Russian writers and written essays on each in reflection.

Great teacher, very structured details of the language in grammar and conversation. She got us to talk with nice stories, always positive and with good spirits! Very motivating person! The lessons were great and they improved my Russian skills.

  My host family was very friendly, we talked a lot at breakfast and dinner, but I also had enough privacy for learning and to myself. There also were very good relationships with the other students living there.

The closeness to the centre. the school is really in the middle of the city. It was great for exploring the city. I liked that!

The course was very intensive on refreshing my Russian skills from many years of break. The teacher was great in bringing the group into conversation and practice, using the language directly after grammar lessons with nice stories, questions, discussion subjects. The school’s atmosphere is friendly, personal, 6-8 people in a group. The central location of the school leaves ggod possibilities to discover this great city directly after the lessons. Very recommendable.

My host family: Extremely good reactionship. Anastasiya went out of her way to help me in any way she could, and the flat has a fantastic atmosphere because she is always smiling and cheerful. I deel very lucky to have been placed with her. I really liked the idea of the school is not big and I love the location as it’s so central and only 10 minutes walk to my accommodation – PERFECT!
I came to Russian with some trepidation but all my fears were dipelled when I met the administrators and teachers in the school. They were so kind, helpful and well organised. I loved the fact that I could combine learning Russian along with getting to know the culture of this amazing city of St. Petersburg. I am planning to return next year for more lessons to ProBa – what better recommendation than this!

Vladimir is amazing teacher: perfect explanations, great material, suprrb personality. Hostlady Irina is extremely friendly and helps with whatever comes up. Our relationship was good. If you talk to her she is always willing to help and adjust. She made the whole trip a lot better.
I was at the school for two weeks and found it an overall good experience that gave me a good opportunity to experience the country, the people and their wonderful language.
