I’m completely satisfied with the course, as I wanted to have a basic look into the language and to have an idea how to study the Russian language – so the course I’ve had absolutely met my requirements. It was my first time in St.Petersburg and I was very pleased with the city and the people, their lifestyle, etc. The ProBa School is good organised and very helpful. I’ve had no problems at all. I will definitely return to Russia and stay in St.Petersburg longer, if it’s possible. Definitely fell in love with the city and the School!

Natalia is a good teacher. I was in a small group, so each student received as much attention as needed. We spoke a lot in the classroom and outside – we became a really good friends. I felt like at home! And St.Petersburg is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. I had a marvelous holiday here, studying and relaxing.

My friend recommended me to learn Russian in the ProBa School. I wasn’t disappointed. Totally would suggest anyone, who wants to learn the Russian Language, visiting the ProBa Language School and enjoy Saint-Petersburg.

My teacher Maria challenges her students and teaches very well, so for me it was really helpful in learning the Russian language. My host family was very kind to me as well and spoke to me in Russian, so it also helped me a lot in the learning process.
