As times change and Russian economic influence is felt far more strongly than ever before, Russian has become a "must-learn" language for students from all over the world. Reputedly the most difficult language in the world to learn, (Chinese giving it a run for its money), our schools are exceptionally experienced in helping students overcome its obstacles and its hurdles, so that real progress is made.
Coming to learn Russian in Russia is far more than taking the opportunity to see Red Square and some cossacks marching. It is to immerse yourself in that culture, deepen your understanding of it and be moved. It is the language with one of the most elegant and important literary canons of western civilisation, a culture that values the arts and story-telling through its rich balletic tradition, and of course the nation state with a history whose effects have been felt all over the world.
Whether it be for business, a future career or simply for pleasure, you can be assured that there is a course at your level with a motivated, helpful teacher waiting for you as well as the experience of a lifetime.
