Sehr kleine, aber moderne Wohnung. Ein wunderschönes Zimmer, mit super Bett und Wahnsinnsaussicht. Punktabzug beim Dusche/Bad, weil wir das mit der Katze teilten (Katzentoilette, Futternapf...). Beim Essen hätte es etwas mehr Gemüse geben können, aber das ist ein Detail.Irina war eine äusserst zuverlässige und mit Sprachschülern erfahrene Gastmutter. Sie hat gleich zu Beginn ihre Hausregeln kommuniziert, das fand ich gut. Essen stand immer bereit. Ihr war es wohl ein Anliegen, stets zuhause zu sein, was für mich als Ü30 allerdings nicht notwendig gewesen wäre. Aufgrund der sehr kleinen Wohnung hätte ich manchmal gerne ein bisschen mehr Privatsphäre gehabt. Aber auch das ist ein Detail. Ich fand es super dort. Die Ausflüge der Schule waren meines Erachtens zu teuer.

« Die Managerinnen und Lehrerinnen haben die Schule voll und ganz im Griff. Die Organisation klappte stets. Auf die Wünsche der Studenten wurde stets eingegangen. Jeden Freitag gabs eine kleine Abschiedszeremonie für die Studenten, die den Kurs beendeten. Sehr sympathisch. »

L'école est idéalement située dans le centre de St Pétersbourg. Tous les professeurs sont dynamiques et chaleureux. Les progrès se font vite sentir au fil des cours! Les excursions proposées sont très bien organisées, passionnantes! Les alentours de St Pétersbourg valent vraiment le détour!

« Je pense avoir fait beaucoup de progrès en termes de grammaire (le russe est une langue difficile et il faut du temps pour s'habituer à parler en utilisant les déclinaisons) mais surtout dans ma fluidité en général. Les cours combinés au temps passé à St Pétersbourg à discuter avec des Russes forment un bon équilibre entre apprentissage et pratique. »
Top tips
« Ne pas rester uniquement à St Pétersbourg! Les alentours sont superbes. Surtout, ne pas hésiter à parler, même en faisant des erreurs, c'est la seule manière de mettre les cours en pratique. »

Liden & Denz, St Petersburg
Duration: 7 weeks

After 7 weeks of courses at the Language Centre Liden & Denz in St Petersburg, I realize how much progress I’ve made and am satisfied with the teaching. The school is ideally located and its managers are friendly and attentive. I intend to go back there in order to take another language course. I recommend this school to anyone wishing to develop their Russian skills.

Liden & Denz, St Petersburg
Duration: 6 weeks (and 6 weeks at Liden & Denz, Moskow)

My feedback for my 3 months in Russia : I can say that I am very satisfied. It was quite a good choice to visit the school in Moscow and then the school in St Petersburg. But if I would do it again I would spend more time in St Petersburg than in Moscow. St Petersburg is really beautiful and the atmosphere in the school is great!!! Moscow and St Petersburg are two cities worth to visit. The teachers of Liden & Denz are really supportive and it is possible to see our progress!! Thank you!

I like it a lot here. The weather is acceptable: in February I prefer the dry cold and the snow to a cold and wet weather. I am already planning to come back (and for a longer period) – thanks ESL for this beautiful experience in Saint Petersburg.
