Our partner school enjoys a central location, just steps from several iconic Saint Petersburg attractions: the Russian Museum, the famous Nevsky Prospekt shopping street, the Philharmonia, the historical arcade “Passage” and a wide range of theatres, restaurants and cafés. On the first floor of a recently refurbished historical building, located inside an arcade, you will study Russian in 13 bright and spacious classrooms, equipped with the latest technology. There is free Wi-Fi for students and you can relax in the lounge where iPads are available for use. During your free time, take the nearby metro and explore this magical city, the former capital of the Tsars.

St Petersburg var otroligt fint och känslan under VM var makalös. Det är en underbar stad som jag rekommenderar alla att se. Jag var otroligt lyckligt lottad med en lärare som både var duktig och rolig, hela klassen tyckte om henne. På intensivkursen hade vi inte lika bra tur med lärarna. Folk kom mest från Schweiz och Tyskland vilket betydde att alla pratade tyska, något som drog ner upplevelsen något för den som inte pratade tyska då det blev svårare att vara social Som nämnt ovan, lite för mycket tysktalande så tycker fler från Norden borde åka! Men vår grupp var otroligt härlig, har träffat en drös underbara och intressanta människor som definitivt satte spår. Jag tror att åldern i vår grupp var en av de mest varierade då det gick från 15-51, skulle tro att den genomsnittliga studenten på skolan inte är så ung utan 30-40+. Men det fanns ändå en del ungdomar när jag var där, kanske pga Vm. Hade lite svårt för värdmamman, även om hon egentligen var snäll och gjorde väldigt mycket för att få mig att känna mig hemma. Det var lite tråkigt att vara hos en ensamstående person, min vän i skolan fick bo hos en ung familj med en dotter i min ålder vilket kanske hade passat bättre. Hon var säkert en bra värdmamma men inte för mig, vi klickade inte och därför känner jag inte att jag kan rekommendera henne även om hon var kunnig inom "sitt yrke." Tyvärr så blev en av aktiviteterna inställd pga för få deltagare men jag deltog i en nattcykeltur vilken var toppen.

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.

« Ja, aber nur kleine, denn Russisch ist eine sehr schwierige Sprache. »
School highlights
« 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. »
Top tips
« Die Stadt St.Petersburg in ihrer ganzen Pracht. Kulturinteressierte sollten bloss nicht zu viele Lektionen am Nachmittag buchen, denn es gibt so viel zu sehen und zu tun in St.Petersburg :) »

Cela revient vite cher si l'on veut prolonger son séjour ou sortir des cours standards.Mais l'école est parfaitement située, les gens géniaux, les activités excellentes. Ma professeure était très efficace aussi !

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.
