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!

Liden & Denz, St Petersburg
Duration: 2 weeks

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.
