Very charming city, full of places to visit and historical monuments. People are mostly nice and welcoming; life is overall very affordable. The school would benefit from a small library, solely devoted to students who want to study on their own. I liked the fact that computers and big-screen TVs were in all classrooms, although not often being used by teachers. Levels were too different among students in the same class, and that dramatically slowed down the learning process.

Novamova, Kiev
Duration: 3 weeks

I have just come back from my third language stay in Russia in the following cities: Odessa, St Petersburg and Kiev. First of all, I want to point out the efficiency of the ESL Paris agency for the advice, the implementation of the administrative procedures and for organizing all my stays. On site, I was very happy to notice that the means used for teaching are of very high quality, the teachers listen to the students and gladly teach the language. My progress is so significant that I look forward to preparing a new stay.

Novamova, Kiev
Duration: 12 weeks

In 2016, I went to Kiev to take a Russian course. The educational team was very professional and the staff was very nice. My host family was very friendly and I spent some really good moments with them. And the food was amazing! The city is great and there are plenty of things to do (museums, theatres, parks, shops, etc.). Transports are easily accessible. In a nutshell, it was a wonderful stay!

Host family
Discover the daily life of a Ukrainian family during your language stay in Kiev! Your carefully selected host family will be happy to share their culture with you and guide you through the city. All of the families are Russian-speaking and will offer you a warm and friendly setting for practising Russian. According to your preferences, our partner language school can offer you a family in the centre of Kiev, some 30 minutes from the school, or within a larger perimeter around the capital (50 minutes max).

Take advantage of the original activities offered at the NovaMova Russian language school to add a cultural dimension to your language stay! Once a week, a classic of Soviet or contemporary Russian cinema will be shown at the school. The movie screenings – in Russian with English subtitles – are preceded and followed by discussions in order to clarify vocabulary and allow students to share their impressions on the film. NovaMova will also take you to discover Kiev’s major monuments and attractions, and if you are a sports fan, you can even attend a football match in one of the city’s stadiums. On the weekend, excursions to the most beautiful sites in Ukraine will be organised: to the majestic Monastery of the Caves and the World War II Museum and also to the port town of Odessa and the vibrant and touristic Lviv, in the east of the country. In the summertime, every other week NovaMova hosts a cooking club where a professional chef gives master classes in cooking a local Russian or Ukrainian dish.
