La signora Tatjana si è rivelata molto gentile e disponibile dal primo momento, mostrandomi il quartiere e accompagnandomi a svolgere delle commissioni la sera del mio arrivo. Durante tutto il soggiorno, Tatjana mi ha fatto sentire a casa, preparandomi piatti italiani e russi, consigliandomi luoghi di interesse da visitare e aiutandomi qualora ne avessi avuto bisogno

Les russes sont peu enclins à vous aider à trouver votre cheminLe pays est très policé, les gens sont peu chaleureux Le fait d'avoir déménagé de l'oulitsa Italianskaïa au lieu actuel a diminué l'intimité de l'école, elle était encore en travaux et les locaux étaient moins beaux que ceux d'avant, de plus le secrétariat laissait beaucoup à désirer Bonne ambiance de classe

Sankt Petersburg in Russland, eine traumhafte Stadt, die aber nicht das Russland repräsentiert, was der Otto Normalverbraucher sich so unter Russland vorstellt. Ein Molloch von 5 Millionen Einwohnern plus ich weiß nicht wie viele Touristen. Wer das mag - prima - ansonsten sehr anstrengend. Hervorragende Qualität der Sprachlehrer

« Grammatisch bin ich fit, aber sprachlich nicht. Man lernt jede Menge "Ausländer" kennen, mit denen man englisch spricht, aber man hat wenig Kontakt zu Muttersprachlern.

Des méthodes très intéressantes et qui varient de professeur à professeur. Des professeurs exigeants et très gentils. Des progrès assurés à condition de suivre leurs instructions, de ne pas manquer de cours et de faire les devoirs à la maison. J'aime beaucoup l'école Liden et Denz à Saint-Pétersbourg. J'avais comme professeur cette fois-ci Zlata, dont j'ai beaucoup apprécié l'efficacité, la gentillesse et l'écoute Un séjour fuctueux et très agréable. Un grand merci !

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.
