Most students take the Intensive course of 20 lessons each week, but you can choose to combine your language studies with lessons focusing on Russian culture, language for business, or even music. If you want to learn as much Russian as possible during your stay, or work on a specific area of the language, you can also take a course of private lessons, either taken alone, or in addition to a group course.

Student reviews & feedback

I had 4 individual lessons per day. I had three different teachers during the week. They were all different and all good in their own way.

My hostess was good: she talked to me a lot (the most important thing for me) and even organised tickets for the Bolshoi !

It was my second language course in Russia through Apple and it was a good experience again. Thank you !

Good level, challenging. The teacher was great, got us to speak a lot, learnt lots of new vocabulary and grammar. Friendly hosts who talked to me every evening, and provided me with plenty of food.

I learned a lot, had to study hard. I went to St. Petersburg and Moscow. I liked St. Petersburg the best, because this school provides a little bar/meeting place, where I had contact with many students. The teachers were wonderful, they made my study a real pleasure.

The school is very modern with contemporary surroundings and free online facilities. The school is situated in a gated compound and very close to the Belarus Train/Metro station. Teaching standards were very high with experienced and qualified staff teaching students from around the world; the courses were stimulating and tailored to your linguistic level, the use of all mediums helped you appreciate the complexities of the Russian language, with each 50 minute lesson being fun, making the grey matter buzz more! My accommodation was exceptionally clean, with every convenience necessary. My room was spacious, warm and comfortable, the meals filling and food fresh and delicious! My apartment was a very short walk to a bus stop and a short ride to the metro station making access to the school feel effortless. I shared a flat with a retired lady, my newly adopted babushka, who was a delight to be with, she was very friendly and it was a joy trying to communicate with her. My Russian improved dramatically during my stay, reducing the need for universal hand signals and dictionary word searches. A must for would be linguists!
