Fun and serious at the same time!

10/10

I had lots of fun to intern at Liden & Denz in St-Petersburg. That was my 4th time at Liden & Denz and coming here as an intern was the right decision! I made videos for the Youtube channel and I felt like that I improved in this field. Thanks to all the staff and especially Liza, the supervisor, who was always here to help us (and to have fun!)! I would recommend this program to anybody who would like to improve his Russian and make something useful for his CV!

Best 2 months!

I would highly recommend the Liden & Denz internship programme to anyone looking to live and work in Russia, while improving their Russian language and gain a deeper understanding of Russian culture. My tasks included proof-reading pieces in English, the odd bit of translation and writing three blog posts a week about learning Russian and living in St. Petersburg. Every aspect of the programme met my expectations: the lessons in the morning were led by excellent teachers and I really felt my Russian came along in the two months I was there, and the working environment at the school in the afternoon was very pleasant, positive and supportive. There was always a staff member on hand to answer questions and help out, and eventually with some staff members the relationship became less formal and we really got on well. Writing blogs forces you to get out there and find inspiration, saying yes to things you might not usually have gone for. There is a really nice dynamic between the interns and saying goodbye to the wonderful people doing the same job as me was not easy! Overall, I am so grateful to all the staff and students at Liden & Denz for making me feel at home, you will be missed!

Student and Intern for 1 month

8/10

Efficiency, positive and friendly atmosphere, teachers' professionalism and willingness to help, what more could you ask for? It has been only a month for me, but it was absolutely worth it. I noticed an incredible improvement of my communication skills and my internship, as a translator and a blogger/editorial assistant, has been a unique experience. I came back home with a valuable working experience that allowed me to work independently and to discover the most hidden aspects of the capital and Russian culture in a very easy and exciting way. I cannot do other than recommend the school and I can't wait to come back!

How can this program be improved?

I suggest they improve the Muscovite spirit team, since the head of the interns' team and its main body are based in St Petersburg and you could feel a little alone in Moscow (when I was there, there was only one intern other than me).

Gap Year Success!

10/10

What an amazing way to spend 5 months! This is my second time interning at Liden & Denz, this time as a full-time video blogger. My Russian improved by leaps and bounds with the private lessons, and by the end, I was able to converse with my manager in Russian about my work. I was given immense creative freedom and my responsibilities grew as the internship progressed. I couldn't have asked for a better experience!

How can this program be improved?

More informal meetings over lunch/dinner would be really fun!

A brilliant experience!

10/10

Working as a blogger at Liden & Denz in St. Petersburg was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I gained valuable communication, computer and journalistic skills and really felt like part of the Liden & Denz family. From writing articles on Russian culture to exploring new parts of St. Peterbsurg, there was never a dull day in the office! I also had Russian lessons as well as working as an intern, and I made huge leaps in my language skills. The immersive teaching techniques are brilliant and the teaching staff were so encouraging and friendly. I would definitely recommend coming to study or work here (or both!) – you won’t regret it! Большое спасибо!
