I really recommend

I really recommend this place, the facilities and teaching methods are wonderful here. I’ve been to different places in Russia before, but Saint Petersburg is the most beautiful city, not only in Russia but in the world. There`s a lot of fun things to do, a lot of things to see. I loved the teachers, they where very good and EDUCA’s location is superb, close to Newsky Prospect and Hermitage – all the tourists are coming to see the beauties around the school. I was there in 2019 and planning to go this year (if borders are open).

What was your funniest moment?
I met lots of nice people here and made lots of new friends.

I already understand cyrillic and even can read

I'm going to come for an intensive course of Russian in summer. I can't wait for it and I'm so excited!!!
I'm now working home office as many other people, so I decided to take up an online course with this school. I took a course of 31 lessons as they have a discount for bigger numbers of lessons and it will be enough for about 6-7 weeks of intensive learning for me. I've already had 8 lessons with Natalia and they were amazing. I already understand cyrillic and even can read. Mastering my rrrr sound now. Can you say zdravstsvute?? So much to improve now! The teacher is nice and patient, I feel that she cares about my progress and I won't let her down. Natalia, wait for me in summer! I already imagine our first meeting!

Highly recommended!!!

It took some time for me to research and decide on the best school to learn Russian but after seeing the location and contacting other students I’m glad I chose Educa. I had so many questions and Galina was so kind, detailed and quick to respond that I knew I wouldn’t have to worry. I studied Russian many years ago so I am starting from a basic level and from day 1 my teacher Polina went full-immersion mode and only used English when it was necessary. There are great activities planned and I am looking forward to them. With the student id you get discounts and free entries to many places around the city including the breathtaking Hermitage Museum. My experience is positive so far and I will be staying for 1 month.

I would highly recommend it to anyone else

I spent two weeks at Educa in September and I would highly recommend it to anyone else interested in studying Russian. The school is well organized and supports you through the visa process and can pair you with a host family if you so choose. Its location is amazing, being located just off Nevsky Prospect and so a short walk to most interesting cultural sites. I opted for the intensive group classes option and found them highly beneficial. Class sizes in my experience were small, either 2 or 4 people, which was extremely optimal for language learning. My teacher Olga was fantastic. The best language teacher I have had! As such I am very pleased with the progress made over two weeks. I hope to return to Educa in the future!

Highly recommended

It’s only been my first week, but so far I have really enjoyed it. My teacher Nina has been very good at not only giving the basic definitions of words, but also giving the deeper meanings and nuances of words and phrases. Along with having the great opportunity to hear and speak Russian in a controlled environment, it’s a great place to attend classes. I can tell Nina and all of the staff here truly care about the students and want to give them an amazing experience in not only learning the Russian language, but also showing the students this wonderful culture and country. I’m having a great time here and look forward to continuing classes here

My Russian has improved

I’ve spent three weeks in an intensive class. Before I came here, I could already understand Russian, but I couldn'r speak. Studying in a group motivates to speak more, so my speaking in Russian has improved whithn this short period. The atmosphere in the classroom is very comfortable, so even as someone who is starting to learn the language, you feel comfortable speaking Russian. Now I'm planning to learn more on my own and than I want to come again to study Russian at Educa Russian Language School.

Individual Classes at Educa

I have been im St Petersburg for one month and studing at Educa. I had an experience that was ment to inmprove my Rusian Language and it definetely did. The teacher is so professiaonal and experienced. She knows how to teach the language in a way so that any student would understand the topic. It is incredible how much my Russian is improving! And teachers and managers are always willing to support students. It is a great experience! I definetely can recommend these courses to anyone who wants to learn Russian!

My experience

Just started my first week here. I'm on a Russian Language course and the internship. The classes are small (four students in mine), which makes them intense and useful. One important thing if you feel hesitant to start here: the school is approachable & easy to reach if there's a problem. Like when I had a problem with my visa (while still being abroad), I called them, they spoke excellent English, know who I was and were quick to help. The problem was resolved in a very pleasant way. I'm convinced

I can highly recommend EDUCA

I can highly recommend EDUCA. It is the right combination of fun and learning Russian in an effective way. All the personals I was in touch with were extremely friendly and helpful. I received all the necessary info in advance and on the first day it took no time to arrange the formalities. My teacher, Olga was simply the best. She understood immediately my needs and I just adored her lessons. Luckily my small group was a good one too with pleasant ambience. Many mentioned before: the location is unbeatable, the very heart of SPB, just around the corner from various public transport options and all the wonders of this great city. I could not have enough to enjoy the beauty of Dvortsovaya Ploshad. (and the rest of the city.). Wish I could return soon and continue with my studies. If you are considering studying Russian language in SPB, EDUCA is probably the best choice! Thanks for everything, hope to see you soon.

I'm fully satisfied

It's just my 10th day here at Educa, out of 3 months of Standard General Russian Course, I still have many things to study in order to improve my russian skills, but so far I may say I'm fully satisfied of the courses. Classes are very small and teachers can focus on you, answering to all your doubts. The material is provided day by them, and last but not least every now and then they organize different interesting trips and excursions around the city to make you know it better. I highly recommend it.
