"A great place to study Russian, very professional teachers and small classes"

Christine Diab, student from Switzerland

The director gave me a very warm welcome at the airport and took me to the host family who is actually a lady of my age without any knowledge of other languages. This made me try to speak Russian from the first day.
To my surprise at school we were only 4 students and 3 teachers. So the school is really small and I had the privilege of one to one lessons most of the time.
The teachers are very professional and experienced. They speak either German or English very well. The manager is great too. She even takes care of special needs of students and organises concert tickets, excursions, or trips to the coast.
The location is a bit far from the center. But public transport is sufficient and frequent and most host families are close to school.
With my host mother I was very happy too. She prepared breakfast according to my needs and is very hospitable and communicative.
