Positive aspects of school
Absolutely nothing. I ended up leaving early as they gave me only half of the booked classes. I booked 2 classes per day as a beginner. When I arrived they would give me only one and did not teach me beginner level. I was very disappointed.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Just don't go here as a beginner.

Positive aspects of school
The warm welcome and highly individualized, the quality of teaching. More generally, the relaxed feeling of security which allows to consider progress in this wonderful language. Each student I met appeared to have found their place and their happiness whatever their age. The premises are full of light, there are beautiful views overlooking a park for children, with lots of trees.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
The adjoining street Rubinstein, its animation (Jazz), restaurants with varied menus (Italian, Spanish and of course russian), its renowned theaters, especially the Europe theater and a street behind it, the Leninsoviet theater

I must say that I recommend this school for a wonderful stay in Petersburg, in comparison with others I visited before.

Other comments
Overall, good teaching and an amazing city, but remember that the school and others involved with it are driven by the bottom line and very little else. Be wise to this in order to ensure that you get what you paid for, let alone good value for money.

Studying russian for 3 weeks in EXTRA-SCHOOL is equivalent to my 1 year russian course in Poland ( 1h a week). I highly recommend their services.
