As a 61 year old, I did not feel at all out of place. There were people of all ages there. Most of them were young, but no one cared about age.

The school organized a boat party on the Neva River with Russian students of English. There was lots of food and drinks and lots of fun!

You should stay in a host-family, because it's a wonderful opportunity to know more about culture and people and obviously to practise what you've learned at school. They can give you also some good tips what to see!

Positive aspects of school
The atmosphere was great. Especially the front desk was most helpful in answering the questions that came up (mostly practical ones, daily life issues)
Other comments
The combination of lessons in a group and individual lessons sure is more useful (I did 20 per week in a group and 10 more per week with a teacher). If I imagine the load of 30 hours with only me being the center of attention...well.. this would have been much harder. However, if one needs the quickest possible progress then the individual lessons sure are best (as the speed will be adjusted)

I started to learn Russian in a small group of 6 students - even if there where many students in the school when I came last September. Very good atmosphere, dynamic and devoted teachers. Moreover, the Liden&Denz team is very friendly and it really makes your life easier!
