  • All accommodations are located either in the city center or at least within a short walk from a metro station. Host families have been cooperating with the school for years, and are regularly monitored.
    Please note that by Russian standards there is usually just one bathroom in a flat, so it is unrealistic to request a separate bathroom when you stay with a host family. Also remember that the number of central accommodations is limited, so the earlier you book, the more chances you have to stay within a walking distance from the school.
  • Max. 1 student of each nationality possible? yes
  • Single room: on request

Other comments: 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.
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.
