My teacher was amazing and the receptionist, Alena, was incredibly helpful if you need recommendations or help with anything locally.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Ask Alena for a student discount pass so that you can get into museums and exhibitions for free or at a discount. Ask her to tell you where to get a Russian SIM card to get unlimited data (for maps, etc) for a really good price.

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

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.
