What students liked about Derzhavin Institute, St. Petersburg
Quality of teaching is very high and the teachers use different tools to help us progress in our language studies. The school is centrally located, which allows the student to reach it easily. The organisation at the Institute is really high-level, which made me feel really comfortable from the first day on.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: I realy liked the leisure activities organised by school not only during the week but, also on Saturdays. I went to Petergrof and Pushkin with school and in both cases, it was great experience.
The whole organisation was professional, efficient, well-structured, straightforward and kind. And I loved that we only spoke Russian.
