Student opinions about EDUCA Russian language school, St. Petersburg

Liked
I really like the intensive-but-friendly quality of learning, and I feel like I learned a lot! Daily homework was motivating and reasonable. The teacher and the group were really friendly, and the classes were diverse (some grammar, some vocabulary, some talking - it never got monotonous).
Insider tips about what future students should not miss: The riverboat trip with EDUCA was really fun! Also, take advantage of the student ID they give you; you can visit Hermitage for free and other museums with discounts!

I really enjoyed my lessons. My teacher was professional and all lessons were well structured. The school is flexible and provides the best options according to the student’s needs. I think my speaking is better now. I’ll definitely continue taking lessons at Educa School.

Quality of teaching / language progress: I've been at EDUCA in the spring of 2019 for 4-weeks groups course. I fell in love with the school, my teacher, my host family and of course with the fascinating Saint Petersburg! The school is so friendly and the staff is always ready to help. The teacher I had was very professional, I liked lessons with her so much that when I finally got some spare time, I decided to take online lessons when I got back home. It was very effective for my Russian and as soon as I have spare time again, I will definitely come back to EDUCA, at least for another portion of Skype lessons. But it is worth to visit the school in person. It is wonderful! Thank you EDUCA!
Other comments: I want to come back asap!

Quality of teaching / language progress: In winter there are only a few students, so instead of booked lessons in a group, I had individual lessons, which of course also has positive sides. Classroom a bit dreary. Technology doesn't work. Teachers mostly female and very friendly and helpful. Very centrally located school. Respond to individual requests. There were several community activities each week.
Other comments: Thank you for the wonderful time. Thank you for not incurring any fees when I rescheduled my appointment due to illness. Good service, nice teachers.
