What students liked about Extra Class Language Center, St. Petersburg
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.
