Insider tips about what future students should not miss: The business lunches in Kyiv are a great way to try different Ukrainian dishes! There's always free exhibitions at PinchukArtCentre (near Khreshatyk) which may be worth checking out. Also, I went to a festival at Kurazh Bazar which was really nice. I was told they organise something there about once every 3 or 4 weeks so you might want to keep an eye out for that as well. Similarly, I went to a really nice dance event at ArtZavodPlatforma (a really cool old factory site!) even though I don't usually go to stuff like that. It was called Белые Ночи/White Nights and I think it's a recurring event. Finally, I received some tips for nice lesser-known cafés from some locals I met at a nice cocktail bar called Tom Sour (near Maidan Nezalezhnosti): Хвильовий/Hvyl'ovyy, Pink Freud (both in Podil) and Кеды искусствоведа (near Khreshatyk).
Other comments: I couldn't find the school at first because there's no sign outside and it's located in an apartment building. Also, it took me a while before I understood the front door so you might want to ask someone how it works.
The teachers are very thorough and committed to our learning.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: If you've only got a few weeks in Kiev, take your studies to as many different cafe's to explore and get a vibe for the city.
Other comments: It's a tiny school, but excellent nonetheless. It's better suited for committed students who are committed to learning the language without expectations of much social experience with other students as it's small.
