Insider tips about what future students should not miss: enquire at school about the possibility of obtaining a student ticket or card that gives you great discounts to museum, for example free entrance to hermitage which is not to be missed for any reason.
Other comments: organization of social activities can be a bit chaotic and last minute.

Other comments: I would have preferred to have stayed longer. Learning Russian can be difficult at times, but Pro Ba always made sure I was comfortable with my lessons before continuing with new material.
The school issues student cards, with which you get free entry to the Eremitage and reduced or free entry to many other museums (unfortunately no reduction for audioguides). Excellent!
