Students liked about ProBa Educational Centre, St. Petersburg
I did language courses before but I've never met teachers who are so committed to the progress of their students, for example nearly daily we were at school longer then the official schedule. great combination of practical grammar, application of it and lots of talking. highly recommendable methods.

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.
The place in the centre of the town and the nice teachers.
