Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Be prepared, learn the alphabet beforehand, listen to website podcasts, learn the cases and the conjugation of the commonest verbs!
Other comments: I would have appreciated it if there were more students at my level (beginner). You state on the internet site that no prior knowledge is necessary, but I would not have completed the course if I hadn't studied for three months in advance, as, luckily, I had done.
The teacher, who truly was dedicated to that we would learn Russian, and had enormous patience
