What our students said about Kiev

Rating: 5/5

5.0

I absolutely loved Kyiv. Everybody was really friendly and really easy to talk to. I didn't go shopping, so I can't really comment on that. As for public transport: everything is quite easy to reach by metro, but it's quite crowded (even though I was told that it's even worse outside the holiday period). There are loads of Uber drivers in Kyiv 24/7 though, so that's always an option as well (and still relatively cheap)!

Kiev is not a particularly beautiful city, but has improved greatly through the years, and does offer many things to see and do.

Simple, friendly atmosphere and good professors.
It's a great discount option for those seeking language study who are already familiar with the region. Not sure I would recommend it to a first time traveller, but worth the money compared to other schools.

It is a small school, which allows the teachers to respond to the strengths and weaknesses of the students. The content was very structured. The teacher, Olga, had a lot of patience and enthusiasm!
A sign at the entrance would be good. They are hard to find right away.

It needs a real venue - I felt like we were grabbing rooms from someone else - and they were pretty unsavoury.
