Wonderful city and so beautiful. I was sad there...

Wonderful city and so beautiful. I was sad there was no snow and learned that it's a myth that it snows all over Russia in winter! I advise you to get the Yandex Taxi app as soon as you can as I got badly ripped off by a dodgy taxi driver on arrival. He charged me 4,000 roubles for a journey that should have cost about 100 roubles and threatened to keep my suitcase. Apart from that, I had an amazing time.

- There was no evaluation of entry and exit contrary to the promise of the flyer. Just a grammar test on the 2nd day. -In 1 week, during 1 day they put the levels A2, B1, B2 together in other words a day lost for everyone -No written exercises -Written exercises not adapted to the A2 level -No correction during speaking time-The only positive point: grammar exercises that are correct
I would recommend another school, for the moment the pedagogy in this school comes 2nd. They are just interested in cashing your money. The manager of this school does not seem to have a love for language learning, it's a pity.

My sympathetic, competent teacher Alexandra. She is the best lanuage teacher I ever had. Outstanding!!! I admire her motivation and dedication. She can adapt teaching strategy to the student's need. I was on primary level, got good start of language during my 2 weeks. I will definitely go back and continue studying.
The school is well organized. Courses starting on each Monday, any level and for any age. Exellent location and on a nice street. Helpful and friendly staff. Also, my homestay wuth a lovely person, Anastasia, was ideal. I can give my best recommendations.
