Standard group course

20 lessons per week

Our basic Russian group course of 20 lessons per week is aimed to help you to improve your general linguistic communication skills. This Russian language course is focusing on all-round language skills and offers you a firm foundation in grammar and vocabulary, plus fluency in reading, writing, speaking and listening.

This course is our most popular one, promising all-round improvement in every area of general Russian. We offer tuition in mini-groups only (up to 4 students per group in low season and up to 6 students per group in high season).

This course runs all year round so the students can start any Monday throughout the year. The lessons take place in the morning hours, from 10:15 to 13:30. After the classes the students can either enjoy the free time or take extra one to one lessons. The minimum course length is one week.

Student testimonials

I did a 2 week-intensive-russiancourse at EducaCentre in line with \”Bildungsurlaub\”. What I loved a lot about this school is that it is so well organized. I did solicitude \”Bildungsurlaub\” before at another school, but it was a big fuss as my employer is in Hessen, where the rules for \”Bildungsurlaub\” are stricter than in other parts of Germany. This time with EducaCentre it was no problem at all,- they had all the necessary documentation ready and my employer granted the \”Bildungsurlaub\” right away! Apart from the organization the teachers are very qualified and professional as patient and friendly. Whilst teaching they give a lot of information about St. Petersburg and Russia. The school is located right at a metro station in a shopping center which also comes in handy to grab some quick coffee or something to eat. I really enjoyed my time at EducaCentre, I learned a lot and hope to be back soon for some more Russian! Спасибо за всё!

I would like to thank you for your kind attention and guidance during my stay in Saint Petersburg, and throughout the duration of the course. I feel compelled to commend you and the staff for both professionalism and quality of the program. As a language teacher myself, I found that both teachers were highly qualified and came up with very good exercises, for both grammar and reading, coaxed us into conversing in class, and kept a clear sense of the order on which it would benefit us most to cover the contents.  I am happy to say that thanks to Educa Centre I not only feel my Russian skills improved but also have a sheer drive to continue studying on my own and take classes in Russia yet again whenever my schedule allows it.

Congratulations on a job well done, and again my most sincere commendation for your excellent teachers.
