Great course! It’s super useful if you want to improve fast! Would definitely recommend! Only issue I had is my host, wasn’t there but away on vacation... it sort of cancels the purpose of a host though...

I participated in a 2 weeks course with private classes and guest family accommodation. From the start, everything was very well organized and I was supported with selection of course types, the accommodation, visa process and pick up from the airport. This was very helpful. The course itself was professionally prepared and conducted by the private teacher. The accommodation was very modern, comfortable and I had a lot of opportunities to socialize with the guest family and to explore Moscow during my stay. On top, a weekly dinner with other students was arranged by the organizer so that I could mingle with fellow students. Overall it was a great experience!

Excellent private crash course that I took during my short stay in Moscow for two weeks. That gave  me a solid case rules and exceptions! Some people take even a combination of a group lesson and a private one. I took just a private one because I needed a flexibility in schedule.

How did I end up learning Russian at MGU? Well, I wanted to build upon my basic knowledge of Russian and MGU Russian has a wide variety of options to study the language at one's own pace. The website is professionally built, offers a lot of information and Julia is always available for additional details and well-thought-out advice. As for the actual course, I ended up taking the Intensive Group course of 20 academic hours per week with Professor Vyacheslav. The teaching style is very intense and Professor V. is leaving no stone unturned when it comes to explaining the intricacies of the Russian language and grammar. So now, not only am I able to better understand Russian, but am also able to express my thoughts and ideas in Russian, which was my goal all along. Whoever is serious about learning such a beautiful, melodious and rich language should definitely consider taking MGU's courses.
