An excellent crash private lesson that took during my short stay in Moscow for two weeks. That gives me a solid case rules and exceptions. Some people take a combination of a group lesson and a private lesson but I took only the private one because of the schedule flexibility. Спасибо большое!

The course is very well-structured and organised. It provides a thorough and substantial introduction to the practical aspects of teaching Russian as Foreign Language. Both novice and experienced teachers will find it useful for themselves. I would in particular commend teachers' invaluable contribution to delivery of webinars(I personally fell in love with those devoted to the phonetics of the Russian language). Since the course is very practical it requires students to complete tasks for which they receive constructive feedback with further recommendations from highly experienced tutors. I would like to say a huge thank you to my instructor Anastasia Ponachevnaya who was very helpful throughout my learning experience. She was approachable, supportive and her valuable feedbacks helped me throughout the whole course!!

I have been studying at MGU for a number of weeks now and would enormously recommend the school to anyone interested, no matter what your current proficiency is. My existing abilities were very well judged and I was subsequently matched with a language instructor - 'Tatiana' - who understands my learning process and has created a calm and productive learning environment. MGU is in the centre of Moscow, super close to most of the most famous attractions and very accessible from all corners of the city. But best of all, you will meet interesting and friendly students/classmates from all over the world who like you, are driven to maximising their Russian language skills. The course can be as intensive as you choose it to be. My recommendation is: pick MGU.
