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 strugling to find a suitable russian language course since november. It was very surprising to get an immediate response and be able to start that quickly. They have couple of classes with different levels and on mondays there are trial courses so you can participate and see your level fit. I am in the beginner class and the speed we learn and the amount we practice in the class is very promising. I always think the best way to learn a language is to be exposed to it. It'sbeen 5 months since we moved to Moscow and I am always outside living the city, language is everywhere but the real exposure was at MGU. I could even see the results just after one week.

It was very easy to register online. Nice location in Moscow center. I was not a complete beginner and they were able to put me in an accurate level group very easily. Passionate teacher and good learning speed if you want to make progress in a short amount of time. I recommend so far.

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...

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.

Les cours sont donnés en anglais plutôt qu'en russe et sont centrés exclusivement sur la grammaire (et non pas sur la pratique et l'utilisation de la langue) Pour ne pas devoir payer le livre obligatoire (à 10€), ils proposent aux élèves de l'avoir gratuitement s'ils donnent une bonne note sur google maps (d'où l'excellente notation...)
