Any time of year is a good time to learn Russian in Russia, where each season brings something unforgettable. In winter, you’ll walk along snow-white streets blown straight out of the pages of great Russian literature. In spring, you can join in the celebrations of the thawing of the snow, whilst the long evenings in summer provide Russians with the perfect excuse to stay up all night. There has never been a better time to learn Russian, one of six official languages of the United Nations, and a means of communication across much of Eastern Europe. Learn Russian at one of our schools in St Petersburg or Moscow, and explore this beautiful country of extravagant palaces and fascinating people.
Or, if you are an EU citizen, and do not want to bother with getting a visa for Russia, you can choose to Learn Russian in Latvia, a member state of the European Union, on a Russian course in Riga.
Alternatively, you can Learn Russian in Kiev, an excellent alternative to Moscow or St Petersburg, particularly if you are a student from the United States, Canada, European Union, Japan, South Korea or Switzerland, as you do not require a visa for visits of up to 90 days.
