I spent 6 weeks of intensive course at Educa and I truly recommend this school to everyone that wants to improve or learn Russian. After just few weeks I could already see a great improvement in my speaking skills and I became more and more confident in speaking Russian. The classes are really small and the teachers are very patient and kind and they care about every students' need. I was also in an host family and I really loved my time there. Although the house wasn't really close to the school, I still liked everything, I had a lot of privacy and the host mom was like another mom, always thoughtful and ready to help me and the other students with everything. I also met a lot of really interesting people at school that made the whole experience even better!read more

My experience with Educa was absolutely amazing! The location of the school was in the heart of the city centre, the classes were small and very personal. All the teachers are very kind and patient and I improved my level of Russian a lot in Just one month, both in terms of speaking and grammar. Impeccable experience! I can’t wait to go back again. I was very happy with the social activities organised by the school several times a week and I’ve met amazing people through the school! ♥️♥️ much love for Educa!read more

Super Schule, super Lehrer und einfach eine angenehme Atmosphäre :) Ich hatte (leider nur) sechs Wochen , in denen ich die Schule besuchte, doch habe ich in dieser Zeit sehr viel gelernt! Die Lerngruppen sind meist sehr klein und die unterschiedlichen Niveaus der Schüler werden gut aufeinander abgestimmt, weshalb man wirklich sehr intensiv und effektiv die Sprache lernt, vor allem auch was das Sprechen angeht! Außerdem plant die Schule auch immer Aktivitäten verschiedenster Art. So erfährt man auch einiges über Historie und Kultur in Sankt Petersburg/Russland. Freue mich schon auf meinen nächsten Besuch :)Great school, great teachers and just a nice atmosphere in general :) I had (unfortunately only) six weeks in which I attended school, but I learned a lot during that time! The learning groups are usually very small and the different levels of the students are well coordinated. That's why you really learn the language very intensive and effective, especially in terms of speaking! In addition, the school also always plans various activities. So you also learn a lot about the history and culture in Saint Petersburg / Russia. I'm already looking forward to my next visit :)read more

I'm from Spain and I took an intensive Russian language course for 4 weeks in Educa. My experience was wonderful. We were just 3 students in the class and the teacher was really good. We just heard and spoke Russian language in class, which has helped me a lot. I also liked the afternoon activities. The premises location can't be better, in the very centre of Saint Petersburg. All the staff in the school make a wonderful team. I can only recommend it.read more

Friendly atmosphere :) I spent two months in St Petersburg studying at the Educa language school. I can highly recommend it as the lessons are held from really competent, helpful, lovely and funny teachers. Moreover, the group lessons include actually few students, all more or less at the same level. That's great because it gives you the possibility to interact constantly with the teacher and the other students, to take part actively in the lessons. The school organizes a conversational club, a cinema club and some guided trips through the town as well, so you get to know many students, not just the ones that study with you in your same class!read more

I can highly recommend Educa. I had intensive class for 4 weeks- and that was very intensive! But i needed to do it since I had not been to school for 40 years. I loved the teachers, they where very good and the location is superb, close to Newsy Prospect and Hermitage. The class was small, only tree persons witch was perfect for me and I learned more than I expected. I will continue with more classes at Educa when I will go back to St. Petersburg again.👍😊🇳🇴❤️🇷🇺.📖📚read more

Absolutely amazing experience. I had two different teachers in 2 months studying here and both of them were extremely talented. The class sizes were around 4-5 people per class, which is perfect if you're serious about learning. Honestly, the amount of progress I made in 2 months was unimaginable due to the quality of this program. The only thing I recommend is that you live in a hostel/hotel rather than the host family. It will save you a lot of money and there are plenty of Russian speakers in a hostel that you can communicate with.Thank you, Educa!read more

I studied in Educa for two weeks, a short time but absolutely useful! The teacher Vlada was very prepared and nice. In class we were in groups of 3/4 people and this was essential to improve the speaking part. I chose to stay in a family and this made me able to practice the language all day and discover new things about life in Russia. The city is wonderful and the school also organizes some excursions. An added value are Galina and Margarita for their kindness in the management of the students. I absolutely recommend this school to live a complete and enjoyable experience! 🤗🇷🇺read more

I have been studying in Educa for nine weeks. I started almost from zero, but, thanks to very efficient lessons, I made quick improvements. In facts, in class there are usually between 3 and 5 students, so you get full attention from the teachers, which are very prepared. They definitely deserve 5 stars.read more

Ho studiato presso educa 3 settimane.. Ottima scuola, si studia divertendosi!!! La scuola si trova nel centro (vedi foto, appena giù al palazzo si vedeva l'hermitage) , é una bellissima struttura colorata e nuova. Gli insegnati sono molto preparati e lo staff è super gentile e disponibile. Al mattino studiavano in gruppo, di pomeriggio lezione intensive, eccetto quando visitavamo insieme la città con il walking tour. Il sabato anche facevamo escursioni insieme. Consiglio vivamente la scuola per chi come me vuole migliorare le speaking abilities e sentirsi a proprio agio parlando in russo :)))read more

I took a one week standard group course with my wife at the EDUCA School in Saint Petersburg. The school is very organized and we both had a lot of fun during our visit to Russia. We learned a lot from the talented teachers and were able to quickly use our Russian Language Skills during our Trip. We made new friends in class and during the excursions offered by the school which included a lunch and a boat trip! The school itself is in a prime location just next to the Winter Palace. The school staff was very pleasant and accommodating to our needs as a student. They were very helpful from the initial contact via email answering all of our questions and they even picked us up at the Airport and helped us settle in by getting a SIM card and dropping us off at the hotel. I would highly recommend any interested students to enroll at EDUCA. When I return I will definitely enroll again! It’s the best way to immerse into the great city of Saint Petersburg and learn the Russian Culture!read more

"I am ageing and i am still learning"said Solon, the great Greek poet and law maker in 600 BC. My name is Andreas Sylikiotis, i am from Cyprus and i am 71 years old. Four years ago i decided to learn russian, so i took evening lessons once a week.I was learning, but i couldn t speak.So this summer i came to Educa. The organisation of my stay was perfect- management, office personnel, and my teachers exceeded my expectations. I took the full immersion course. indoor lessons with Natalia were excellent and were complemented in a great way by afternoon outings with Anastasia. We visited museums, churches, and i had the chance to practice my russian while learning about the city history. After two weeks, i now feel confident to speak and discuss in russian' I strongly recommend EDUCA to everybody who is interested in actively improving his russian speaking skills.read more

I really had a great time at Educa. Our teacher was very competent with great teaching skills, humour and patience. My speaking abilities increased quickly. The staff was always very friendly and helpful, they organized an interesting programme and made sure everybody could participate. And they created an atmosphere where everybody felt welcomed and relaxed. The position of the school very close to the winter palace is fantastic. The school provided a family-stay for me right in the centre. I stayed with a wonderful family with lots of interests. They included me in their family life and, for example, took me to a concert where their son performed; but they also gave me a lot of space on my own, if I wanted it.I liked it so much, I decided spontaneously to stay an extra week at the school and the family.read more

My experience at Educa has been absolutely sensational! I have studied Russian for three years at university but I really needed to improve my speaking skills and within little more than one month stay I feel I have reached amazing results. The classes are very small, so you have the chance to practice a lot of speaking while learning as much about grammar and local culture. The teachers and the school staff are all very kind and ready to help whenever you need. They organise many extracurricular activities like, for example, walking tours and speaking classes. Also, you will be welcomed with a lunch at a typical Russian restaurant and a bus/boat tour. I highly recommend studying here and I can assure you that you won't regret it!read more
