It's just my 10th day here at Educa, out of 3 months, I still have many things to study in order to improve my russian... skills, but so far I may say I'm fully satisfied of the courses. Classes are very small and teachers can focus on you, answering to all you doubts. The material is provided day by day by them, and last but not least every now and then they organize interesting trips and excursions around the city to make you know it better. I highly recommend it.read more

我已经是第二次在Educa学习了。我真的喜欢这个学校。我和这里的很多人都成为了朋友。我的老师们不仅在学校里帮助我学习俄语。他们也给了我很多在圣彼得堡生活的建议。我和这里的同学也相处得很好。明年我回圣彼得堡的时候还会和大家一起出去玩。I... t was my second time to study in Educa. I love this school. I have become friends with lots of people here. I know my teacher Nina, Anastasia and Natalia pretty well. They do not only teach me the language but also provide advice on how to live in SPB. I made lots of friends here too with whom I hopefully will hang out next year when I am back to this magic city of history, culture and arts.read more

I've been working with Educa Russian language school for a little over a few weeks now over Zoom chat. I must say that... I have had an excellent experience with my professor. She is not only incredibly kind and patient, but she has also helped me significantly with increasing my abilities to read, write and speak in Russian. With the help of Valeriya, I have been more comfortable with speaking the language, and I can read and write which I never thought would be possible. If I could give her six stars I would! Definitely a very good school and I would love to visit one day.read more

I'm going to come for an intensive course of Russian in summer. I can't wait for it and I'm so excited!!! I'm now... working home office as many other people, so I decided to take up an online course with this school. I took a course of 31 lessons as they have a discount for bigger numbers of lessons and it will be enough for about 6-7 weeks of intensive learning for me. I've already had 8 lessons with Natalia and they were amazing. I already understand cyrillic and even can read. Mastering my rrrr sound now. Can you say zdravstsvute?? So much to improve now! The teacher is nice and patient, I feel that she cares about my progress and I won't let her down. Natalia, wait for me in summer! I already imagine our first meeting!read more

Just started my first week here. The classes are small (four students in mine), which makes them intense and useful.... One important thing if you feel hesitant to start here: the school is approachable & easy to reach if there's a problem. Like when I had a problem with my visa (while still being abroad), I called them, they spoke excellent English, know who I was and were quick to help. The problem was resolved in a very pleasant way. I'm convincedread more

I have really enjoyed my time so far at Educa: the classes are engaging and tailored to your interests and the school... were so helpful when I had lots of questions during and after booking. A sidenote to anyone with a disability or mobility issues, living 'nearby' in Russian terms can mean an hour away, so be sure to specify exactly what you need so the school can try to accommodate this.read more

I arrived at Educa just in the last week, and everything has been really good. Galina was super helpful in helping me... throughout the visa process, going above and beyond. Valeria (my teacher) has been really good at explaining different concepts and making the lessons engaging. All the other staff have been great for making me feel welcome also. So far, I'd recommend Educa to anyone :)read more

I cannot recommend this place enough! I sent the last five weeks here, and my experience has been absolutely wonderful!... I decided to do the internship program with the Hermitage State museum, and EDUCA set it up for me and made it easy on my end. I ended up taking private lessons because of the internship, and my teacher made sure she understood my speed and areas of weakness and worked on them with patience and encouragement. The host family they placed me with is the best host family I could ask for! The family is so welcoming and friendly and I have gotten close with my house mother. The excursions are a fun and great way to get to know the city and people in the program. I was so pleasantly surprised to see just how friendly and open everyone was! They have even recommended ways for me to improve and progress in Russian when I return home. I am extremely satisfied with this experience and hope I can come back!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 missed so much... I spent 2 months at Educa this summer. It was the most beautiful summer of my life. I recomend... you to live with a host family rather than hostel. Because in this way I have a family in Russia. I still communicating with them statement. Teachers and interest in students was perfect, you will love Galina and Anastasia ❤️ If I come to Russia again (I'll definitely come), see you Educa ?Thanks for everything ☺️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

This is currently my second time studying at Educa and once again I’m very happy and satisfied with it. All classes are... small (no more than 4 people) in order to be able to focus more and have a better understanding of the language you’re studying. Here, you will be able to learn Russian while having a lot of fun and you will also practice speaking a lot! The school will organise many different activities, such as walking tours or speaking clubs to name a few. Everyone here is very friendly and always ready to help whenever you need. I really could not recommend more studying here at Educa! I assure you that you will not regret it!read more
