Pleasant atmosphere, fiendly, hightly motivated team and very good teachers made my journey in Russia unforgetable!

First of all, I want to thank all of you, I am very lucky that I met you. For me it is a very usefull experience in terms of russian study and in terms of that you opened me a new culture and I met with very interesting people. I want to come back once again to your School. Thank you for support and great individual approach! (This feedback was written in Russian language).
Riccardo Rubegni, Italy (2015)
Il corso è organizzato per fornire gli elementi di conversazione della vita quotidiana tra russi. Permette quindi di integrarsi giorno dopo giorno e le attività culturali organizzate dalla scuola consentono di visitare posti fantastici e naturali. Io partendo da zero ho trovato il corso perfetto e dopo sole 10 lezioni sono stato in grado di fare frasi semplici al tempo presente. L’insegnante, conoscendo un ottimo italiano, ha saputo indirizzare il corso evidenziando i punti critici per un italiano che impara il Russo velocizzando l’apprendimento.
Claire Burchett, UK/France (2015)
The teachers were very patient and helpful, good exercise book had really good and helpful exercises. Volunteers were really helpful and friendly: Nastya, Katya and Dasha were particularly nice. In general the programme is a really good system. Great teaching and support, helped by the cultural programme. The most remarkable episode was going to the beach with the group from the school. I think it is really helpful to learn Russian in a relaxed environment with a lot of encouragement and authentic Russian experience. Thank you for everything, I’ve really enjoyed my stay!
Tim Hallam, UK (2015)
The content of the language course and teaching materials were good! Even though it is a personal thing, but I really like grammar drills. Teaching was really fun and I feel so much more confident! My comprehension of listening and reading has improved a lot. My only wish is to come back. Living conditions could not be better! Galina is an excellent host, everything was great: great food and very friendly. I liked Kizhi and Fine Art Museum – many good items and paintings. I went back the next day because I liked it so much. Organization and administration of the program were excellent. I would highly recommend the program to anyone wanting to learn Russian. The small classes are great and it is a very attractive town.
Giulia Sgarbossa, Italy (2015)
The course matched my expectations! The teacher was very well-prepared and available to solve all the issues and mistakes. The volunteer I liked was Anytka! The organization and the administration of the program were very good, coordinators were very kind. I think that this program offers a 100% immersion! I learnt a lot about Russian culture. One of the most remarkable moment from my staying in Petrozavodsk was that Russians understood me and I was able to answer quite immediately. It surprised me a lot!
Giada Carulli, Italy (2015)
The program was perfect! It ‘touches’ every sphere of the language! Every teacher was able to create interesting lessons in order to improve every aspect of Russian. The book provided by the school contains all the main issues the students should work with. The hospitality of my hostfamily was absolutely wonderful, really sweet atmosphere! They made me feel like home! Of course I will recommend all the excursions I’ve done to other students! Volunteers helped me to discover the city, explain everything I found interesting about the city’s history, they helped us to find things we need, joined us during out lunches and meetings, they were ready-to-help and share their know-how and souls! I will recommend the program to everyone, because the courses will help you to improve your language. The atmosphere of the city is absolutely well-coming and warm.
Christoph Wilde, Germany (2017)
My attention to this Skype course was attracted on Facebook. The whole subscription and payment process was very professional and I never had a doubt about giving my money to this institution. The Skype Language Course of ‘Enjoy Russian Language School’ is pure conversation course. The curriculum is supported by textbooks and a workbooks, which are mostly used for homework. After a 20 minutes test call my teacher, Olga, explained to me in our first lesson how the concept looks like and what we are going to do. She is very flexible in planning the lessons and the communication is always direct and easy, which perfectly fulfills my needs, because I am travelling a lot. I really enjoy the lessons, because Olga is a very smart person and able to explain everything to.
Jill Neuendorf, USA (2015)
I liked the course a lot, content of the course and its materials were excellent, the atmosphere in the class was extremely friendly and comfortable. The staff is nice, everyone was so helpful, and Petrozavodsk is a very good place to learn Russian. Thank you for a great three weeks here!!! Keep doing a great job!
Markus, Taiwan (2016)
The content of the language course was excellent! We talked in Russian a lot; my wish is to read more news and the press. Petrozavodsk is not like other cities. Here I can touch with people in real life, have closer communication. The peaceful atmosphere is suitable for calming down and takes rest, focusing on study. I can speak in Russian more fluently now! My teachers are the best!
Rahel Romer, Switzerland (2016)
I liked the atmosphere in the class: it was good, friendly and funny. I learnt a lot. I liked to have homework every day. I made the progress in every part (listening, reading and speaking). But it was too easy for me at the beginning. As to my host family I couldn’t practice my Russian because they were at home not often. But the plus was that I lived in the city center. Later I could change the host family. Russian volunteers helped me a lot, they organized some activities (cinema, sauna). I would recommend this program to other people.
Gintare Venzlauskaite, Lithuania / United Kingdom (2015)
The approach is very good – majority of essential everyday topics are covered, which is useful for daily language use. Olga is one of the best teachers I have had – engaging and encouraging approach really helped to overcome fear of spelling and making mistakes. Also, interest and questioning personally helps to make the process of learning enjoyable. Living conditions was also good. Tatyana was very nice and friendly! Volunteers were very nice and helpful. I am very happy about my chance to come here, because the school is great, town – cozy, people are super nice, teaching and administration – professional and there is plenty of stuff to see and do around the city. I would recommend this program to other people,
Paavo Pitkanen, Finland
The whole program fits my wishes and interests. Everything went the way I planned. Both teachers were wonderful and professional, I also liked the teaching materials I got here. I liked the cultural program a lot and I took part in every single even the school organized. I am very satisfied! Both coordinators were very helpful! I can say that meeting such a professional staff and teachers is one of the most remarkable part from staying in Petrozavodsk. I’m happy that I have found Enjoy Russian school in the internet!
Martin Kupferschmidt, Germany (2015)
The content of the language course was perfect, I liked my teacher as well as my hostfamily. I enjoyed staying in Petrozavodsk: nice place, beautiful nature. I found that museums wasn’t that interesting for me, because the guide spoke with us in Russian, and I didn’t understand everything. Anyway, I would definitely recommend this program to those who want to get fast progress in language with excellent teachers in the nice Russian city, which is very close to St.Petersburg.
Anabela Crepulja, Austria (2015)
It was good to get in touch with the “prostorechie” and the everyday-language in the course. Learning individually was a new experience for me and helped me to make progress, especially in speaking. The teaching material were good, especially the materials on phrases which helped me a lot to be able to understand the modern Russian. Additionally we red interesting literary texts of different foreign and Russian writers that I enjoyed a lot due to the great selection of the teacher. My host family became like a family to me. We spent lots of evenings together. I met very interesting and nice people here and they will stay in my mind forever. I enjoyed a lot the excursion to the Museum of Fine Arts. The National Museum was outstanding as well – you can loose yourself for days there.
Thomas Stowell-Smith, UK (2015)
The contest of the course was excellent. We were taught a good mixture of vocabulary and grammar. The contest was very applicable to every day life. Quality of teaching was also excellent. We were encouraged to speak a lot and to express ourselves in Russian which I really enjoyed. I really enjoyed the place where I stayed. Host family was nice and did everything they needed to. Also they were not invasive which I liked. The volunteers were extremely nice and willing to help. All the administration was good and I experienced no problems at all. I thoroughly enjoyed my time studying at the school and have gained a lot of good memories. I would highly recommend this school to other students. Petrozavodsk is a nice small town so there is a good environment to learn Russian.
Steven Barclay, UK (2015)
The contest of the lessons was very helpful, especially speaking practice. I was very impressed with the teaching and the teacher responded well to our requests and needs. I liked my host family. The flat was very comfortable and the family was very kind and helpful and provided plenty of food. The school was very helpful in arranging special cultural activities that I requested personally. All the volunteers were nice and ready to help. It would be nice to have more Russian practice.
David Hunt, UK (2015)
The contest was goof – we had an exam for university and Olga made a special curriculum to help us to prepare. I liked my host family and the location was nice – it was easy to get to school. Unfortunately our cultural program was limited because of the weather, but I enjoyed walking the streets and visiting the museum. The volunteers were excellent. Jana, Anna, Anastasia, Sasha, thank you!
Sarah Pickles, UK (2015)
I liked the program that was an excellent mix of vocabulary and grammar. I learned a lot of new phrases in Russian. My teacher was very friendly and patient. She explained everything very clearly. At the same time the tuition was very adaptable. Our teacher mixed the text book with printed materials when we wanted to focus on something specific. I loved my host family – great room, great food, kind people and accommodating. Staying with them was also helpful in language practice. I would definitely recommend this course to other students!
Jamie Allan, Scotland (2015)
This is my third time back. I would happily recommend the course to other students. The contest of the language course was excellent. All my wishes were met. My teacher Olga was great. She showed patience despite my being a very poor student. All other teachers were superb as well. The course book were well put together. I only wish that food/drink section to be put earlier in the course, so students could know what to order when they eat out. My host family (Nadezhda and Ivan) are very hospitable. I liked the cultural program and all the volunteers were friendly. I would have liked to go to visit the Solovki but unfortunately it is not possible in early spring. As a whole, I loved the city and the people and I consider myself privileged to have been able to visit it.

It’s a very common souvenir that people bring home from Russia🇷🇺. […]
