Language of the Program
I am very lucky to be able to learn Russian through this program. Now I have mastered the basic Russian pronunciation and dialogue. I am glad to meet many new Russian partners and understand Russian culture. I think this project is very helpful to me!
The course quality is extremely high. I am very grateful to the professional, enthusiastic and patient teacher who taught me Russian. I had never learned Russian before, but after 10 days of study, I have been able to spell Russian words and have simple Russian conversations. The teachers are very efficient in teaching. In addition, the evening course introduced the local humanities, art and nature, and led me to learn the history and culture of Russia and St. Petersburg, from which I gained a lot.
