    The process of language studying is deeply interconnected with Cultural studies and is performed in small groups (maximum 6 students) by highly qualified and experienced teachers, using the up-to-date training methods. Our training system gives to the students the opportunity to begin their studies either with the beginners’ or advanced level. Each level is a complete series of classes (100-500 hours). Weekly hours of Russian as a Foreign Language tuition are fixed by a student or group (minimum 10 hours per week). Also individual programmes of studies are available.
