The Russian language needs of the international business communities of St. Petersburg are quite different from other language students. For business executives and professionals working in St. Petersburg it is a real challenge to devote enough resources to their Russian language studies, either before or after working hours. At the same time, some working knowledge of Russian is absolutely essential when living in Russia.
While non-working spouses are happily spending their daytime in the classroom, the situation is not so straightforward for foreign specialist with a tight schedule. This is why we have developed courses with less focus on grammar spending more time with speaking and understanding the spoken word.
Executives and professionals arriving in St. Petersburg will often use the teaching services of a freelancer, most of the time "inherited" by his or her predecessor. We strongly believe that learning Russian at a specialised language school has several advantages over finding a private teacher by recommendation:
- Our teachers are regularly assessed by our director of studies through a system of classroom monitoring, student feedback, teacher training seminars and performance appraisal meetings.
- Our school in St. Petersburg is a member of the International Association of Language centers, which carries out independent, regular inspections.
- We perfectly understand that our clients sometimes wish to change their teacher to see a different face. This is totally normal and does not create any problems.
- Our school is fully licensed, which means that we operate strictly under the Russian tax legislation, and that course expenses are officially recognised costs.
