What did you like and what you did not like?

The organization of my stay by Liden & Denz was perfect, starting from the airport pick-up, the accommodation about 10 minutes far away from the school and the offer of activities by the school! The staff were always very kind and willing to help. I enjoyed my course (level A1+/A2), though it was difficult to integrate into a class that had been running already for several months. Sometimes I had the feeling that the teacher was not willing or ready to make sure that I understand everything - if that is a conscious pedagogical choice, I think it should be made clear from the beginning!

Summary of your stay

My stay was a great occasion to deepen my knowledge of Russian and get in touch with locals in Saint Petersburg! It was well organized, with comfortable premises and friendly staff. The only difficulty I had to deal with was that my teacher took some knowledge for granted and did not take time to explain the grammar I did not know.
