People say that Moscow never sleeps. Find out for yourself!

Come and live in the ever-changing landscape of Russia: during your language course & cultural program discover all at once Moscow of yesterday and today.

In the shadows of the Kremlin, the city arose from Soviet torpor, and is experiencing a new golden age. Moscow is at the same time in the centuries-old domes of St. Basil’s, ultra-modern sky scrapers as well as historical ones built during the Soviet era, and the immense shopping malls (Moscow has the largest shopping floor space of any European city) and the countless trendy venues for a night out!

There’s always something going on in Moscow at any time of day or night.

In Moscow, CREF uses 11 classrooms comfortably furnished. Every room is equipped with audiovisual material, and with internet access available for the teacher.

Rest rooms are provided, along with a dining area, a reading room with workstations available, and free WiFi access for our students.

CREF-Moscow is located right in the city centre, next to Lubyanka square, and within 10 minutes walking-distance from Red Square. You can get to CREF from the metro stations “Lubyanka”, “Chistye Prudy” or “Turgenevskaya”.

For learning Russian in Russia, CREF offers, in Moscow, courses held in a group format. Because the classes are held 4 hours a day, 5 days a week (20 hours a week), you will progress rapidly. The size of the group is limited (maximum 6 students) which allows you to take full advantage of your Russian courses.

The classes take place in the morning (beginning at 9:00 a.m.). Classes start every other Monday, and begin once a month for complete beginners.

The courses are available from Beginner’s to Upper Intermediate levels (A1 to B1). Upon their arrival at CREF, each student will be tested for their level and placed in the appropriate course for learning Russian in Russia.

The school was quite good. I found my trip to Russia very enlightening. Moscow is indeed a city with a great deal of cultural wealth.

I intend to return for a language study program with CREF, maybe this spring if my budget permits.

The methodology used suited me perfectly, there was nothing to change. The teacher was also very friendly and gave me a love of learning. Overall, this month with CREF has been very positive.
