Founded in 2003, Educa Russian Language Center has for more than ten years enjoyed the reputation of one of the leading Language Schools, especially in the field of Russian as a Foreign Language. Apart from carefully and accurately designed programs and courses we owe our success to full and precise quality control which ensures our staff to anticipate, meet and exceed the expectations of our students.
The main objective of all our courses is to teach our students to freely and confidently communicate in Russian language, general or specific, spoken or written. Therefore we use the communicative approach as base when developing our courses. We don’t teach listening, speaking, reading, writing, grammar and vocabulary independently; they only come in a highly integrated program determined by the communicative situation students are currently learning to act in. On the other hand our programs are entirely focused on particular target language, so you’ll never have to learn something you don’t need.
All of this together with constant interaction of students among themselves and the careful guidance rather than domination of the teacher ensures that even Beginners start actually speaking Russian from the very first lesson. Still, however fluent Russian one speaks, it’s impossible to truly master the language without the understanding of the country where the language is spoken and its people.
To help our students discover the “mystery of Russian soul” we offer a wide range of different social activities from classic bus and walking tours of Saint-Petersburg and suburbs to informal activities like picnics, cooking, clubbing etc.
