Individual Russian classes

Our Individual Courses are designed for students who require a very focussed area of study. Teacher and student jointly determine the exact content of any individual course. The student is invited to specify his/her field of interests by completing the relevant parts of our online booking form, which allows us to pre-select material, establish a study-plan and prepare a specific vocabulary.
Individual classes prior to an assignment to Russia are a very effective way to prepare for an upcoming relocation. These classes are demanding and require full concentration over a prolonged period of time. Individual courses are available in varying degrees of intensity: 15, 20, 30 or 40 lessons per week. For 30 lessons or more the student is taught by two teachers. Individual courses can be booked throughout the year.
