Dear Students and Russian Language Fans, The Derzhavin Institute has created a new type of course for those who like to study at home with a cup of tea or coffee in your hands!

It is much more effective to learn the intricacies of the Russian language with help from an instructor at Derzhavin. Within a few classes, I was much further along than where I envisioned myself being and enjoying the challenges. Having an instructor helps to focus on what’s needed for improvement, having a clear direction and creating foundational order in the structure of the language.

Nicole Gounatnis online course
I am very very very happy I did this program. I was a little worried because I wouldn’t actually be in Saint Petersburg, but I still feel like I learned so much. I feel like I really couldn’t speak Russian when I started, but now I can write 3 pages about Crime and Punishment in Russian and hold a decent conversation. The program was well organized and ran smoothly considering it was the first time online. I definitely recommend it to anyone studying Russian and if I could go back, I’d take it again.
LEAVE YOUR FEEDBACK
It was a great experience. I learned a lot and felt the progress already after a few days.
Thank you. After many years of studying Russian, I finally gained a better understanding of verbs of motion! Thank you. I learned so much new vocabulary plus I learned so much about the history of St. Petersburg thanks to my wonderful teachers.
