I had a fantastic experience in Derzhavin Institute. i took a standard groupe course + intensive course. Despite of little time spent there (only two weeks) i can confidently say that my level of russian has improved. i was really impressed by friendly atmosphere and by high professionalism of all staff. In this international system you can meet people from all over the world! The institute is localized in good position, very close to metro station and center city. Higly recommended!!!
