TRKI exams in February
Did you know that you can take an official TRKI test in our school? The nearest exam dates are February, 27 and 28.

Who our courses are aimed at?

Derzhavin Institute provides a variety of Russian language programmes in St. Petersburg - long and short-term Russian language courses, intensive and individual tuition - for foreign students of all levels of language proficiency and backgrounds. Whether you are a beginner wanting to learn basic Russian language skills, an advanced student aiming for a top-level qualification in Russian language or to pass the state exams (TORFL Test of Russian as a Foreign Language), or an executive who needs to improve your standard of Russian language for professional purposes, Derzhavin Institute has the Russian course you need.

Why are we different from other schools?

For over 14 years we’ve been teaching Russian, we made several observations that might seem obvious but that led us to the serious changes in the type of programmes that we offer:

  • students are all different
  • they have their own learning aims
  • they have different reasons to study Russian
  • and they are interested in different aspects of the language

And in 2018 we decided to offer a new system of the language course Smart Immersion Programmes.

 

Advantages and Benefits of Smart Immersion Programme

  • More flexible system: You can take groups courses 20, 24 or 28 lessons per week
  • More personalized system: According to your individual learning aims, you can add specific immersion modules to your Standard course to make your own Smart Immersion Programme
  • More combinability in the immersion modules: The convenient timetable of the immersion modules allows you to combine two language or specialization immersion modules - that would help you get more even within a very short period of stay.

How does this work?

  • Step 1. Choose the Standard group course
  • Spet 2. Add one or two Immersion modules depending on your needs
  • Spet 3. Make your own Smart Immersion Programme of 24 or 28 lessons per week

The course tuition fee includes:

  • Tuition as specified
  • Written and oral placement test
  • First coursebook
  • Certificate on course completion
  • Student ID
  • Welcome information folder
  • Free unlimited e-mail and Internet access
  • Supplementary tea and coffee
  • Some social activities (Russian Craft Lesson, Russian Song Lesson, Russian Film Screening)
  • For those who take course of 28 lesson - 2 lessons of guided self-learning
