Expatriate Course

Due to constant international trade and economic development, St. Petersburg has become a multinational city with an ever-growing number of international and joint enterprises and firms. For many foreigners living and working in St. Petersburg, it can be stressful and challenging. Learning the Russian language is one of the toughest problems foreigners face in the country. Therefore, Derzhavin Institute provides a wide range of Russian Language Courses specifically aimed at expatriates wishing to learn Russian.

For all those working and living in St. Petersburg, we offer year-round flexible programmes at special prices.

You can attend the Institute in the morning and afternoon and study with other students in groups according to your level. If you work during the day, we can offer you evening courses in mini-groups as well as individual lessons. Our teachers can also give Russian Language classes at your workplace or at home.

Please see the list below for more details and prices.
