I liked learning the Russian step by step with noticeable progress each day. I also liked that we practiced several different things each lesson. Thank you very much for everything! I had a great time!

Richard, Switzerland

I loved my stay! I started from the very beginning and loved every minute of studies with both two teachers that I had. At the beginning I struggled with the alphabet and now I’m able to have simple, but full-time conversations in Russian – I think it’s great!

Stay tuned for a full interview with Richard about his experience!

Marianne, UK

I would like to highlight the quality of the content and the fact that these classes provide you with a great opportunity to speak Russian. The RLA Durbe’s approach to teaching is both peculiar and meaningful. All the teachers resort to the communicative method which is the best way to obtain an active knowledge of the language. Certainly, I definitely recommend it!
