Course description

Our educational centre also offers the individual tuition at the convenient time. Our teachers use the other languages on the beginner levels (English, Polish, Turkish). Later the lessons are taught only in Russian.
Individual instruction tailored to meet the needs of clients desiring a one-on-one approach to studying the Russian language.
If you learn Russian individually the advantages are obvious:
The teacher will focus on your individual demands. This means that you will have a unique opportunity to study the Russian language at a comfortable and reasonable pace.
Russian lessons can be scheduled for times that are the most convenient for the student (including weekends);
Lessons can be held in a classroom at our central school, at the student's office, or in the student's home;
The student is able to determine the level of intensity of his or her classes, as well as the number of classes per week;
An individual approach to language learning provides the student with an opportunity to build a programme that is consistent with his or her language-learning goals, preferred rate of assimilating new material and level of proficiency in the language;
Having mastered the basic rules of Russian grammar and having acquired the necessary vocabulary, you will be able to speak Russian freely in any situation.
Upon completion of the course, the student will be able to pass state certification exams and thus officially confirm his or her level of Russian language proficiency.

"Good teachers, pleasant atmosphere"

Kevin Brouwer, student from Netherlands

Very good experiences with this school. From the start there was a pleasant atmosphere right away, everybody is very friendly and helpful and the school also organizes activities outside from school. That way you get to meet other people from other groups of students as well. They also organized that I could partner up with students who wanted to learn English so that the students could help each other with their respective language. That helped me a lot.

The classes themselves were quite intensive, especially in the beginning. The classes were mainly focused on grammar, but also a lot of opportunity to actually speak and use the language. Every day there was of course homework in order to keep on learning even after classes. The teacher gave me also a lot of additional exercises and information in order for me to continue studying. This is very useful. I will maybe do another course with this school next year.

The lessons with teacher Elena was very good and I learned a lot.

The teachers are very professional.

On the other site the organisation from the top and the front office, they are very unprofessional, disorganized and posh .

The Customer care, Business to customer need to be briefed and trained.

Thanks. BR, Roberto

"Dedicated teacher and perfect experience"

VADOOD AZADEGAN, student from Norway

The location of the school is very central. Classes are very friendly and not so full so I got enough time and attention from the teacher. Also the last day the school arrange a little city tour which was really nice experience. Definitely will join the next course when I'm back in Minsk :)

"Affordable language courses with great instructor and support staff."

Cesar Terrero, student from Germany

Overall a good course with great teacher. The location is very centralized and surrounded by cafes and restaurants. Only few minutes walk from all the main areas. Study material was provided and the teacher tailored the course based on my needs. I feel I improved my comprehension of the cases and my listening/speaking.

Pros: good location, good teachers, easy to book the course and easy payment, good support staff.

Cons: The school house and classrooms are too small. The address provided by language international puts the schoolhouse in a different location in the city. Language international never informed me the starting time of day one. These two issues happened to my classmate as well.

Cons for being in Belarus:
- You need to register within 5 days with immigration and the process is not simple unless you are staying in a hotel.
- I wanted to buy a course book but the schoolhouse cannot accept payment directly, you must go pay at a bank. In my case I couldn't buy the book because the bank couldn't process the $21.00 payment.

Overall: The course was good and will do it again next year if the government makes the registration process easier (via online). I wanted to extend my course one more week but did not want to go through the difficult registration process again.

Thank you for your positive review! Your tips about the registration are very useful. Unfortunately, we do not provide the payments in the office directly, all our payments are going through the bank. We hope that when you return the next year the situation with the registration and payments will be simplified! Any way, we will be happy to see you again in our school!

"Fabulous school"

Stefano Gee, student from Australia

I really had a fantastic time at the school in Minsk.

The classes were difficult, but I felt i did improve in the time, education wise it is well worth a longer stay if you can afford at least a month would be better. Everyone at the school was easy to deal with and tried their best to help out.

I met some really kind and postive students at the school also, which helps a lot---if you are a social person, it is great to have likeminded people to go out and explore the city with and just have fun hanging out.

We also did a Bielorussian cooking class which was really great fun and now I can make some draniki, borsch and bliny. It was so much fun and educational

Also, the school is really centrally located and easy to get to.


If you want to have a positive, fun, learning experience in all aspects, I would highly recommend this school in this city.

The only negative was leaving too soon!

"It was a useful adventure"

Jesus Castilla Paz, student from Spain

The classes were good. There were not many student in the class, just four. The teacher was very helpful and provided me with useful material, on paper and electronic format, for keeping on studying Russian after the course.
The Secretariat of the school was very helpful in solving the foreigner’s registration at the Police station in Minsk and other administrative questions.
The activities for Sunday were interesting, albeit there was only one day in the week of extra school activities.
The School is well situated, in the centre of the town.
The accommodation was good, and the landlord was helpful, albeit I would have preferred to live with a family, with breakfast and dinner included at home; not just because of the meals, but to have somebody at home with whom to speak and practice some Russian.
The prices in town were cheap and the house was well communicated with the school.

"Excellent school in the center of Minsk."

Serg Belarus

The main asset of the school is their teachers which helped me not only during the classes, but also after. The school is located at the city center, so everything was accessible. Also this school is a part of big Educational Center Leader, that is why we were able to have events together with students who want to learn foreign languages. It helped me to find new local friends pretty fast.
