I was a student in Sep’ 2017 – I took 4 lessons a day, for a week & lived in the school’s accommodation.
From the first minute I felt all my concerns were pushed to the side & that I’m in the hands of professionals J I will elaborate:
A. Firstly I was asked for my goals (Speaking, Grammar, Writing, Reading, Pronunciation).
That was great, since my aim was to focus on speaking Russian. Grammar, for the sake of the matter, is a mountain I don’t even going to try and concur. The teachers modified the syllabus for it.
