The Russian language course programme consists of three parts – language classes, a cultural programme and an additional study tour to St Petersburg, Russia (optional). It is a well-established fact that the best way to learn a foreign language is to visit a country where it is spoken. Estonia is on the threshold of the Russian Federation and the school takes advantage of this proximity. Estonia’s historical connection provides students with one of the best opportunities to learn Russian in the region. Our close ties with our neighbour allows us to make full advantage of resources from Russia – the teachers in the course are all native speakers of Russian with degrees from universities in Moscow and St Petersburg, and they all use the most up-to-date teaching materials published in Russia.
