Student testimonials

I went on a low season month and I was assigned to a group that was a bit below my level. However local management supported me with individual lessons to complement this situation. My final impression is VERY SATISFIED


Maria was very helpful and welcomed me here. Lyubov and Zlata are great teachers. Very happy to see Nadya. I stayed with my host family before and love them. They are great! Tatyana treats me like family!

I first stayed in Liden&Denz this year and I loved how the school has an international vibe while teaching Russian with care and professionalism. In just two weeks i was able to talk russian more fluently and grammatically correct. Moreover, accommodation provided by the school was perfect and close to the school. Choosing a host-family can be challenging sometimes but the school is there to assist you with any queries that buzz your mind.


Lessons are very stimulating and interesting, I’m so satisfied with everything has been taught us. Nadia is the best Russian teacher I’ve ever had! My host family has been very welcoming and kind
