There are many reasons to study Russian. The Russian Language is a means of international communication between nations of the Russian Federation and the CIS (Community of Independent States - former Soviet Republics).
Russian is one of the six official and working languages of the UN (United Nations). Russia's new openness has lead within the last ten years to consolidation of economical, political and cultural ties of Russia with Europe, USA and Asia. Many of the world-known literature masterpieces are created byRussian writers and poets: Griboyedov, Pushkin, Lermontov, Dostoyevsky, Turgenev, Tolstoy, Chekhov, Yesenin, Akhmatova, etc. Eventually, the Russian Language helps to approach the mysterious Russian soul.
A really good language school could come in handy to study Russian.
Liden & Denz Language Centre is a full service language school for Russian as a Foreign Language which specializes in Immersion programs offering a wide range of course options.
The school not only provides excellent teaching methods and facilities but further strives to familiarize their students with Russia, both culturally and emotionally. There is no better place to achieve this than St.Petersburg, an astonishing city of outstanding beauty, struggling and blossoming as it finds it way in the new Russia.
Liden & Denz does not offer light 'holiday' courses. All the programs are intensive, demand full participation and require a certain dose of self-discipline. However, their serious yet pragmatic approach to language teaching does not hinder them from maintaining an informal atmosphere in and around the school. Teachers, teaching plans and textbooks are all geared towards a comparatively high speed of learning.
For most levels they recommend three to twelve weeks to study Russian in a general group course or two to eight weeks for one-to-one tuition. For general group courses they use their own text book, developed by the school and regularly tested and improved. The language in the classroom is Russian, however, they encourage the use of bilingual dictionaries and the teachers will use, where needed, supplementary explanations in English, German and French.
