Our participants talk about Exlinguo Novosibirsk

Review of Exlinguo intensive Russian course by a spanish participant

I encourage all those students who are thinking on a Russian course, to go further away from Moscow and the Urals. For sure this is a less crowded, but also less dangerous city, than the capital and maybe not as beatiful as St Petersburg. But you will get the chance to meet the real Russia, to walk arround in a city at any time of the day, to go to the Opera and Ballet theatre, to the cinema... But over all, you will get a unique and personalized language course, with excelent teachers that will guide you at all time to improve your level and MAKE YOU SPEAK RUSSIAN!
