Our participants talk about Exlinguo Novosibirsk

US participant giving a review of Exlinguo Novosibirsk intensive Russian course

The Exlinguo program in Novosibirsk is simply excellent. If you are on the fence, do it! I have spent time in several immersive language institutes, in Germany and in the United States. Exlinguo is as good as, or better than, all that I have experienced. I especially appreciated the combination of fun and rigor. The staff create a very pleasant, productive environment in and out of the classroom. Small class sizes allowed me to form a real relationship with the teachers. Breaks and extracurricular excursions become opportunities to continue conversations and "test drive" new vocabulary. The administrative staff in the center were charming. They were happy to provide conversation along with assistance with any logistical issues. In this pleasant environment I often stopped noticing how rigorous my learning regime was. I headed to Siberia looking for a very intense program. I was not disappointed. My courses were well-structured and demanding. With help from a wonderful host family I continued practicing my conversation skills everyday at breakfast and again at dinner. All in all a great experience.
