Russian Standard Group Course

Communicative lessons in small groups make this Russian course an enjoyable and productive learning experience. This course allows you to develop communicative skills in everyday situations and is offered all year round with 20 lessons per week.

If you wish to stay for four weeks or longer, you will move upwards as if on a spiral staircase. Basics from the previous module are repeated and expanded. This enables us to enrich the same topics from a different angle with deeper explanations, more complex vocabulary, new exercises and additional dialogues.

Our rates are degressive – for longer stays the weekly rate decreases.

Russian Intensive Group Course

Our Russian Intensive Course consists of 25 lessons per week, the first 20 lessons being identical to the Russian Standard Course.

In the additional 5 afternoon Russian lessons, communicative skills learnt in the morning lessons are activated without additional grammar. Depending on the learning level, we revolve thematically around the following blocks of topics:

  • A1 – Survival Russian, outdoor experiences (shopping, ordering food), telephone conversations (booking a table, etc.).
  • A1+/A2 – Russian customs, mentality and easy-to-understand aspects of Russian culture and history. 
  • B1/B2 – Business life, economy, politics, mass media and cultural and historical topics at a higher level.

Important: the Russian Intensive group course at Liden & Denz is recognised as Bildungsurlaub in 9 German federal states (in Berlin and Rhineland-Palatinate you need an additional 5 individual lessons per week). Important information on Russian and educational leave can be found in this overview

Group tours

All our centres offer tailor-made programmes for student or university groups. These groups arrive and depart at the same time and usually follow their own curriculum, although the level of Russian within the group does not have to be identical. Prices for such groups are very attractive, but depend heavily on the time of year, number of participants, levels and the number of accompanying group leaders.

Our offer includes transfers, accommodation in all categories and price ranges as well as a tailor-made cultural and leisure programme. Lectures on special areas of interest can also be held in languages other than Russian, and the same applies to guided excursions.

Individual Russian course

You don’t have much time but have ambitious goals for learning Russian, are highly motivated and willing to practise even after the lessons? Then book your private Russian course! Together with your teachers, you will determine your study plan with your specific learning goals. 

Individual Russian courses are offered in different intensity levels: 15, 20, 30 or 40 lessons per week. For 30 or more lessons per week, you will be taught by two different teachers.

Our rates are degressive – the price per week becomes cheaper for longer stays.
