Student Testimonials

The language lessons are given only by professional teachers. In my experience, Liden & Denz in St. Petesburg is one of the best language school I have ever been to. I strongly recommend the school.

Everything works perfectly; the teaching, the general organization, the several activities after the lessons, the kindness of the managers, the atmosphere and even the location. Absolutely recommended.

I went to one of the best language schools in the world and excellent teachers helped me to improve my Russian. I am very happy that I met all of you and I will always remember you and our amazing time together. I want to thank you with all my heart.

I came to Moscow, Russia last September to study at Liden & Denz in Moscow for one month. I arranged the time of my visit so that I could take the TELC exam in Russian on my last day of class. It was a fabulous experience - I received my certificate of A1+ and I passed the TELC exam at level A1.
