Saint Petersburg is an excellent choice for students of Russia’s historical, sociological and cultural heritage. Residents are well-known for their ‘classical’ knowledge of spoken Russian and eager to help visitors in need of language practice. The city has the services, clubs, parks and palaces to rival any European capital with a substantially lower cost of living. You will never run out of things to do in Saint Petersburg, but if you are stuck for an idea we also organize cultural programmes for our students with healthy discounts.
Architectural gems like Pskov and Novgorod are easily reachable as day trips or by overnight train and bus. Weekend excursions to Moscow, Vyborg and other destinations are frequently organized.
Over the last twenty years, we have enabled students to speak good Russian in a short period of time and have received overwhelmingly positive feedback.
Considering that there is such a significant demand for teachers around the world with TEFL job opportunities available in almost every country, TEFL therefore offers a combination of employment with a truly exceptional opportunity to experience other cultures and languages.
