Learn Russian and enjoy the many attractions that Crimea has to offer!
As my former students will attest, knowing how to speak Russian can open up a world of opportunities both professionally and personally.
Hi, my name is Vera Fedorovna, and Ive been teaching Russian as a foreign language for most of my life. Without a doubt, the Russian Language Immersion Program in Crimea is one of the most innovative and successful programs with which Ive ever been associated.
If youd like to learn Russian from experienced instructors in a friendly atmosphere, then this program, which is part of the International Language School of the Heidelberg House, is the perfect choice for you.
The benefits of learning Russian are innumerable. Once youve added Russian language proficiency to your resume, opportunities with government agencies as well as with multinational corporations and international organizations will open up just as they have for countless others. And, perhaps most importantly, you will have enriched your life.
Take a beginners course or hone your already acquired Russian language skills. The school offers unique and affordable programs for many levels of learners.
Intensity = Fun + Learning!
As a student in Heidelberg Houses Russian Language Immersion Program, youll experience two to five weeks (or more!) of intense language acquisition. The length of your stay is up to you.
Monday through Friday mornings, for 1525 hours, you and your fellow students will meet with instructors. As you complete each lesson, your skill in using Russian in everyday situations will growand so will your confidence.
As a beginner, youll master the basics of the Russian language. As an intermediate or upperlevel student, youll increase and polish your skills.
The courses ultimate goal? To provide you with a solid foundation in Russian in the shortest time possible.
That does not mean, however, that your education will be cursory or incomplete. Quite the opposite, in fact. Youll learn Russian across all four language skillslistening, speaking, reading and writing.
Our group courses have low studentteacher ratiosonly three to four pupils per instructor. With classes that small, youre sure to receive plenty of personal attention.
What better way to learn Russian (or any language, for that matter) than through private, oneonone instruction with a fluent, trained professional? Our individual courses, however, arent only private; theyre also tailor made. That is, our instructors customize courses to meet your specific needs.
Heres how it works. Once you and your private tutor determine your specific goals for the course and establish your preferred instructional methods, you work together to develop a curriculum that meets those goals and decide upon a pace thats right for you.
With oneonone private instruction, theres no classroom competition and no anxiety in front of classmates. Youll learn Russian your way, at your own speed.

Where to learn Russian? The charming and amiable atmosphere of Simferopol, where the Language Immersion Program is located, ideally matches the schools spirit and aim. The capital of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, Simferopol is a city that welcomes foreigners, as does the republic as a whole. You wont feel out of place among our friendly residents, particularly after youve picked up a little Russian.
Additionally, the Russian spoken here is classicthe easiest and best, if I may say so, for anyone to learn. (For more details about the benefits of learning Russian in Simferopol, see Why in Crimea?)
I am biased, its true. I love this city and this republic in which I live and work, in part because I am certain your experience living and learning here will change your lifefor the better.
If you have any questions about our program, please do not hesitate to contact us. We will happily discuss the details: curriculum, length of stay, cost, accommodations whatever subject that is of concern.
Who knows? Perhaps someday soon, as I cross the beautiful gardens where many of our students gather, Ill see you there, seated on a bench, laughing in the sun. Ill smile and wave, and just maybe a few wordsin Russianwill pass between us.
I look forward to that day and hope to hear from you soon.
