Educational programs correspond to the level of your knowledge, your desires and goals, whereas the cast of teachers include qualified professionals with extensive experience. You will be able not only to improve your knowledge, but also to get acquainted with the traditions and culture of a foreign language you would like to learn.

Education is organized by semesters in spring and fall, each comprising 3 months and 50 academic hours. There are 6 levels of training - from “beginners” (A1) to “advanced” (C2). Groups are usually formed from 5 to 12 people. All the training materials are already included in the price. The schedule depends on the students themselves. Classes are usually held twice a week in the evening time.

Participants of the courses receive a PetrSU LC certificate upon completion of each semester.
