Accommodation details

The choice of the right type of accommodation is an important decision as students typically spend more time at home than in the classroom.

We understand that people have differing needs and interests. For this reason we offer several accommodation options enabling each student to choose the most appropriate type.

Home-stay (host family) accommodation: providing the best opportunity to get to know the Russian way of life and offering the best possible language practice. Home-stay is available with breakfast only or half board (full board on weekends).

Shared flats offer an independent lifestyle at very affordable prices. This is a popular option for young people and university students. Shared flats are self catering.

Studio apartments offer higher standards than shared flats and guarantee full privacy and independence. Studios are on request only. Our accommodation officer will help to find an appropriate apartment either in St.Petersburg or Moscow.

Hotels of all categories can be booked directly with the school. While hotel rates in Moscow are quite high year round, St. Petersburg offers good deals – particularly in the mini-hotel sector. Hotels can also be booked without course. This is not possible for other accommodation options.

Facilities for disabled students

Russia lacks behind in terms of facilities for disabled students. Please seek our advice to see what we can do in this respect. 

Airport / Station transfer

We offer transportation from the airport or railway/bus station for free if you book accommodation with Liden & Denz.

Visa support

All travellers to Russia need an entry visa. On our website you can find plenty of useful information about Russian Tourist visa and Russian Student visa.

If you have a chance to study Russian in Moscow, I think Liden & Denz is a great school for any level or for any period of time. Teachers are always ready to help you and motivate you to learn more.

I've already studied for almost 6 months in Liden & Denz, but never thought to change schools to the others. Every week I meet new students around the world and it is very interesting to share & discuss opinions.

Learning Russian in Moscow: Liden & Denz, the place to be!

I attended twice the school for a period of 6 months each time (2006 and 2012).

The school is located in the center of Moscow in the Belorusskoi area. It therfore offers a great flexibility to visit the city after school.

The courses are given in small classes with young and professional teachers. They are dynamic and dedicated to see the students do progress. I was really impressed by the kindness of the staff. I felt like home ;) Really keen to do more than needed, I all the time got advices and recommendations on books.

In summary: if you need to learn or improve Russian for a short period of time or a longer one, then I would recommend this school

I have been studying at Liden & Denz for almost 2 years now. I am very satisfied with the quality of the service and with the professionalism of the teachers. The school is very flexible always trying to meet everyone's needs. Although I am a lazy student in this school I am quite motivated to do a bit more.

i attended three days out of a five day beginners class and unfortunately was and still am unable to pick up the last two days due to a constant overload of work.

i can gladly say, that these three days with your very professional and friendly teacher made it possible for me to form some basic sentences and understand bits and pieces in daily life; for this i am very thankful.

also the reception here in moscow at your language school is absolutely professional and i felt warmly welcome.

the only thing i can think of to improve is the entry door to the apartment; which has probably already been made going easyer by now. everything else exceeded my expectations by far; congratulations!

i already had and will definitely continue to spread around your address as a perfect way to learn russian.

i still hope to be able to be able to pick up more courses one day at your location in moscow.

Very satisfied by quality of teaching! I would like to thank the school for registering me and finding a family for me within 48 hours. I was very happy with the lessons and the instructor. The lessons were exactly what I was expecting. My host mother is just great! She always prepared good meals and took the time to talk to me.

I chose to come to Liden and Denz language school in Moscow for a two week language course and stay with a Russian family. I have had an excellent time, thanks to the quality of the language teaching and the warm welcome from the Liden and Denz staff and my host family. Before I left, I was sent a “bumpf” of litterature on Moscow, some pointers about Russian family life and some do's and don’t’s. Extremely useful so as not to make the silly cultural slip. On arrival at Moscow, it was great to have a friendly face to meet me to take me by car to the host family (even with an arrival at the unearthly hour of 5 am). The family have been superb. I have had a good , well equipped room and very varied meals in sufficient quantities. The family also took the time to speak to me in Russian (even though they speak fluent English) and very kindly took me on their cultural tours to see a Rachmaninov piano concert and Pushkin's play the “Queen of Spades”. There was also a good welcome at the first day of school. Registration and streamlining into the appropriate classes was quick and efficient. My teacher was highly qualified and taught in Russian (explaining for comprehension in English).The text book we used was clearly laid out and had varied types of exercises. We progressed very steadily and surely and I now feel that I have a fairly solid grammatical basis to take the language up one more level. She also used their own personalised teaching material and topical newspaper articles. She was very open to questions, both on the language and about Russia in general. She put emphasis on getting students to actively participate in the lessons, so our oral Russian progressed as well. I thought, the daily four hour lessons with a ten minute break every hour was a good realistic rythmn. The general support from the language school for the welcome and introduction, little problems and queries were excellent. For example, they helped me to contact the airport for my lost luggage and order me a taxi. All in all a great stay and learning experience. Thank you.

I liked to be there, because everything was wonderful! All teachers have a great experience at teaching. Also, my host mother presented me some audio books and movies in Russian language.

After having visited several language schools for different languages, I claim to have some experiences in differing teaching methods and quality of teaching.

The language course itself was of high quality: the teacher explained the contents of the lessons very well, was patient and took time for the students' questions and problems. Due to that a sustainable progress in my language skills was reached.

What made the stay at Liden&Denz a little learning paradise was the fact, that the atmosphere was fantastic. The highly motivated and skilled team was always kind and willing to help, when I had questions. All in all the organisation was perfect.

My host family was really sweet and was offering delicious Russian food.

To sum up and make the point, I already booked for my next stay at Liden&Denz and I am pretty sure that my good impressions will be reinforced by the teams!

Dear Thomas,
Thank you very much for your kind review. We are looking forward to see you again.

My host family met me very warmly. Host mother was so kind and all stories she told were very interesting. At school, we have focused on communication, so my spoken language has progressed a lot. So, I’m very satisfied with my trip.
