One-to-One Professional Russian Language Courses: Private Russian Courses consisting of 15, 20, 30 or 40 (crash course) Russian language lessons per week, minimum 1 week. The One-to-One Russian courses are designed primarily for corporate clients, executives, government officials, interpreters and future Russia/CIS representatives. The individual approach speeds up the learning process and focuses on the needs of the particular student. The exact content of the course will be determined by the student and teacher. The student is asked to specify prior to arrival whether s/he has any particular topics/fields of interest that should be covered during the course. This provides the teacher with an idea of the participant’s goals and allows her/him to pre-select materials and establish a study plan. One-to-One participants may attend the lectures for Group Course students if their time table permits. (See Standard Russian Courses for what is included in the program cost.) One-to-One courses may start any Monday of the year. Accommodations are priced separately.

IMPORTANT – Booking Deadlines and Visa Information
The Liden & Denz school provides all participants requiring a visa with an Invitation Letter which is necessary to obtain the visa through their local Russian Consulate.
Booking deadlines for students requiring a visa to Russia: for all short–term courses (up to 4 weeks) the final booking deadline is 3 weeks prior to arrival. For all long-term courses in Russia (5 weeks and more) bookings should reach us at least 8 weeks prior to arrival.
The visa fee will depend upon the applicant’s citizenship and the local consulate’s pricing policy. Please note that it is extremely difficult and expensive to prolong a visa once in Russia so please be sure to indicate clearly the length of your stay in Russia. Most visas are valid for one entry only, multiple entry visas may be available depending on nationality. Please check with your local Russian Consulate for details regarding your specific case. Special note regarding visas: the cost of the invitation letter required for the Russian visa is included in the prices listed above. However, since the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs charges additional fees for expedited processing of the visa invitation letters, applications received within 4 weeks of travel date will incur an additional USD 150 fee.
The school also strongly recommends that participants check to see if their diphtheria vaccination is current.
