Moscow - Homestudy
St. Petersburg

Lodging & Arrival Information - Kiev, Ukraine  

Homestays are the preferred option for most students, and all families are regularly inspected. Students can expect to find clean rooms, that, by Russian standards, are spacious. Rooms are furnished with one bed or sofa bed, wardrobe, desk with light, chair, and a mirror. Bathroom and kitchen are shared with the family. Maximum travel time to the school is 50 minutes, average travel time door to door is 40 minutes.

Participants specify the preferred type of host-family when signing up. These preferences will be taken into consideration, but we cannot make any guarantee that they will always be met absolutely. Families are usually selected without any foreign language knowledge (English speaking Russians are desperate for English conversation). However, if a participant feels uneasy about this approach, we will try to find him/her a place to live where English is spoken. Experience shows that even absolute beginners will be able to communicate after the first few days.

It is obvious that a certain flexibility and tolerance on the part of the guest will be necessary for a successful stay and integration. Russia is a country with basic infrastructure. Power or hot water failures are not uncommon. However, justly famous Russian hospitality will play its part in overcoming most of these problems.
Other Accommodation Hotel and apartment lodging is also available upon request and at additional cost.
