Student Feedbacks About Russian Courses


IQ Consultancy is a highly professional language school. I enjoyed a 2 weeks immersion course and because of their outstanding organization, I did not have to bother about anything but studying. The approach by IQ Consultancy was very favourable for me, as it is supporting the working professional, who needs to learn Russian for business reasons.
Read more My thanks go particularly to Natalia from IQ Consultancy staff for the entire organization in all details before, during and after the course (sightseeing programmes, cultural events etc), and to the highly qualified Tutors like Nina, Katya, Anna, and Marina, who were never getting tired to encourage and motivate me throughout the 2 weeks. The teaching methods are modern and forward going orientated, with the right mix of grammar and Russian-in-use, enabling the student to speak very quickly. I will be back! Thank you all (Beate, Russian Immersion Course.. Switzerland)

Read more I attended several weeks of IQ Consultancy’s mini group Russian classes, and I found the course an unusually helpful and pleasant way of developing my (rudimentary) Russian skills. I was never a fan of studying languages in a classroom (I studied Russian in high school for three years), but IQ Consultancy's teaching methods were challenging, thorough and engaging. Big thanks to my wonderful teacher Katja for her patience and professionalism! I hope to return and pick up where I left off sometime in the near future.

Несмотря на то что, мне было очень трудно, мне понравилось. Моя преподавательница – Катя – очень весёлая, с ней было просто и приятно.

Read more I followed an intensive tailor-made course at IQ Consultancy with a purpose of refreshing my Russian knowledge that I almost forget due to not practicing the language over the years. The service that I received at IQ Consultancy was excellent straight from the beginning; starting with the advices on the type of course that I could follow, through a very convenient schedule to the program content perfectly adjusted to my interests. After this course I reached the intended level and I was able to communicate the way I couldn’t before. In addition, the personnel is extremely friendly, which makes a nice contrast with the general relationships that you get with Russian people. I strongly recommend this school if your objective is to learn Russian language quickly in a pleasant atmosphere.

I have been a student at IQ-consultancy since April 2010. For me the school and the language course were good with high focus on speaking skills and how to learn the everyday Russian language. The teachers and attitude from all the staff was good and I learned the basic Russian Language.

I have had a pleasure to study Russian language at IQ Consultancy language school and I have to say that their teachers are absolutely fantastic. They don't only teach you Russian, because "it is their duty", but I feel that it is their passion to get someone taught Russian.
Read more I really loved every single minute and day when I was studying Russian language with them, either by having a private tutor or in mini groups. Recently I joined two weeks intensive course in a mini group and I was very happy with the result what I was able to achieve. I can strongly recommend intensive course in mini groups.

I had the pleasure of attending a three week individual course at IQ Consultancy in August 2014. Based on my proficiency test and taking account of my wishes, the school set up an individually tailored program for me with three different teachers, each teaching different aspects of Russian. Some of the topics covered were grammar (especially verbs of motion), news, politics and economics, and literature and film. Thus the program was quite varied and was well suited to my individual needs, enabling me to expand my supply of useful phrases, speech constructions and vocabulary.
Read more The teachers and staff were very friendly and at the same time highly professional, and thus provided a pleasant atmosphere. I really enjoyed the lessons, because the teachers were well prepared and their approach was aimed at making the student take an active part in exercises and discussions, thereby providing me with a lot of practice of speaking the language. Also, the teachers had a good sense of humour, which made the lessons very pleasant, and they were always ready and helpful to answer my questions and providing me with useful tips and information. All in all I can highly recommend IQ Consultancy to anyone who wants to study Russian in St. Petersburg!

What can I say, except thank you. A big thank you!! I am now confident and ready to welcome my first Russian clients. I am now not scared to go and speak to people (Like at Olymp fitness center, shop, restaurant). Organization was perfect (all the organization), my two teachers (Katia and Ania) really understood what were important for me and surely slide lessons to my target.

So professional. I really appreciate Katia and Ania way of teaching. I would be proud to have them in my team!! Tomorrow (Friday, 21st March) will be my two last lessons in your school and to be honest I am already feeling sad....because school, Katia, Ania were part of my Russian family. Но, это так! I think two weeks are enough for a student (сорок года) like me. I really worked hard (everyday....) and all the day: Morning with Tatiana (host family), all the day at school, during lunch (I used to spoke with people at restaurant), in the evening again with Tatiana, at Olymp, at the cinema (where I fight to understand how to pick up my 3D glasses) I will also bring my family for a short trip in order to show to them where I lived for two weeks, how your town is lovely and rich in history. What else? (Thanks to George Clooney) Мне нравится IQ Consultancy School!!!

I have attended a Russian Course in August at the IQ Consultancy School of S.Petersbourg and I have really enjoyed the course.
Read more It was during 1 week (individual lessons of 2 hours every day): the teacher, Miss Katya, was very clever and well prepared, with an attitude very proactive and nice which allowed me to improve my Russian even in a few days.

I had the pleasure of taking one-to one Russian lessons with IQ Consultancy. The lessons were well planned and structured and the teacher carefully considered my weaknesses and adjusted the lessons also appropriately. In addition, all practical arrangements were taken very smoothly.

Read more I would like to thank you for my time at your school during June/July 2013. The lessons were really worthwhile as I was able to practice Russian conversation which improved my pronunciation and speech. I found that your teachers' approach in providing active lessons where I was required to speak for the majority of the lesson was most rewarding.

Read more I really enjoyed the course! I found the lessons well prepared and organized and what even more important: enjoyable! It was a pleasure to be on the class as teacher was very nice and friendly as much as professional and very smart. We never wasted a minute. The explanations were simple and clear and the practice very effective!

Read more IQ Consultancy managed to offer me a specialised one-to-one course which I requested at very short notice. They still managed to accommodate to my schedule and allocate some excellent teachers for me, with whom it was a pleasure to learn Russian. Although my course was short, intensive, booked at short notice, and one-to-one, IQ Consultancy still managed to maintain high quality standards. I'd definitely choose IQ Consultancy again.
Fransisco Innecco

Мне курс русского очень понравился. Моей преподавательницей была Нина, она весёлая и энергичная. Она, кстати, очень хорошо объясняет грамматику, у меня не возникало проблем. Я сказала Нине, что хотела бы почитать что-то по-русски. Было очень приятно, что она учла мои пожелания, и на занятиях мы начали читать рассказы Антона Чехова, Сергея Довлатова и других авторов. Каждый день в качестве разминки перед уроком мне нужно было рассказать какую-то новость, которую я читала предыдущим вечером. Мне очень понравилось, что я занималась индивидуально . Это очень полезно для интенсивного обучения. Я очень много говорила, и преподавательнице было удобно уделять всё внимание только мне.

Read more I signed up with IQ Consultancy in October 2012 for a 2-week intensive tutoring program. The school staff was excellent at setting up my customized program and brought in Elena as my private Russian tutor. For two weeks my Russian teacher and I went over all the topics I wanted that were specific to my business. Having a one-to-one engagement was perfect for my needs as we dived right into the material I wanted and needed and grammar was addressed as it came up in context. I highly recommend IQ Consultancy and look forward to my next trip to S. Petersburg when I hope to have another session.

A few words about Lena and our Russian classes. Елена: умная, трудолюбивая, терпеливая, серьезная, интересная, весело. Урок: серьезный, интересный, информативный, весело, уютно.
Renate Lande, Norway

I was really happy about the intensive course with my Russian teacher at IQ Consultancy language school. It was fun talking to my teacher and I felt that I made a great improvement with my Business Russian. I enjoyed the result immediately after the course by talking lot more Russian with other people in my company!
Raul, Finland

My time in your school was very interesting and effective, but same time very tough, because I was just started to learn new language. Private lessons were very good for me and my teacher was very professional and patient. We had a great time.
Read more Я была в вашей школе в июле 2012 года. Я не имела ни говорить ни писать на русском языке. Я изучаю русский, может быть через год, я уже говорю лучше. Я помню моя учительница. Чай с молоком, первая фраза которую я узнала! Спасибо! Веселого Рождества и Счастливого Нового Года 2013!
Pauliina, Finland

My company is happy with my Russian skills progress and I have shared only the good about IQ Consultancy Russian courses and St. Petersburg. I will surely speak up and pass on further recommendations within our organization if any need for Russian language immersion arises.
Read more I took an intensive immersion Russian course at IQ Consultancy. I am able to have conversation thanks to my excellent teachers of Russian - Elena and Katya. I have been to Moscow few times already and have used gained Russian skills successfully there with our company business partners.
Petr, The Netherlands

My studies with IQ Consultancy were extremely rewarding. We discussed a wide-range of topics that helped solidify my Russian language skills. It gave me practical situations through which I could activate my grammar knowledge. Moreover, I enjoyed the challenging and friendly atmosphere my instructor created at our lessons. I would recommend IQ Consultancy to any foreigner looking to study Russian!
