This is the second time I visit PRIVET-language School and I again have very much enjoyed my stay in Kaliningrad. Your fine school with it taylor made teaching methods allowed me to progress notably during these four weeks. I am now able to understand basic conversations as well as to express myself in most of the situations a tourist might get confrontated with: ask for directions, book a table and order in a restaurant, tell the cabdriver to put on the taxi-meter (so no more “hope and see” if it comes to know the fare for a taxi).

In other words: I felt very comfortable at PRIVET school and as tourist in Russia. However, I also learnt that Russian needs the very same effort as any other language, so I might be back soon! Special thanks to Marina and Inga for never loosing patience during these days. Take care and see you soon again! Carlo

P.S. Instead of the 50 ruble telephone card I would suggest that you offer the arriving (thirsty) students 1 bottle water and may be some cakes or fruits(at their room).
