Learning Russia. Tours to Sochi by SPHERE Travel Company





Teaching programs are divided in sublevels which last. After finishing every sublevel and main level a student must pass an achievement test.

According to the results of the achievement test, a student continues his/her education at the next level or repeats the necessary material, if the test results are unsatisfactory.

After finishing each level a student is awarded with the Certificate of the school chosen.

Classes are formed according to academic level requirements and are composed of between 6 to 15 people. Individual classes are also available.

To provide the high standard of education all schools oblige students to attend all classes regularly, to do homework, to try speaking only Russian in the classrooms of the schools.

When the school is responsible for a schedule change, the change in time or day will be made according to the students needs or preferences.

Education in the school provides a guarantee to a student of academic benefits for work in the class and at home.
