We have learnt from our numerous experiences that the minimal time you will need to get acquainted with the new environment is two weeks. However, if time allows, we strongly recommend you to stay for at least four weeks. The longer you stay, the more progress you will make, obviously. Beginners will need six to twelve weeks in order to develop the language skills necessary to communicate in an everyday situation, and to be able to read and understand texts.
Keep it in mind that the Russian langage is a complicated and difficult language to learn for foreigners and you will need to work hard on your progress. We require that you are familiar with the Russian alphabet prior to departure. This will facilitate your immersion into the Russian culture, and is, in fact, an easy task.
