Comments:
The lower rating for the 'meeting at the airport' is not really anything to do with inefficiency, but rather just that i don't have much faith in the driving of Russian people! However, I was met and brought back to the airport more or less on time so it was certainly adequate enough. The lower rating for the 'Education' is because I felt that it was quite variable. I think I may have come at rather an awkward time as all the teachers changed in the second week I was there ( I believe they were all taking their holidays) and so perhaps this created a little disruption. The teaching styles were certainly very variable, which I suppose is understandable as that is the case with teachers in any country, but I thought that it would perhaps be a bit more standardised-ie, some teachers stuck very closly to a workbook that we were using while others completely ignored it so at times the pace of the class seemed very slow and at other times it seemed very fast. But I suppose that this therefore balanced out altogether. I think that as regards the oral aspect-it is vital that teachers allow the students as much opportunity to speak rather than simply allowing them to read from the textbook as the latter was often the case and I don't feel this was very helpful at times. For students such as myself who occasionally just need to be forced to speak in order that they practice speaking, this type of class didn't seem very beneficial. Neverthless, I was only there for three weeks which probably isn't a sufficient length of time to get a true feeling for the level of teaching there but I generally feel that the overall standard of teaching was high and that the staff were certainly very helpful and cooperative.

How did you find out about AMBergh?
There was some information posted on a notice board in our University languages department (Cambridge University) and a friend had also recommended Ambergh to me as he had been on a course in St.Petersburg organised by your company during the Easter holidays.

Reason for your studies:
I wanted to consolidate on the knowledge gained over my first year of studying Russian at University this past year. It was my first trip to Russia and a language school seemed like a safe enough option to ensure that I could learn from both living and studying in Russia.
