General Information for Russian Language Courses in Russia, Ukraine or Latvia


Courses
You can study Russian or Ukrainian for the number of weeks of your choice and decide on how and when you want to study. If you have any special requirements we will be glad to suggest the most suitable course for you. Following completion of your course, you will receive a certificate. You will also have the opportunity to take a test to assess your language skills. American students are offered credits following completion of a course providing special conditions have been fulfilled.
Individual courses are available all year round and you can start whatever date suits you. If you want to have a special focus in your individual studies, for instance business, economics, law, conversation or mass media, we can arrange this.
Group courses normally comprise tuition in groups consisting of 2-12 persons. The size of the group depends on which university you choose to study at. You will usually receive 20 lessons per week (four lessons per day). These courses are available for students of all standards of Russian and Ukrainian and generally start every week.

Tuition
All tuition is given by qualified and certified university teachers. One lesson normally equals 45 minutes*. Tuition is not offered on Saturdays/Sundays and national holidays. Course literature can normally be borrowed or bought at low prices though you should have your own dictionary with you.
* In Moscow one lesson equals 40 minutes.

Accommodation
The range of accommodation on offer varies but you can usually choose from staying in a student room, with a family, in an apartment or at a hostel and hotel. Accommodation is generally reserved, by the language institute, from Sunday prior to the start of the course until Saturday following the end of the course. Extra nights of accommodation before and after the course can be arranged at an extra fee.
For those just wishing to visit the Black Sea rather than study we can offer accommodation in a well located university hostel perfect for exploring Odessa and the Back Sea coast.

Prices, course package
Course packages include tuition, invitation (as the basis of your visa application) and normally accommodation and transfer from airport or railway station. In many cases excursions are included as part of your studies.
The course fee does not include meals (except when staying with a family, which includes breakfast), tickets, insurance, visa fees and international language exams.
Current prices are given at AMBergh´s official websites or can be given on request. Prices are valid until further notice. The price is fixed, unless otherwise agreed, when the registration has been confirmed, with reservation for price changes beyond AMBergh´s control, such as currency fluctuations above 5%, tax raises and other unforeseen costs. Prices are updated continuously. Group discounts are available.

Registration
Registration should be made in writing using a downloaded registration form, or directly via our website. Please send us a scanned document or photocopy of the information pages of your passport including your photo.
If you want a visa invitation we must receive a completed registration and payment of the registration fee at least eight weeks before the start of the course. Otherwise we cannot guarantee that you will receive your visa in time.
Please contact us as soon as possible as availability of places is limited, especially during summer. Registration and reservation of a place on the course and accommodation can only take place once the registration fee has been received. The registration form should be completed in detail to help us make sure that you get the right kind of tuition that meets your own particular needs.
A booking is binding once the registration fee has been paid.
Final payment for the course package should be made no later than 20 days before the start of the course. In some cases, payment can be made later than 20 days before the start of the course but this need to be agreed with us first. Please contact us for further information.
Failure to complete payment leads to automatic cancellation of the course.
