Feedback from Students
I studied Russian in Denmark for about a year before I arrived in Bishkek, but while studying at The
London School I gained the confidence to converse with native Russian speakers and to really express
myself in Russian. The curriculum is very intensive and built around the needs of the individual student.
You set the pace of your own classes and decide what subjects are important for your studies. The
teachers are great at what they do and I felt that they all love teaching foreigners Russian. The
office was always ready to help me with any problems I might have concerning classes, visas, travelling
around the country and just about anything else. Most importantly, I never felt alone. I can warmly
recommend studying at The London School to all other Russian students looking for a great learning
and cultural experience.
I hope this suffices. If there is anything else you think I should mention, do not hesitate to let me know.
"The teachers coordinate joint classes very well and were attentive to my needs. I am an anthropologist studying post-Soviet notions of morality. The administration was extremely helpful linking me with local villages in the Issyk-Kul Region where I could conduct research. I felt very welcome in my host family and they took care to speak Kyrgyz to me. Kudos to Kendje for providing such great services!"

For me, this was the first time learning Russian. Since I hadn't heard Russian before coming here, I have covered a lot in my 3 week stay here. The staff has been so kind and made me feel so welcome. I was afraid of coming here originally but my homestay was very helpful and I felt comfortable.

"I've learnt to express myself much better in Kyrgyz. My homestay was very good. Everyone was so friendly and the food was excellent! As far as I know, the London School delivers possibilities not found anywhere else in Central Asia. Nowhere else can a traveller find immersion language programs in local villages at less than 4 dollars a day."
