It was a great opportunity to learn Russian language for me during this 3 month having mini group classes. I really appreciate Mrs Ludmila’s work who is an excellent professor and she tried hard for teaching Russian. I am sure and confident that my knowledge will help me for communicating with Russian tourists now.

Kjetil Skogland Olsen Norway

Both my wife and I very much appreciated learning through your school and we feel that our skills significantly developed in Russian. We were very impressed by the professionalism of your Russian teachers as well as the «behind the scenes» preparations they made as we transitioned from one teacher to another for several month of our study, they made sure that our education continued with little overlap. Thanks a lot!

Joseph Sumi USA

I spent only 3 weeks in ECHO EE and I feel that I learnt Russian a lot. From the beginner level at the beginning I am able to sufficiently communicate, which is exactly what I wanted. I definitely recommend individual lessons to everybody who needs fast progress in Russian. My both teachers Ljudmila (mini group classes) and Olga (individual lessons) were great, always very helpful, ready to advise you any time and they do a very good job. My hostfamily — a lady called Natalia was very welcoming, cooking me nice dinner every day. Thank you, everybody, one more time for making me feel welcome :-)

It was a great experience to learn Russian at your school and with my Russian teacher Olga. She is a very good instructor, classes are quite dynamic and the fact that mini groups are small make it easier for the students to learn. Thank you! Greetings! Raimundo

Firstly I would like to thank you and your Russian school for the classes, in general Olga for teaching me. I know that I’m not always the most easy student to deal with but she managed to survive me those 3 weeks. I hope she enjoyed it too for having me as a student, as it pleased me to have her as a teacher. The first lesson of this year in my University we had to tell, in Russian of course, about our vacantions. I told my coursemates about the wonderful city of Kyiv and how I enjoyed your language school! I don’t know is they consider to have classes in Kyiv once, especially because we are going to study in Piter from january till may. So that means our Russian language should be better already. But I still hope they’ll go to Kyiv anyway and I definitely shall recommend your language school!

Luuk Brouwers student, Denmark

I would recommend Echo to anybody, of any age, who wants to learn Russian or Ukrainian, no matter what level you’re currently at. I came to the school with a relatively high level of Russian, and the course helped me improve in all the areas that I was a little weaker in, and I still learnt many new things. I also studied Ukrainian for 2 weeks from scratch and I feel that I reached a very decent level, even just in that short amount of time.
The teachers at this school are very friendly, and very patient and helpful, no matter what level you’re at — they will try their best to help you learn the language and learn about the culture behind the language, and frequently will even help you, over and beyond what is required in lesson time. The school also goes out of their way to help you settle in Kiev and will answer all questions you may have about the city, from how to use the public transport, to the most interesting places to see in the city — and they will make you feel extremely welcome as soon as you arrive. Going abroad, especially alone, can be quite daunting, but Echo helped make my stay in Ukraine relaxed and stress-free, as I knew that there would always be someone happy to help if I came up against any issues.
I have also learnt so much about the culture of Ukraine, and also Russia during my time studying at Echo, and my time there in Kiev has been truly invaluable. If I get the chance to return again in the future, I will do so without hesitation!

Kimberley Wysocki student, University of Oxford, UK

I really enjoyed studying Russian with Echo. All the information you send me about Kiev and Ukraine were very helpful. I also would like to say that I loved my Russian classes with Yevgenia! It was a great (but unfortunately to short) time and I really learned a lot. She is an amazing teacher!  I would have liked to continue classes, but as I have to work here now, I can not go on. Anyway if I have the chance to study Russian again I will contact you for sure. Thank you for the nice time,  Elena

Elena Rother Germany

Thank you for provided Russian course. It has been a very good experience for me. I think that these three weeks have been very useful to improve my Russian language skills. I suppose that in the future I’ll return to Kiev for sure, and so I’ll book again another intensive Russian course.

Marzio Valdambrini Italy

I really enjoyed my Russian language course with Olga. She did a great job! I learned exactly what I needed to survive here on the street. And beyond this she gave me a deep insight in your country and how things are working here. So the course package was perfect for me. And of course I want to highly recommend the services of echoee to everybody who wants to learn the Russian language and who wants to get a better understanding of the people living here. A big thank you!

Heiko Wohr Germany

My knowledge of Russian language was Lower-Intermediate and I was planning to take the TORFL 1 certification level exam. EchoEE school supported me both with Skype Russian lessons (Tamara) and with private lessons (Olga) during my three-week stay in Kiev, which was also organized by the school.  The results were very good, I feel pretty fluent in Russian and I passed the TORFL-1 exam in Kiev with flying colors. The EchoEE school will most likely be my first address when I will start preparing for the TORFL-2.

Diego Amicabile Germany

Russian course was very helpful. Liudmilla is a very good Russian teacher. She identifies grammar shortcomings at the speed of light and will put them right like a targeted missile.  Thank you very much and greetings to Liudmilla!

Wolfgang Matt

I spent a very good time in Kiev. I have been very satisfied with your Russian school and will recommend your school to all my friends. If I have a more time I will be glad to continue study Russian language in Kiev. Great pluses of your Russian school: location of school is very good +quality of Russian teacher (tamara) +big plus is a very small study group (I could work more and we could learn faster because we weren?t slow downed by others students whose are weaker in Russian language),+ your work I mean your
highly professional approach (I decided to go with your school because your professional approach and now I am sure that I made very good decision), + certificate, which could be useful for me in future. Thanks a lot once again!

Richard Durech student, Bratislava, Slovakia

I am satisfied with my Russian studies. Of course it is a short period, but I think I got some parts activated, which I already had forgotten. I think 4-5 Russian lessons per day is a good amount, when it is private teaching. It is the time you are able to concentrate in an intensive Russian studying. The level of teaching was quite good for me. There were some parts, which I already knew and some parts which were new. So, it was not too easy, nor too difficult to me. Thank you.
