LIDEN & DENZ LANGUAGE CENTRE MOSCOW Russian Courses in Moscow, Russia
About LIDEN & DENZ LANGUAGE CENTRE MOSCOW
Russia is one of the biggest and fastest growing emerging markets in the world. Working with Russia or inside Russia requires a good working knowledge of the language. Without it, many doors will remain closed. But Russia is also something else.
The Liden & Denz Language Centre in Moscow offers Russian language courses for academic, leisure or business purposes. Our internationally accredited language school combine excellent teaching with modern facilities and a competent organisation. It is our aim to familiarise all our students with today’s Russia, in terms of language, culturally and emotionally.

General & Intensive
Our Language Centre mainly specialises in short-term courses, group or individual. The minimum length of a group course (20 or 25 lessons per week) is two weeks and of an individual (15, 20, 30 or 40 lessons per week) - one week. However, course length is not restricted. Classes normally take place in the morning from 10.00 a.m. until 02.00 p.m. One lesson lasts 50 min.
Both our centres are accredited preparation centres for the TRKI state exam (Test of Russian as a Foreign Language). The TRKI is recognized by the Russian Federal Ministry of Education and can be taken individually at the State university in St. Petersburg or Moscow. Each test consists of 5 components (written and oral).
WHAT ACCOMMODATION DO WE OFFER?
The choice of the right type of accommodation is an important decision as students typically spend more time at home than in the classroom.
We understand that people have differing needs and interests. For this reason we offer several accommodation options enabling each student to choose the most appropriate type.
Home-stay (host family) accommodation: providing the best opportunity to get to know the Russian way of life and offering the best possible language practice. Home-stay is available with breakfast only or half board (full board on weekends).
Shared flatsoffer an independent lifestyle at very affordable prices. This is a popular option for young people and university students. Shared flats are self catering.
Studio apartments offer higher standards than shared flats and guarantee full privacy and independence. Studios are on request only. Our accommodation officer will help to find an appropriate apartment either in St.Petersburg or Moscow.
Hotels of all categories can be booked directly with the school. While hotel rates in Moscow are quite high year round, St. Petersburg offers good deals – particularly in the mini-hotel sector. Hotels can also be booked without course. This is not possible for other accommodation options.
