Language Link has been providing top-quality instruction in foreign languages ever since the creation of the company in 1975. Since July 1994, Language Link has opened and operated language schools throughout Russia. Our school in St Petersburg was opened in 1996 - we offer classes in English and Russian as a foreign language for our international students.
Language Link in St Petersburg is located right in the heart of the city. The school is situated just off Nevsky Prospect, behind Kazansky Cathedral. The metro station Nevsky Prospect is a few minutes walk away. All the classrooms are modern and well equipped. Our Russian language teacher graduated from the State Pedagogical University Herzen has been working for Language Link since 2007.
We are happy to offer the following courses:
