    Russian language School in Russia - Moscow State University

    Has anyone attended this school or one like it?

    If you did please let me know what you thought about it? Did you learn a lot and still have time for travel?

    I attended MGY last summer and was not impressed. Although the teachers were excellent the administration was somewhat "lost in Space" and a lot of my time was waste. I am currently at Language Link in Moscow and it is an excellent school and well run business.
    Toto, I've a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore.

    Moscow State University is definitely a great place to be, and there are several schools offering classes. You might also consider or who are offering classes which are bit more expensive.

    Good luck

    I was there in May. It was ok, but I heard other students complaining that they were grouped too broadly, that is a wide range of abilities within one class. I know Russian pretty well already and went there to brush up speaking by taking individual lessons, so can't say anything about classes.

    MGU is a depressing place, at least the building is in. It would not be allowed to operate if it were in the US - many problems, especially with sanitation.

    Travel- the school arranges various trips, don't bother with the one to Tolstoy's estate, too much sitting in a bus and nearly nothing to see out there. They did have a decent trip to Piter for a couple hundred bucks.
