About Program

Do you wanna learn Russian? This is your chance to feel not as an ordinary tourist, but as a local with a homestay in Russia!

This program will give you the chance to live in Russia from 2 weeks and up to 3 months with a host family that will gladly house you in and show you the daily life of Russians, their customs and traditions, and help you uncover the mystery behind the characteristic Russian character. They’ll teach you Russian and help you improve your skills in less than three months.

In exchange of their full board and language assistance, you’re required to teach them your native language 15 hours a week. You don’t need to prepare classes or lessons: just discuss with them what they wish to learn and start the language exchange! We’ll provide you with teaching materials in case you need them, anyways.

If you’re curious about Russian culture, this is your best opportunity to approach to it through the eyes of a local!

Memories for a lifetime

I spent a few weeks in a language homestay in Russia in 2017. I had a really enjoyable time and made friends with some great people. The family was very friendly and there was plenty to see and do. I knew a little Russian which helped, just some greetings and please and thankyou etc. Overall, this was a much more real experience than being a tourist and you get to meet real people. You also get to see the personal lives of your host family, and get to know their world views and this makes for some great discussion of different perspectives. You will have some great stories for your friends when you return from the beautiful Russia. The only downside is that you'll realise that Russia is a really massive place and you could spend forever travelling around it and still miss some amazing scenery, places and people.

If you want something more substantial and 'real' than some pre-packaged glossy brochure, do this program.

What would you improve about this program?
The program was very enjoyable and I had a great time. I kept an open mind and was just keen to see what happened each day. I guess that occasionally I did feel like I missed some communication from time to time, but overall it was really good. Voronezh was a great city to visit and it was something different as everyone expects to go to Moscow or St Petersburg so Voronezh is a bit of a surprise.
