Summer School

​Russian Language Summer School at the Financial University in Moscow
7-28 July 2020


Each of us, thinking about how to design our lives, wants to get a degree and get a university diploma. However, practical experience shows that those who do not rest on their laurels and devote their free time to self-education are those who turn out to be lucky. One of the areas for self-education might be foreign language studies. They say it for a reason that “How many languages you know — that many times you are a person". This is true since, as they say, “A different language is a different vision of life". Certainly, a language is formed under certain conditions during a specific nation development period, and a foreign language helps understand the culture of a people that speaks the language.




IMG_8794.jpgLet's look at this issue from the point of view of Economics. If you know a foreign language, you do not need to pay a translator if you would like to buy a souvenir during trip to a foreign country, but there is not just a pragmatic reason for learning a foreign language, there are purely medical reasons for it. Foreign language learning process slows down the aging process, improves mental activity and memory, makes thinking more flexible and develops non-standard thinking.

Instead of offering miraculous pills that would improve your memory and mental activity to you, we suggest that you join groups of participants of the Financial University Summer School of the Russian Language.

We can offer you lessons conducted by an instructor, teaching material examination and analysis, meetings and conversations with the native speakers in the summertime. Moreover, you will have an opportunity to see Moscow, join us in the swing of life of one of the world's megalopolises, take a look at the historical monuments, and learn more about the Russian traditions and culture.

The Summer School will work from the 7th of July till the 28th of July 2019 in the Financial University campus in Moscow. You will have an opportunity to combine learning the Russian language with the tours of Moscow during which you could see the key sights of the Russian capital.


​The student group composition will depend on the language proficiency level. There will be 7 to 10 people in each group. Upon completing the course, the School students will obtain a relevant certificate issued by the Financial University.

The students will study, be accommodated and have their meals at the University campus located on Leningradsky Prospekt, the widest street of Moscow. It is a part of the old road leading from Moscow to the town of Tver and Novgorod. It connected Moscow and St-Petersburg in the middle of XVIII century. The main symbols of Russia, the Red Square, the Kremlin, the Bolshoi Theater, Christ the Savior Cathedral, the Tretyakov Gallery, are all easily accessible from the campus. You can use a subway or ground transport to get there.

The cost of participation is about 900 euros. The price includes:

  • The tuition fee;
  • The University Student Residence Hall;
  • Meal (breakfast and lunch on weekdays);
  • Cultural programme and tour-related;
  • Visa support.
