Russian language School in Moscow

30 years of excellence in education

Ruslanguage is the Russian language school in Russia which was founded in 1991 with the co-operation of the Moscow State University of Lomonosov (MSU). Its main goal is to develop and implement Russian study programs, as well as to promote the Russian language and culture around the world. Throughout 30 years the Ruslanguage School has provided Russian language training in groups and individually to thousands of demanding clients and has gathered outstanding experience to meet the needs of every particular student who would like to study Russian abroad.

The Russian language school in Moscow also participates in Russian study programs held under interstate and inter-university agreements (ACTR, University of Tübingen, Tokai, Soka, James Madison, Columbia University, etc.)

Besides the organization of Russian study programs for foreign students, the Ruslanguage School has prepared a number of professors and teachers of the Russian language for their participation in international conferences and seminars. In 1998, according to an agreement with the Italian Institute of Russian Language and Culture in Rome, professors and teachers of the Russian language were chosen to animate conferences there. One of them was then awarded the International Prize of Dante Alighieri, one of the most prestigious European awards in Literature.

Our Story

  • 2020

    At the beginning of 2020, due to the global pandemic COVID-19, Russia closed its borders and the visa support was suspended. Therefore, most students were unable to come to Moscow to study at the school. Ruslanguage has successfully launched an online class format. Individual lessons at the school were conducted in compliance with safety measures – all students and teachers used personal face shields, masks, and sanitizers.

    The Ruslanguage school kicked off the year 2019 in a brand new location on Petrovka street, within a 5-minute walk from the Bolshoi theatre and 10-minute walk from the Kremlin and Red Square. New top-level teachers from the Lomonosov Moscow State University joined our team. We continued to upgrade the classrooms with modern technical equipment. This year the school broke its record in the number of Russian language learners in summer. The Ruslanguage school maintained its status as a unique school that specializes exclusively on teaching Russian as a foreign language.
