During 3 hours, certified teachers teach you the basics of the language (alphabet, usual formulas of courtesy, vocabulary and expressions) in order to acquire a certain level of autonomy that will help you to orientate yourself in the subway and in the city, solving practical questions (ask for the toilets, the prices, a train ticket, etc..) as well as getting in touch with the local population.

Caucasian Lunch

Russian traditional banya

In the evening we offer you the entrance and the cover in an authentic Russian banya in the center of the city. In Russia, "banyas" are public baths in which the local population likes to go for "washing the soul and the body".

A banya session traditionally takes place following three stages, that you can repeat as much as you want: first, walking in a room heated with steam at high temperature, then plunging in cold water bath, in a lake or a river, and finally relaxation with friends. It is a great moment of conviviality and we really love it at Immersion in Russian. You will come out with the feeling of a deep well-being. An experience you won't forget!

Discovering the “Russian Sound”
