Why do we keep our fees so low? It is our belief and our policy that our own permanent students benefit greatly from working alongside our visiting students. You are an asset to the School, whom we are happy to subsidise. The advantage to you of daily contact with Russian students is obvious.

Friends and total security

Russia has become increasingly involved with the outside world. Our students are preparing themselves for international careers — in business, diplomatic service, politics, etc. You will be their important immediate international contact and a friend to cherish. Red-Eyes-at-Departure Syndrome is one disease our foreign students are not immunised against. And they do come back! Our School attracts students from all former Soviet Republics (now, new independent states). Total security is part of our contract with the parents, and we have an over 10-year record to prove that we stand by it. (For more details, see Further Details).

Full-Immersion, Tailor-Made Russian Language Courses

RUSSIAN LANGUAGE STUDY PACKAGE IN RUSSIA, NEAR MOSCOW

Full immersion in the Russian Language goes without saying. You will be cordially invited (and heartily encouraged) to participate in all our extra-curricular activities — sports, singing, dancing and dramatic circles and, of course, partying. Your Russian Language Course will be adapted to your level and needs. Our teachers are experienced in helping students of Russian to prepare for GCSE, A-level examinations of UK Examining Boards and university entrance exams. They have developed an excellent «Russian for Business» course.

A Wide Range of Supplementary Courses

Apart from full-immersion tuition in the Russian Language, courses in 19th-20th-Century Russian Literature, Russian History, Political and Business Studies, Art, Theatre, Cinematograph, Music Folk Dancing and Cuisine are available. All courses are taught in Russian and include appropriate thematic visits and tours.

Sightseeing Trips

Choice of Accommodation

RUSSIAN LANGUAGE STUDY PACKAGE IN RUSSIA, NEAR MOSCOW

The School gets its name, Dubravushka («Oak Grove»), from the beautiful old oak park at the edge of the town of Obninsk, where our students are housed in 1950s brick cottages. One of the cottages is the School’s own Cafe.

Foreign students are offered single rooms in Dubravushka or can choose to share with Russian students to get even more conversational practice.

For sports and fitness, there is a football pitch, doubling up as a skating-rink in winter, volleyball grounds, ping-pong tables on the terraces, scenic cross-country skiing pistes in the surrounding forest and mountain-skiing slopes, which attract skiers from Moscow, just behind the Dubravushka park. The town’s Central Swimming-Pool and Tennis Courts are a walk away. The proprietors of friendly stables are always delighted to provide a horse and a riding lesson.

Alternative accommodation can be arranged with local families, in individual or shared flats or at a hotel, in Obninsk.

The Most Environmentally Friendly Town

RUSSIAN LANGUAGE STUDY PACKAGE IN RUSSIA, NEAR MOSCOW

Of all towns around Moscow, Obninsk provides the ideal location for Russia’s first full-curriculum independent boarding school. 55 miles is not far but a sufficient distance from Moscow to get away from the dirt and dust and the vain bustle of the metropolis. However, you can easily get back to it, so that there is no sense of deprivation.


The quiet scientific centre with a population of 100 000, predominantly employees of research and academic institutes, was built in the middle of boundless pine and birch forests — around, and for the needs of, the Typhoon Experimental Meteorology Research Institute, which sets ecological standards for the entire country. This is why patches of forest were left untouched and you can still feast your eyes on enormous ancient trees, here and there, around the town. This also explains the words of the Chairman of the Russian Duma Committee on Ecology: «Obninsk is the most environmentally friendly town… All they do there is devise new ways of monitoring the environment!»
