Russian and Ukrainian courses in Kyiv

Russian and Ukrainian courses for speakers of other languages.

Coming to study in Kyiv

Our Russian and Ukrainian language department was created specially for those wishing to study these languages in the capital of Ukraine. We have a team of creative professional teachers with long-term experience.

Our methodology

We use the modern communicative approach, which is used at all International House schools worldwide. The emphasis is mostly on training and development of the students’ communicative skills. In this way, they can use their knowledge outside the classroom in real life situations.

Communicative methodology means that teaching is conducted only in the language which is being studied.

After many years of cooperation, we developed a methodology of teaching Ukrainian and Russian languages directly, i.e. without intermediary languages. The advantage of the methodology is quick language acquisition due to absence of the need for translation.

Our teachers speak English, French and German, so they know what it means to learn a foreign languagen.

In order to learn more about our methodology you can order a trial lesson.
Our teachers can present even the most difficult material in an interesting and comprehensive form.

Study resources

We teach in specially equipped classrooms. We use contemporary course books and audio and visual materials are compulsory at the lessons.


A placement test is required before the course start. It may be in the form of a paper test or an interview. At the end of the course, our students receive an International House certificate according to the results of their final test.

120 hours of class instruction must be completed to receive a certificate.

The lessons of Ukrainian or Russian are offered to students at any level, starting with “survival language” and progressing to professional fluency.
