Central School is the centre of administration for the schools in St Petersburg and the regions. It is here where monthly teacher training workshops take place in the Director of Studies (DOS)’s office.
Central School hosts a wide selection of books and resources for use in the EFL classroom and the DOS is always at hand for additional help and support.
Teachers based in Pushkin or Petergof are always welcome at Central School to use any of the resources or seek help from the DOS.
There is a small teachers’ room here with a computer/printer, photocopier and cupboards with individual shelves for each teacher, including those working in the suburbs. There is also a guillotine, laminator and microwave available to use as well as a projector. The centre is also air-conditioned. The office and classrooms are spacious and comfortable.
Each classroom is equipped with a cassette or CD player, whiteboard and, in the main building a television and video. All the schools have a water cooler with hot and cold water as well as tea and coffee facilities.
The Russian administrative staff are on the whole quite friendly and willing to help with any problems if they can. Teachers can have individual Russian lessons at a good discounted rate.
The school is open all year round with short holidays at Christmas and in May.
Language Link has a staff of 21 in the school at St. Petersburg and a further 4 in Pushkin and 5 in Petergof. These include both local and UK, US, Canadian and Australian nationals.
We offer courses to the general public. These run for 20 weeks, 6 academic hours a week. We also provide customised training for corporate clients, teacher training for Russian English teachers, courses in business English and courses in examination preparation (such as Cambridge First Certificate, Advanced and Proficiency levels, IELTS and TOEFL).
We are situated in the centre of the city. Five minutes walk from Kazanskiy cathedral on Nevskiy Prospekt. The nearest metro station is Nevskiy Prospekt.
