Other Info:
BKC – International House is one of the most respected Language Schools in Moscow, a member of the International House World Organisation and an approved Cambridge and IELTS examination centre. Whether you prefer the bustle of Moscow, or the calm of smaller nearby towns, if you are interested in learning the Russian language, or if you want to travel in Russia, and if you are interested in working abroad, then we are the school for you. There are few countries in the world with as much to offer in the way of culture as Russia. Apart from the Kremlin and the Bolshoi Theatre, the famous Russian sights everyone knows about, and world-class galleries, such as the Tretyakov, Moscow has many other less well-known tourist attractions. Even if you were to visit one every weekend, you would still not have scratched the surface of Moscow's history after a nine-month stay. You will have a chance to visit numerous historical sites in two Russian capitals Moscow and St. Petersburg as well as ancient towns of the Golden Ring of Russia.
