Students' experience in Astana

Total russian immersion experience

Through special arrangements with KAZGUU University, Language Link is able to hosts its language courses on the university’s campus allowing students to mix and mingle freely with a welcoming student population. Students are also free to make full use of the university’s library and sports facilities.

Though studying Russian in the capital of Kazakhstan provides a unique opportunity to learn or improve your Russian language skills while living in the heart of Central Asian, this experience can be compounded by living with a Russian-speaking host family during your stay. In addition to affording you the opportunity to practice your language skills, host families provide their guests with a wealth of information concerning how best to enjoy their stays in Astana.
