Liden & Denz opens a fourth language school
The new school, Liden & Denz Irkutsk, will open this year and offer Russian lessons.
It will include six classrooms and accommodate a total of 60 students at full capacity.
“The opening in Irkutsk adds Siberia, a very attractive tourist region, to our portfolio of destinations”
Individual lessons will be offered from April, while group lessons will take place in the summer period between early June and mid-September.
The center will be managed by a Swiss national, FÃ©lix Baumann, who has 15 years of experience teaching foreign languages.
Accommodation options for students include hotels, shared studios and apartments as well as host families in the city.
Walter Denz, owner and co-founder of Liden & Denz, said the company has been working on opening the center for âa long timeâ.
âThe opening in Irkutsk adds Siberia, a very attractive tourist region, to our portfolio of destinations,â he said.
âWith FÃ©lix Baumann, who will run the Irkutsk center, we share a passion for quality language training and for the Baikal region as a trendy destination.
Germany, Italy and the UK are the main countries of origin for students coming to Russia to learn the language, according to Julia. Voevodina, CEO of Liden & Denz, followed by France and Switzerland. Outside of Europe, students come from the United States, Japan and Korea, she added.
Liden & Denz currently operates centers in the Russian cities of St. Petersburg and Moscow and opened another in Riga, Latvia, in 2013. The new school is the company’s first in Asia.
