Liden & Denz

Russian Language Work Experience in Russia

Intern or Volunteer While You Learn Russian in Russia

Going abroad for work experience is becoming an increasingly popular option for students around the globe. International work experience provides a valuable opportunity for young people to improve their CV, gain experience in their field or field of interest, and try something new. In addition, it is also a great opportunity to develop social competency skills, become proficient in another language, and fully immerse oneself in a new and fascinating culture.

Liden & Denz is proud to be one of the first organisations to offer study and work programmes in Russia. Our goal is to provide students with a fun and educational opportunity to experience Russian daily life while they learn Russian. Students working at our host organisations can look forward to a completely authentic experience.

Alongside our Russian language training, we offer two types of work experience programmes as defined by the WYSE Work Abroad Association:

Internships

A temporary, supervised, practical experience programme in which a young person, usually a college or university student, carries out a training experience in a temporary position at a host company.

Volunteer Programmes

A temporary, supervised, practical training experience in which a person voluntarily carries out a task which has social, environmental or cultural relevance.

Please note that all internships and volunteer positions are unpaid. Students whose Russian language level is below B1 can only book a work experience program if they enrol on a course as well. Those who are above B1 level may not have to complete a course provided their language level corresponds to the requirements of their chosen position.
