Preparation for international exams (IELTS, TOEFL, DALF, DELE, TestDaF, etc.)
We have a successful experience of preparation of students for various standardized exams.
TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) is a standardized test of knowledge of English as a foreign language, which you will need to take if you want to study in a foreign college in English (popular in the USA, Canada, Europe and Asia). The exam consists of four parts: Reading, Listening, Writing and Speaking. It is necessary to prepare for each of them separately. Our qualified teachers will help you prepare for such an important test.
IELTS (International English Language Testing System) is an international system of testing knowledge of English. If you want to get education or work where English is a language of communication or if you have decided to emigrate to an English-speaking country, IELTS will help you confirm your level of language knowledge. We will help you prepare for all types of the exam (Academic, General).
DALF (Diplôme approfondi de langue française) is a certificate of profound knowledge of French given to non-native speakers of French after passing an exam of the same name. There are two levels of the test: C1 and C2. Generally, DALF C1 is required for admission to a university, probation or employment. The results of the exam are valid for life. It is impossible to improve the results and increase the number of grades. It is possible to retake the test only if the passing grade has not been achieved earlier. In our Language Centre, we will prepare you for DALF in the best way.
DELE (Diplomas de Español como Lengua Extranjera) is a certificate of Spanish as a foreign language. It is a document officially confirming the level of knowledge of Spanish. DELE is issued by the Cervantes Institute on behalf of the Ministry of Education and Culture of Spain. If you want to enter a Spanish-language university, you will have to pass a DELE exam for B2 or C1 level. For employment, you will have to pass the exam for B2 level and if you want to teach Spanish, you will need a DELE C2 certificate. But do not worry! Highly qualified teachers of our Language Centre will help you get a DELE certificate of the necessary level.
TestDaF (Test Deutsch als Fremdsprache für ausländische Studienbewerber) is a test of German as a foreign language for enrollees. As the name suggests, TestDaF is primarily intended for those who want to enter German universities. As other standardized exams, it consists of four blocks: reading, listening and checking of written and oral speech. If TestDaf is passed successfully, the level of language knowledge – from TDN3 to TDN5 – will be marked in the certificate opposite each block. These levels correspond to B 2.1-C 1.2 levels. Come to us and we will help you pass TestDaf with the highest grades!
CELI (Certificato di conoscenza della Lingua Italiana) is a certificate of general knowledge of Italian.
CILS (Certificazione di Italiano come Lingua Straniera) is a certificate confirming the level of knowledge of Italian as a foreign language. CILS is officially recognized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Italy. Each level of the exam determines the ability of a person to communicate in different situations: common, professional, etc. TOPS Language Centre will be glad to prepare you for passing CILS with necessary grades.

Our Centre offers a wide choice of training modes:
Group training is the most popular and one of the most efficient modes. We offer training in mini groups of 2-4 people. Such a mode provides a synthesis of advantages of group and individual training modes, namely:
- The training program is corrected taking into account your needs and peculiarities;
- In a small group it is easier to determine which topics should be emphasized particularly and which ones can be examined generally;
- The teacher devotes more time and attention to each student than in a standard group solving your personal language problems;
- In small groups it is much quicker to create the necessary environment for successful, amicable and comfortable team work.
|Mini group of 2-6 people (Russian teacher)|
|Number of classes||Cost||Duration of the course|
|8 classes, 2 academic hours each||RUB 8,000 at the minimum||6-8 months|
|8 classes, 60 minutes each||RUB 5,360 at the minimum|
In individual training, the content of a course is developed taking into account personal characteristics and needs of a student to meet his/her language needs to the fullest extent. Individual classes are ideal for businessmen for whom every minute counts and who are not able to visit regular classes in a group.
Advantages of individual training:
- Maximal efficiency, since all the teacher’s attention is devoted only to you;
- Possibility to correct the content of the course and the schedule of classes during training;
- Possibility to emphasize the development or improvement of any type of speech depending on your needs.
The world is changing and now everyone can develop and learn foreign languages without leaving home or office. The advantage of distance learning is that thanks to high technologies you can learn foreign languages in any place and at a time convenient to you.
The advantages of distance learning:
- Individual approach to each student;
- Convenience and time saving;
- Studies possible at any level;
- All teachers of the Centre have been specially trained for distance teaching.
