I've been teaching Russian for 5 years. Within the first lessons, you'll know alphabet and how to greet people in Russian.
From lesson to lesson you'll increase vocabulary and after a few lessons your knowledge will be enough to read short stories. I use online workbooks, textbooks. I have a list of websites. They let students learn grammar, listen to dialogues, watch movies. I love working with students and can't wait to start this journey through Russian grammar and literature with you.

I like to use a variety of material when teaching ESL. I first like to target student's interests and then build from there. Many of my lessons are built around videos and discussion questions, but can also be related to articles and other reading material. I find that videos with questions/vocabulary related to the material has been an effective and enjoyable way for my students to stay motivated while learning. Another one of my favorite tactics is bringing up vocabulary from previous lessons. Every moment is crucial, so let's get started!

I incorporate learning about culture as much as possible and include references to literature, movies, customs, and traditions.
