I am a native Russian speaker. During the lesson I use books of russian authors that are really interesting and helpful. My lesson combines: grammar, reading and listening. In such way we are able to learn all aspects that will help the student to speak fluently and understand native speakers easily. I also provide exercises and give hometasks to practice the material we learned during the lesson. A little bit later, we will start to read and learn articles about culture and traditions as well. It is really interesting and will give a student a lot of useful knowledges. My classes are really interesting and they will help a student to reach his/her goals.

About Viktoriia

I am from Ukraine, but last couple of years I live in USA. My teaching experience is 3 years, but since Russian is my native language, I like teaching others. Most of my students are people who want to learn Russian language in order to travel and meet new friends. Teaching is my hobby. I like to h

My mother language is Spanish, I've read many of the great literature written and I tell you: just to read that is worth it to learn or at least to try. Spanish is one of the richest language in the world.... it's a little bit complicated but you can learn it... why not!!?

He has come up with a very specific and actionable method for making the student really understand the sounds (s)he should be aiming for. I am quite optimistic about this approach and feel it may be a good solution for me.

Japanese Honorifics (Name Suffixes & Titles): San, Sama, Chan, and More!

When learning to speak Japanese, you'll come across suffixes used to address people called "honorifics." While these may seem confusing at first, they aren't that difficult to learn. Here, we break down Japanese honorifics for beginners... Japanese honorifics aren’t as scary as they seem. Think of them like the English title prefixes (Miss, Sir, Dr., etc.).
