I invite you to learn Russian for Life, Work & Travel with me online. I'm happy to offer you a wide variety of Russian Courses which focus on my students' interests and needs.

At my lessons I use the communicative approach, which is centered in helping the student to develop all important Russian language skills. In each class you will practice Russian in contextualized, practical and everyday situations through activities with predefined goals. With my customized and step-by-step approach boring studying will turn to easy and enjoyable process.
At our lessons we learn culture tips, traditions and etiquette for different life situations, societal rules of conduct, body language, differences in values and norms, humor, dress codes, beliefs, customs and traditions. You will know everything to feel comfortable in a Russian-speaking environment and communicate with natives effectively.
I believe that people learn better, if they have fun and enjoy the experience of using language in their daily life. Our lessons are interactive and sociable. We learn how to use Russian in real-life situations, watch videos, listen to songs and conversations, read and discuss current news. Step by step I move you closer to achieving your individual language goals.
You will be provided with authentic learning materials, which I prepare specially for you before each class. They include visual vocabulary for beginners and vocabulary lists for advanced students, real-world dialogues and phrase banks, grammar tables and infographics, and a great variety of exercises to practice your Russian speaking and writing skills. Reading activities are based on texts from modern Russian magazines, newspapers, and blogs. In addition, you will get audios (podcasts, recorded dialogues and stories, songs) and videos (movies, shows, cartoons, TV commercials, news clips, etc.) to master your listening skills.
I'll be happy to teach you Russian. See you soon at our first lesson!
