How it works

An online Russian lesson is like a real Russian lesson in the classroom, because both the teacher and the student can see each other and speak to each other with the use of a headset and a web camera.

If you are interested in receiving real time Russian lessons, you will have to install Skype because it allows interactive communication.

Online Russian lessons are one-to-one classes, and if your Internet connection is fast and works properly, you will be able to hear the teacher perfectly, so it won’t be a passive language learning experience, but an active one, with an important speaking component.

No, it is not just speaking! The newest Russian learning materials are scanned and sent to you via email; in this way both the teacher and the student will be able to use them during the lessons.
In order to practise writing, the Russian keyboard has to be installed.
We also do listening, using Internet podcasts and Youtube videos.
Of course, we also do home reading, it is an important part of our course. For the beginner, pre-intermediate and intermediate levels we scan texts from the reading books. However, for advanced students we search for interesting texts on the Internet.

Our main aim is to include all the language components into our Russian language course (grammar, vocabulary, communication, reading, speaking, writing and listening) and to use the communicative approach during our lessons.

We use the newest Russian language materials in our courses. The majority of them are scanned; some of them are used online.

A virtual blackboard is one of the main tools of our classes. During the class, you and your teacher build up an electronic scrapbook of material that is relevant to you and which can be reviewed at any time.

We also use mindmaps, word clouds, infographics, interactive exercises and images, Google maps, flash cards and other resources related to new technologies.

The payment can be realized by a transfer to our Paypal account.
Other payment options are also possible and can be discussed.

Your payments are 100% secure: we never see your bank account or credit card information.
