This course has massively improved my overall language skills in Russian - for more then I could here expected. I cannot praise it enough. Lyubov was exellent - great company, exellent conversationalist, good food! Very supporting my study needs. All teachers were exellent! I was moved up a group for speaking practice and another group for grammar. All teachers were able to move easy across subjects and explanatios clearly. I particulary enjoyed Sasha's lessons for new vocabulary.  I wish I could have stayed longer. Longer days! I was pleasanly surprised that there was given a lot of homework. Read more

Luda was very helpful painting out my mistakes to help me improve. It has been very useful to be surrounded by Russians. Thanks for helping with my speaking. Thanks for Sasha's extra help and pacience in trying to explain difficult Russian grammar. It was amazing practice to do translation through speaking and to do colloquialisms + sayings. The most helpful part of learning was being able to have my usual mistakes corrected and lots of practice with cases. And specifically what casses focus certain verbs and prepositions. Also untergraing grammar with speaking topics in all casses was helpful. Maybe add a Russian essay class to help argue ideas on paper. But other than that  it was pretty perfect so I do not have many ideas for changes. Read more

I feel I know the language a lot better and easier to learn and understand. It is a lot easier for me to listen and understand Russian. The small class sizes and constant engagement from the teachers made me speak a lot more Russian and as a result I feel a lot more confident in it. There was a lot reading, writing and speaking /listening with the teacher however I would have enjoyed the use of video or audio in comprehension tasks too. The constant engagement and Russian speech with the teachers was immensely useful in making me think faster about my use of the language and really helped my confidence in speaking in Russian. I feel it would have been helpful to receive recommendations for other media forms in Russian such as films,shows,podcasts,songs etc. to encourage futher exposure to the language and improvement to listening skills,according to our level of Russian.

I fell more confident with my Russian. I liked that the teachers spoke mostly in Russian; this has helped me to understand almost everything the teacher has said in Russian. The homework exercises were useful in improving my grammar. I enjoyed the tasks and liked that we were encouraged to speak more. My host Tatiana Andreevna is wonderful. Please can we have more social activities and integration with other Russian students? Read more

For 3 years already Gulnara Pervushina is my teacher for Russian language in Moscow. We meet on a regular basis for private lessons.

Since the beginning Gulnara is paying special attention to my needs. I emphasized that for me speaking and understanding is much more important than writing and that I would like to train especially my grammar skills. Read more

I really liked all the teachers I had. They motivated me to want to learn and perfect my Russian. They were supportive, helpful and very knowledgeable. It was great having both group and individual because in group I got to gain a solid base and refined it with the individual lessons.

I didn't know any Russian when I got to Moscow and 10 months later I am confident in my ability to communicate with Russians. The communication-intensive courses were incredibly helpful.to work. Read more

In the past 18 months, I have had the opportunity to learn Russian with Ms Olesia Kharina and despite the inherent difficulty of the language for a foreigner, it has been a very effective, very exciting and quite enjoyable experience. Read more

Olesya has the best personal and professional skills to be an outstanding teacher of Russian for foreigners:

Her know-how on teaching Russian for beginners: appropriated methodology, good timing, balanced homework, results oriented.
Patient and tireless. She is able to repeat as many times as needed to achieve the results.
Professional, punctual and well-organized
I consider Olesya as the best profile in her profession. I strongly recommend her for any newcomer to the language of Dostoevsky. Read more
