of Russian Language and Culture.
Online courses.

Every language is greater than the sum of its rules and words.
It’s another dimension with a unique rhythm, emotional state, customs and mindset. To learn a language is to enter that dimension.

A blend of academic programs and informal tutoring

We work with different kind of learners such as students, professors, businessmen, managers of international companies and independent artists. We always approach each person individually to maximize the effectiveness and efficiency of our courses.

A person may have a very specific goal, for instance, fluency in a year – in this case we offer an intensive systematic program. For others, learning Russian is a hobby or nice activity without clear goals, where the joy of the process and relaxed atmosphere play major roles; the lessons are more like a journey to a new country.

Academic programs

From the beginning to proficiency step by step — speaking, reading, listening and writing. Our teachers are certified professionals who use the communicative method with different education programs and materials adapted for each individual student’s needs.

Eat the elephant in one bite:

  • Tenses
  • Russian case usage
  • Perfective and imperfective verb aspects
  • Verbs of motion
  • Impersonal constructions
  • Passive voice and much more

Informal tutoring

Language learning is like a sport where your conversational skills are like the movements of your body: they need regularity and repetition. Our tutors have various backgrounds and life experience. This allows students to develop a very specific language usage.

  • Chatting about different topics – art, social, economic, technical, historical.
  • Addressing weaknesses in language usage
  • Improving stylistic and phonetic accuracy in Russian

Normally tutors are professional teachers with various backgrounds and life experiences. This allows students to develop a very specific language usage.

Interesting means efficient

From the very beginning, it’s worth speaking about yourself, your personal interests and the real events of your life. You can even do it in the first or second lesson. When language reflects reality, it creates a true means of communication.
