Maria Stoyanova is an excellent teacher. My first steps in the Russian language were very difficult because I had to start from scratch in a group of students who had been studying Russian for at least three years in their native countries. Maria proved to be a true professional from the beginning, as she showed excellent teaching skills, total commitment to her students, and a wonderful personality. This is an excellent combination to motivate even the most backward students. I would recommend Maria as many times as necessary. Maria Stoyanova, thanks for everything!

Yulia is a great teacher and I would highly recommend her. Her lessons combine a good balance of the key skills of reading, writing, listening and speaking, so you cover and develop all the fundamental aspects of language learning with every lesson. The lessons are almost entirely in Russian, which was challenging initially; however, I have found that this immersion in the language prompts faster development as you have to rely on your Russian all the time, rather than switching to your native language for comfort which is all too easy to do. Yulia has a lot of patience and has the ability to explain things in a very clear and methodical way. You do not feel afraid to make mistakes or ask questions. I hope to use Russian for work in a legal context in the future and I was particularly impressed by the effort which Yulia went to, to find legal resources for me. It really shows that she is willing to go out of her way to help her students and she will listen to you and meet your objectives.

I warmly recommend the Russian courses set up on Skype by Yulia. After starting group classes in the evening at a training centre in Paris, I was looking for a particular additional course that would allow me to further and deepen my lessons at the same time.
I also had to find a formula that does not consume my time with travel around Paris. I am a manager and I have a very busy schedule, so I needed to find an effective method by which I could optimize the time I can devote to the study of Russian.

My teacher is Alyona Belikhina who works at the Pushkin Institute in Moscow. She knows English very well .

This method of learning by Skype is very useful and relevant:

  • I can set the course schedule in the gaps that suit me and I can take lessons from home without moving anywhere;
  • With Alyona I review the content I learn in group in the training center in Paris, she has the same textbook as in the Centre;
  • I revise the points that I have not quite grasped, and the teacher sends me exercises or explanations by Skype or by email;
  • I'm working at my Russian vocabulary applied in practical situations;
  • When I do not understand a subject in Russian , I speak English with the teacher and she explains it to me ,
  • I also continue to work on Skype during periods of leave from the Language Centre
  • The payment of Skype lessons is simple and without fees.

Alyona follows my progress and can adapt her classes to my time constraints and my level. She identifies weak points I have to work on. She also provides time during the lessons to discuss the topics of everyday life or the news, which, in addition to the lesson exercises and grammar points, allows me to speak in Russian and correct my mistakes to gradually carry on a conversation in Russian.

I am very satisfied with this method of learning Russian through Skype developed by Yulia with the assistance of these highly experienced Russian tutors. Yulia adapts to the needs of her students and I am grateful to her for that.

If you want to learn the beautiful Russian language, I invite you to take the first free lesson, you can check yourself if all of the above-mentioned is true.

How it works

An online Russian Skype 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.
