Christian,

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.

I have been very impressed with the teaching of Tatiana Martin during our Skype lessons over the past 6 months. The lessons are easy to arrange, with a lot of flexibility with times and dates, and this has meant lessons can easily fit my schedule. More importantly, the lessons have been interesting and useful, with a range of engaging materials and topics and lots of suggestions for follow up individual study. This has really maximised my study time and enabled me to improve my overall fluency in a short period. Tatiana is a really competent teacher with a great understanding of pedagogic issues, which really instils a lot of confidence in the student, but on top of that she is also a really open and friendly person. Highly recommended.

All in all, the lessons were easy to organise and the school very professional. Paying for the lessons in blocs was no trouble with Yulia and the school's administration giving prompt replies to all my emails. It was really straightforward.
