Natalia is a terrific teacher who has helped me a lot to improve my Russian. I studied Russian many years ago and have used it only passively -- reading and translating, but speaking very little and writing almost not at all. That means that my recollection of grammar and retention of vocabulary leave a lot to be desired. Natalia is very good at figuring out what I am trying to say, even when many of the words I use are wrong! She is patient, but also concentrates very well on steering our discussions in a focused way, so that I do not lose sight of the grammatical point we are working on. It has been very helpful to me to have the discipline of a weekly one-hour class, to force myself to work hard and do the homework.

The course of my teacher, Julia Sutuginiene, is intense, but very enriching and enjoyable. The fact of using interesting texts for reading, a variety of tasks for writing, engrossing listening and discussing a lot of actual topics during speaking in Russian is very motivating for the students. Julia is very clear in her explanations of grammar and any difficult moments of Russian language. And what I like the most - she use a lot of video during our study, so making homework is a big pleasure! I think - this approach of using Russian video is very interesting and dynamic in progress of speaking and understanding Russian people. I want to thank my teacher for her professional, friendly and patient demeanor throughout the course. It was a great experience, which will stay in my mind forever!

I have had the pleasure to be the student of Tatiana Martin for a year.

Though I have had russian lessons before, and I was hesitant to continue lessons over Skype. Nonetheless, I started learning Russian with Tatiana while still at a beginner level. Though Russian is a difficult language, after months of unbroken 2 lessons a week I started to be able to read short passages, which quickly improved to reading easy short stories. After about a year I was able to hold a very basic short conversation with good grammar and vocabulary, as well as understand some passages of Russian songs and understand russian news tweets.

Tatiana is a very patient teacher, she is organised, and takes the time to prepare lessons and follows up with homework. She is also very friendly and breaks the formality of the lessons to make them fun and enjoyable.

The Russificate school is very comfortable to deal with, and Yulia, its director, is very organised and punctual regarding replying to email enquiries and sorting out payments.
