I am extremely happy with the course from Pavel. First of all it is well prepared and well structured. Also it follows my level and progression very well: all my weak points are trapped, worked-out and followed up. It is also very rich, with various contents, in the form of pictures, animations, exercises, texts… Finally there is a room for free conversation which is to me very important because it is not easy to pass the bridge from understanding the language , to the ability to have a conversation I really feel my Learning curve has become steeper since I started this course. It seems to me much more efficient than a traditional classroom course.

If you want to learn Russian I highly recommend you Russian lessons with Yulia. She is a great teacher and she can help you to improve all key language skills. During her lessons you watch some videos, talk with Yulia about different topics, do some grammar exercises, read some texts and also write some. So you need all four key language skills: writing, reading, listening and speaking. She really caters for your needs in Russian language and so you also can enhance your problems within the language or grammar. She also considers your personal wishes and wants to meet your objectives. So you can for example choose topics you’re interested in or choose grammar topics you need to repeat. Yulia is also a very patient teacher. When you don’t know a word she helps you and she explains everything very understandable. The lessons are nearly just in Russian and so you have to start thinking in Russian. Since I started my Russian lessons with Yulia my Russian language skills really improved and I will definitely go on learning Russian with her.

Mikhail Yurievich was my tutor of the Russian language in 2014 during the first semester at the MSU in the name of Lomonosov. With him we studied the grammar rules and the spoken language at the same time; he understood that the grammar rules- are one thing, but the way that the Russian people speak, in which mode you can interact in Russian, which cliché phrases the Russians use, how to quickly deal with basic, political and philosophical situations, when you need to express your opinion and which songs all the Russian people know and sing- are completely different things and are very important.
We did written exercises and checked them during the lessons. Mikhail Yurievich always gave us dialogues- which in turn established discussions on many different topics, and so in this way all of the students in the group got the opportunity to speak their mind out loud, ask each other questions and so on. Mikhail Yurievich has achieved his goal; no-one was embarrassed or afraid to speak and, in my opinion, this is most important. Every student felt enough confidence to speak freely and to understand that it is possible! In conclusion, I believe that Mikhail Yurievich is a great tutor!
