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.

Katya has been my Russian tutor for about 5 months and has done an excellent job at teaching me the basics of Russian. She follows a logical and clear structure to her lessons and ensures my understanding. I have appreciated the pace she sets for my progression through the lessons so that I am challenged but also have enough time for review and comprehension. Katya has great balance of asking consistent questions each lesson to help me gain confidence in my speaking skills. I also appreciate her use of varied mediums including recorded dialogues, written texts and review of homework to help me learn Russian in many contexts.

I have been told by my colleagues at work that when I speak in Russian, I do not have an accent. This shows how much care Katya has put into my speaking skills!

I have been very interested in the Russian language for many years, but always thought it sounded very strange and was extremely difficult and the truth is that in my country I could not find anyone reliable to teach me Russian, so I decided to look for a native speaker.

One day I watched a presentation from the Russian school Russificate on Youtube and then found it on the Internet.

I fully recommend it. I have not had the pleasure yet of having classes with Yulia, just an email exchange, but she has always been very friendly and dispelled all of my doubts.

I'm taking classes with a wonderful, talented teacher, Alyona Belikhina. She's just great, very patient, professional in explanations and has a good knowledge of the Russian language. She always exceeds my expectations of the lessons; I could not be more satisfied with my teacher. I would like to highlight some important points in her way of teaching and personality:

  1. Original teaching methods;
  2. Professional approach towards the student;
  3. All questions easily clarified;
  4. Friendly;
  5. Provides all the necessary materials to make the class more interactive.

For anyone who is looking to learn the Russian language in an organized, professional way, with the help of a top team, Russificate School is the certainly best choice and Alyona, the best teacher!
