I’ve been having Russian lessons with Russificate Language School for two months now and can safely say that I’m very happy I chose this school. Within a week of enquiring about lessons I was given a free trial lesson and my first paid lesson. It was so easy! Any queries I’ve had have been answered extremely quickly and the payment system is very secure and easy to use.

My teacher Olga Bondareva has chosen relevant and engaging materials and constructive teaching methods, which enable me to fulfil my aims of improving my grammatical accuracy and oral fluency. She gives me the opportunity to get much-needed speaking practice and effectively corrects my errors. From her lessons I’m gaining more and more confidence in my Russian language skills.

I highly recommend the Russificate Language School and Olga as a teacher.

Mikhail Yurievich is one of the best tutors of Russian as a second language that I have met during the time of my studying it.
He is well and honestly prepared for the lessons, bringing own (author’s) materials to every lesson for reading and discussing, grammar exercises, lexical exercises (including the typical cliché phrases from the speaking language and slang) and dialogues for the development of speech. Among the materials there are also practice and visualisation of the correct pronunciation, which is absent in the typical textbooks of Russian as a second language, although it is especially important for the foreigners.
With this combination of the different didactic methods, Mikhail Yurievich, systematically develops all 4 language competencies in all types of students. He is an experienced tutor, who actively and constructively uses own knowledge of the language problems, connected with the interference of the students’ mother tongue.
Mikhail Yurievich’s lessons are always led in a good mood and in a pleasant atmosphere. With his natural charm and a good sense of humour, he finds common ground and understanding with every student, and also ways to motivate students in discussions of any topic. During the discussion, the student forgets that he is speaking a foreign language; in this way eventually eliminating the language barriers and fear of mistakes. On the other hand, thanks to his wide range of interests he is prepared to lead the lesson on any topic that interests the student; and to answer any questions connected with the history and the culture of Russia.
Work with Mikhail Yurievich is always interesting and helpful!

I guarantee that your Russian will improve dramatically! My Russian was acceptable but I reached a point that I was not seeing any progress. After trying with different teachers without results I met Yulia and my Russian improved dramatically. Probably, the best Russian teacher I ever had.
