These amongst many more are sure to help you in your learning process. Therefore I highly recommend Aliona's professional work. Don't miss out!
Learning, particularly another language can be a pain, a torture and something that may not be easily understandable. But learning Russian language with Julia Sutuginiene can be a joy and something that will stay with you, and make you want to learn more!
Julia's teaching was wonderful! She is a master teacher and her energy and enthusiasm were evident! I was a beginner when I started lessons with Julia and during our classes I reached B1 level! This was a class I always looked forward to. Her techniques and the fact that classes were fun made all the difference from other teachers that I had had before. Julia is a very talented teacher and has so many creative ways to help her students learn. I am truly impressed and I highly recommend Julia`s class for anyone who is interested in learning Russian language in an effective and funny way. Julia is an amazing teacher with so much creativity and professionalism which helped her students to learn Russian language more quickly and easily!
Most Russian teachers out there claim that they are very excellent teachers with so many years of experience in their bags, but in fact they are only natives with no real teaching background. However, with Yulia, it is a whole new ball game. She's a native Russian teacher and she really know how to teach her mother tongue properly. Also, she's completing all her teaching with many excellent exercises, which in my own opinion, help quite a lot to assimilate knowledge. I highly recommend her! I wish I would have known her sooner.
