Course content

This course consists of three blocks.

Included in the first block is a study of history, art, and religion in the ancient world and antiquity. We will be talking about the emergence and the particular characteristics of the first civilizations. Mesopotamia, Egypt, Phoenicia, the Creto-Mycenaean civilization, ancient Greece and ancient Israel, Persia, and ancient Rome. We will be talking about what our ancient ancestors looked like, what they believed, what they created and what remains of them and their legacy.

The second block spans approximately a thousand years from the fall of the Roman Empire to the discovery of the Americas. Europe and Asia, Knights and Samurai, Scandinavian sagas and eastern tales, pre-Columbian America and the birth of Islam, the legends of the Knights of the Round Table, Beowulf and The Poem of the Sid, Romantic and Gothic architecture, the Mongol conquests, Kievan Rus’ and its neighbours...This is far from the complete list into which we will delve. We will examine, analyze, and describe art and everyday life.

The third block consists of the study of the modern era, from c.1500 to c.1800. We will start with the Renaissance and its remarkable paintings and architecture, and we will talk about the Age of Discovery. Great artists and navigators, pirates and scholars, conquistadors and colonizers, the Inquisition and the Reformation, revolution in Europe and the Time of Troubles in Russia. We will be endeavouring to examine all these events cumulatively, grasp how what was occurring in the New World affected the Old World, and understand what was happening at the same time in the east from the perspective of history and art. Your teacher will use a large number of visually illustrative material on architecture, sculpture, and painting as well as objects of material culture from various cultures and eras.

As a professional translator I always try to keep my knowledge of foreign languages up to date. As for Russian, I was immediately enthusiastic when I discovered Yulia's website, so full of useful resources. Now, after only a few Russian online classes with her through Skype, I already notice great improvements and an even better command of the language. I can highly recommend Yulia to anyone wanting to learn Russian or practice it at any level: she is a fully qualified teacher and her teaching standards and methods are excellent.

I would without question recommend Pavel as a teacher. I look forward to his lessons, as they are always enjoyable. Everything is learnt communicatively and you are never overloaded with burdensome grammar exercises, either in or out of class. His approach has not only provided me with the language I need for communication, but it has pushed me to use all the language that I have acquired. This has enabled me to speak much more freely and improve my confidence. As a result, I feel that I am progressing and my motivation has increased.

I met Alexandra three years ago. At that time I was a post-graduate student at the Catholic University of Milan and I was conducting research for my doctoral dissertation in Moscow. I approached a Russian language school because I wanted to improve my spoken Russian, and I registered for individual classes with Alexandra. She is an extremely competent teacher – friendly, with an excellent command of her subject. Perhaps most of all I appreciated the fact that she was interested in linguistics, and we could discuss some of the topics that I was examining as part of my research. I still have the book by M. Kronhouse that she gave me!
