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.

Evgenia is always enthusiastic, motivated, and in a good mood. She knows how to explain grammatical questions, the structure of the language, how and why. She does all this while introducing her students to elements of Russian culture, as it is impossible to understand a language without considering its culture.
My name is Maia, I’m Slovenian and I’m a teacher of Russian and Spanish.
After I finished my studies in philology in Slovenia I enrolled in a two-year course (July/August 2007-July 2008) at the Russian language school in Moscow studied with Alexandra as my teacher.
I was taking an advanced-level group class with her, as well as individual classes. Her lessons were always very useful and interesting, and we discussed every possible topic, chatting about current events and reading magazine and newspaper articles. Alexandra always brought with her to class audio and video recordings, so that we could watch a film or cartoon, and then she prepare additional material based on what we had seen.
Alexandra knew how to include every student in the class even considering that some students required additional motivation. We worked hard during our lessons, but the atmosphere in Alexandra’s classes was always relaxed. She assigns a variety of tasks for homework, which I like, because I had come to Moscow to study and her lessons were always a lot of work.
Alexandra is an excellent specialist of the Russian language and she always explained everything very clearly. Her personality is also well-suited to her work, as she is a pleasant, warm, and patient person.
As both a student and a teacher, I would strongly recommend Alexandra as a teacher for any student.
As an «иностранка» in Moscow, learning Russian is vitally necessary for me in order to survive, both in office and on the streets. As a result of studying with Elnura, even only in the weekends for a few hours, I made a significant progress just in one year.
I’d highly recommend courses of Elnura as she is
I believe that Elnura will be very helpful to anyone who wants to learn Russian no matter in which level he/she is already.
Wish you joyful lessons with Elnura!
