This course is intended for students from levels B2 - C1 and comprises 30 hours. The course may, however, be extended according to the wishes of students.

Course details

As part of the course, several different learning resources created especially for foreign students who are studying Russian are used. Video lessons focusing on Russian geography are also used. Students will analyze the suggested material both in spoken and written forms, and will compare aspects of Russian culture with those of their home country. During the lessons the teacher will also draw attention to the linguistic aspects (vocabulary and grammar) that a student may be grappling with.

In summer 2012, I took private Russian lessons from Vika. I was impressed with her method of teaching and the quality of the materials she provided. I studied with the book she wrote, which is comprehensive and modern. I strongly recommend her as a teacher of Russian.

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.

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.
