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.

I strongly recommend Yulia Amlinskaya to anyone trying to learn Russian language, no matter the level you're at now. She is very experienced in teaching Russian for foreigners. More, she is the kind of teacher you always wanted to have, she makes her lessons very interesting, she can answer any question ( about Russian language :) ) in such a way so the student really understands it. I know I do. At least I feel a big improvement in the last 6 months, since I began the lessons with her. I was not a completely beginner when meeting Yulia, but still the progress I have made since is visible. If you will take a look at her Russian language blog http://learnrussianweb.net/ or at her Facebook page, you will have an idea of how passionate she is about her work, and how much effort she puts in it. Once again, I recommend Yulia with all my heart.

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.

I was a student of Svetlana during 3 years, first when I was working in Moscow, and then with Skype lessons.
The contribution from Svetlana as teacher of Russian language has been very productive and efficient. I was a complete beginner, and without being very fluent, I am now able to communicate in this language.
This is a great achievement for me.

She has always demonstrated a strong motivation to perform, a strong perseverance, with patience and high level of technical competency for teaching language.
But above all, I have been very impressed by her ability to understand several foreign languages, her continuous desire to learn and to improve her knowledge and her working capacity.

No need to say that her attachment to Russian literature was very communicative.
Finally, it was a pleasant moment to converse with her in French language, my mother tongue, as she also speaks this language.
It was a great pleasure and satisfaction to work with her.
