Russian for Beginners
Private and group lessons with professional native teachersYour first lesson is free!
Russian for beginners course is designed for students of zero level who want to learn the basics of the Russian language, learn to read and write, start speaking and composing short dialogs, master the basics of Russian grammar, the gender and number of nouns and the basics of the case and verb systems.
Communicative teaching is conducted with the use of a large amount of texbooks and grammar books with illustrative material. The course can be useful for tourists who are interested in a "survival course" before going to Russia. However, the necessary material is given to advance to the levels A1 and A2 of the European language portfolio. Auxiliary language is used during the lessons.
Our online Russian school Russificate is made up of a collective of highly experienced Russian teachers who believe in using cutting edge technology to facilitate language learning. Our teachers strive to provide high quality yet affordable Russian lessons.

Mikhail Yurievich is one of the best tutors of Russian as a second language that I have met during the time of my studying it.
He is well and honestly prepared for the lessons, bringing own (author’s) materials to every lesson for reading and discussing, grammar exercises, lexical exercises (including the typical cliché phrases from the speaking language and slang) and dialogues for the development of speech. Among the materials there are also practice and visualisation of the correct pronunciation, which is absent in the typical textbooks of Russian as a second language, although it is especially important for the foreigners.
With this combination of the different didactic methods, Mikhail Yurievich, systematically develops all 4 language competencies in all types of students. He is an experienced tutor, who actively and constructively uses own knowledge of the language problems, connected with the interference of the students’ mother tongue.
Mikhail Yurievich’s lessons are always led in a good mood and in a pleasant atmosphere. With his natural charm and a good sense of humour, he finds common ground and understanding with every student, and also ways to motivate students in discussions of any topic. During the discussion, the student forgets that he is speaking a foreign language; in this way eventually eliminating the language barriers and fear of mistakes. On the other hand, thanks to his wide range of interests he is prepared to lead the lesson on any topic that interests the student; and to answer any questions connected with the history and the culture of Russia.
Work with Mikhail Yurievich is always interesting and helpful!
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.
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!
