Learning Russian at Russificate was a great experience. The school is very well managed. It can be cosidered a solid reference in teaching Russian as a second language.

My russian classes with teacher Alyona Belikhina were excellent. All the classes were very well conducted. In the first class we devised together
a specific plan for my needs, and she always made sure that the goal of each lesson was reached. Besides, the classes were interesting and pleasant. Not tiring at all.
My expectations were 100% met. I definetly recommend her classes for those who are seriously interested in learning Russian.

I was struggling to learn Russian on my own when I discovered Yulia's Russian lessons on Skype. As a Russian beginner I highly recommend her lessons. She keeps a good balance between theory and practice, she uses several different materials yet she keeps the teaching focused to your personal progress. She can adapt the lessons to your particular level and needs. She not only is a very qualified and experienced teacher, she has a talent for it!

If you want to learn Russian I highly recommend you Russian lessons with Yulia. She is a great teacher and she can help you to improve all key language skills. During her lessons you watch some videos, talk with Yulia about different topics, do some grammar exercises, read some texts and also write some. So you need all four key language skills: writing, reading, listening and speaking. She really caters for your needs in Russian language and so you also can enhance your problems within the language or grammar. She also considers your personal wishes and wants to meet your objectives. So you can for example choose topics you’re interested in or choose grammar topics you need to repeat. Yulia is also a very patient teacher. When you don’t know a word she helps you and she explains everything very understandable. The lessons are nearly just in Russian and so you have to start thinking in Russian. Since I started my Russian lessons with Yulia my Russian language skills really improved and I will definitely go on learning Russian with her.
