When I came to Moscow I learned about the possibility of learning Russian via Skype with Russificate and decided against it. After learning five foreign languages, I felt sure that the best way to study a new language was to receive face to face private lessons.
I took Russian classes in person with a very good teacher for almost a year. However, due to the fact that I went back to Spain and it was difficult to find professional teachers in my town I decided to try Russian lessons via Skype.
Now I recommend them without hesitation and I think I will never again study Russian or any other language in the traditional way for a number of reasons:

  • Olga (my teacher), is an excellent teacher with an extended experience teaching foreign students. I know from my friends that Yulia is a great teacher too, although I didn't have the pleasure of taking classes with her.
  • I can take Russian lessons anywhere in the world. In fact I've taken classes from four different sites, saving time, money and not missing classes when traveling.
  • Russificate boasts great customer service. If I have any questions, whether by email, by phone (when I was in Russia), on Facebook or Skype, they answer really quickly.
  • The payments are secure. I just do a transfer to a Spanish bank account, so that when I'm in Spain I do not have to pay international transfers.
  • The Russian classes via Skype have the same parts as a face to face lesson, one can speak, write and exchange files. However, they are more modern because new technologies are used.
  • It is the future (becoming more and more present) not only of the language learning, but of work, communication, relationships, etc.

    Please, don't hesitate to try it, and if you are skeptical about it, like I was, then take the first free lesson, and you will see how convincing it is. RUSSIFICATE, CONGRATULATIONS!

Julia Sutuginiene was preparing me for passing TORFL-3 examination. At the beginning of our studies my knowledge of Russian language was about TORFL-2 level.

As I took Russian lessons from different teachers I am confident to say that Julia Sutuginiene is one of the best teachers. I can state that I have a considerable progress in Russian and I have made a great step on the way of improving this language.

To my mind the main factor of this progress is because Julia is a very gifted teacher and she uses special methods of teaching. She is strict and she doesn’t give an opportunity for the pupils to waste their time in vain, every minute of her lesson is clearly planned and prepared beforehand, the plan of each lesson is thoroughly done and thought out.

My program was constantly corrected according to my demands and also taking into consideration the level of my understanding of the material. This fact confirms the high level of the teacher’s qualification. Julia never forgets what was done during the lessons, what is the planning for the next lesson, and she constantly checks up my homework, always uses various kinds of modern literature, a lot of audio materials, interesting video courses as well as her own working ups, and many other techniques.

I highly appreciate Julia’s professional qualities, qualification and pedagogical abilities and I will be glad to confirm my estimation and to give you additional data of her professional qualities in case you need them.

I had classes of Russian language with Yulia Amlinskaya last year. During that period Yulia has devoted the time to detect the weak points, to help me work on them and thus, to improve my Russian. She is a very patient teacher and organizes each class so the students can get the most out of it. She is also a great person, kind and amusing, which is very important for me since it makes relaxing but productive atmosphere during the classes. Therefore I highly recommend Yulia to anyone who wishes to perfect Russian.
