I have been studying Russian for almost two years, but it was only three months ago that I discovered how beautiful this language is. I turned to Yulia Amlinskaya for help due to my difficulties in passing my university Russian exams.

I was then introduced to my teacher, Roman Stoyanov, with whom I went through all the topics covered at university, seen under a different perspective and explained in a completely different way from the standard university teaching methods. He has been clarifying all my questions and filling all the gaps in my understanding with the help of exercises provided by me and a lot of material written by him personally or taken from textbooks.

I think Roman is a fantastic teacher: his patience, availability and sympathy is helping me get results I never dreamed of being able to achieve at university! I'm really excited about his lessons and I recommend to anyone who wants to learn or improve his/her Russian to contact the team of Russificate and Roman! :) You will be in good hands, guaranteed!

I have been working with Elena as a teacher of Russian as a foreign language for about 9 months now and I am fully satisfied with her professional skills and teaching style. Elena applies both a flexible style of teaching to accomodate the students individual goals as well ensures that relevant language competencies such as grammar, reading, writing, listening and pronunciation are developed holistically.

Elena creates an atmosphere in her lessons which is friendly and supportive but at the same time motivating for the student such that the goals in language learning are reached at a high pace.

I can fully recommend Elena as a teacher.

I wanted to reach out to thank Viktoria deeply for the Russian classes that we had together. Whilst at this time my schedule is not enabling me to continue with the classes, to my deep disappointment, the classes we had together were very useful and I do hope to restart again.
As a student at the very earliest level of learning Russian, Viktoria's methodology and approach was highly effective to my needs. I found her approach to be very effective and feel that she prepares a student to learn in a very holistic way, ensuring that the basis of the language learning is covered and providing strong foundations to really learn Russian in a professional manner. I also found her approach to be highly motivating and encouraging to me. Even though the classes were conducted remotely, I did not feel the 'distance' in my learning, due to her motivational approach and personal attitude towards teaching.
I hope that soon I will be able to continue with my classes, but in the meantime, I thank her for the knowledge shared with me and wish her all the best in bringing language skills to others!
Best regards,
