Natalia is a terrific teacher who has helped me a lot to improve my Russian. I studied Russian many years ago and have used it only passively -- reading and translating, but speaking very little and writing almost not at all. That means that my recollection of grammar and retention of vocabulary leave a lot to be desired. Natalia is very good at figuring out what I am trying to say, even when many of the words I use are wrong! She is patient, but also concentrates very well on steering our discussions in a focused way, so that I do not lose sight of the grammatical point we are working on. It has been very helpful to me to have the discipline of a weekly one-hour class, to force myself to work hard and do the homework.

As a professional translator I always try to keep my knowledge of foreign languages up to date. As for Russian, I was immediately enthusiastic when I discovered Yulia's website, so full of useful resources. Now, after only a few Russian online classes with her through Skype, I already notice great improvements and an even better command of the language. I can highly recommend Yulia to anyone wanting to learn Russian or practice it at any level: she is a fully qualified teacher and her teaching standards and methods are excellent.

I am extremely happy with the course from Pavel. First of all it is well prepared and well structured. Also it follows my level and progression very well: all my weak points are trapped, worked-out and followed up. It is also very rich, with various contents, in the form of pictures, animations, exercises, texts… Finally there is a room for free conversation which is to me very important because it is not easy to pass the bridge from understanding the language , to the ability to have a conversation I really feel my Learning curve has become steeper since I started this course. It seems to me much more efficient than a traditional classroom course.
