I’ve been having Russian lessons with Russificate Language School for two months now and can safely say that I’m very happy I chose this school. Within a week of enquiring about lessons I was given a free trial lesson and my first paid lesson. It was so easy! Any queries I’ve had have been answered extremely quickly and the payment system is very secure and easy to use.

My teacher Olga Bondareva has chosen relevant and engaging materials and constructive teaching methods, which enable me to fulfil my aims of improving my grammatical accuracy and oral fluency. She gives me the opportunity to get much-needed speaking practice and effectively corrects my errors. From her lessons I’m gaining more and more confidence in my Russian language skills.

I highly recommend the Russificate Language School and Olga as a teacher.

I have been learning Russian language with Russificate language school for 5 months, and would highly recommend this school to anyone who is serious in learning Russian language.
Having Julia Sutuginiene as my Russian teacher was a great experience. Julia is a very experienced teacher, she loves what she is doing and always make our lessons fun and enjoyable. She approached grammar topics structurally which makes them easy to follow and understand. It's difficult to forget what I've learnt as she constantly practice vocabularies and grammar with me, and encouraged me to speak in Russian during lesson. She always gave extra information about Russian cultures and places in Russia to broaden my knowledge. It was a pleasure to work with her and would highly recommend her as a teacher.

I've been taking online lessons from Alexandra for about four years on and off. I am interested in Russian literature and thus have watched video lectures on literature, written summaries of them, and read various literary texts with her. Alexandra is an excellent teacher and a truly intellectual person. She always clarifies my questions, explains to me the differences between similar expressions, and shares with me her accurate and logical interpretations of the videos/texts. This process greatly helps me gain new perspectives on the videos/texts and understand the world of Russian literature more deeply. I would also like to express my gratitude for Yulia, the director of the school, who is prompt, understands my needs very well, and introduced me to the wonderful teacher Alexandra.
