Course introduction

This course is aimed at Russian language students at the B2-C1 level who are interested in Russian literature and the history of Russian literature of the 19th and 20th centuries, as well as in contemporary Russian literature. If adapted texts are used, however, then a teacher could work with a student at the B1 level as well.

In the lessons students are introduced to the most significant works of Russian writers, both poetry and prose, in chronological order.

The average course comprises 30 hours, however it may be extended according to a student’s wishes.

Course details

The teacher will acquaint students with the biographies of authors as well as the historical contexts surrounding the creation of each work. During the lessons the teacher helps students analyse each work while drawing students’ attention to the lexical and grammatical particularities of the text. The course is accompanied by videos connected to the topic of the lessons.

Yulia is a very good russian teacher! She is definitely my favourite Russian teacher. I've learnt so many things from her, not only grammar rules and new vocabulary and expressions in Russian but also she taught me how to appreciate the beauty of Russian language and culture!
If you really want to learn russian, she is the best russian tutor choice: you will all love the way she teaches, you will all love her as a tutor and as a person too!

I would without question recommend Pavel as a teacher. I look forward to his lessons, as they are always enjoyable. Everything is learnt communicatively and you are never overloaded with burdensome grammar exercises, either in or out of class. His approach has not only provided me with the language I need for communication, but it has pushed me to use all the language that I have acquired. This has enabled me to speak much more freely and improve my confidence. As a result, I feel that I am progressing and my motivation has increased.

Tatiana Ryndak has been my personal Russian tutor since July 2011.
I know her as a teacher with an extremely good command of the Russian language. She is also a dedicated teacher and a very good educator. She individually adapts her lessons according to the specific needs of the different students.
To cater to my unique requirements as a journalist, she has used a book specially designed for people in my field. In addition, she is always careful to monitor students' weaknesses, focusing on them until they are fully resolved.
I strongly recommend her.
