Learning Russian at Russificate was a great experience. The school is very well managed. It can be cosidered a solid reference in teaching Russian as a second language.

My russian classes with teacher Alyona Belikhina were excellent. All the classes were very well conducted. In the first class we devised together
a specific plan for my needs, and she always made sure that the goal of each lesson was reached. Besides, the classes were interesting and pleasant. Not tiring at all.
My expectations were 100% met. I definetly recommend her classes for those who are seriously interested in learning Russian.

I was struggling to learn Russian on my own when I discovered Yulia's Russian lessons on Skype. As a Russian beginner I highly recommend her lessons. She keeps a good balance between theory and practice, she uses several different materials yet she keeps the teaching focused to your personal progress. She can adapt the lessons to your particular level and needs. She not only is a very qualified and experienced teacher, she has a talent for it!

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.
