Russian in the Media
Private and group lessons with professional native teachersYour first lesson is free!
The Russian language used in the media differs substantially from that used in conversation or in literary works.
The aim of this course is to train students in the particularities of the language of the press, including television and radio broadcasting as well as periodicals, newspapers and magazines.
This course is intended for students at levels B2-C1 and comprises 30 hours, however the course may be extended according to the wishes of students.
During the lessons the teacher will propose articles on various topics for students to read. Such topics might include politics, economics, culture and art, technology, society, sports, science and more. Students will also watch videos (news, reports, analysis) and the teacher will help students to grasp the lexical and grammatical material characteristic of this area of study with the aid of specialized oral and written tasks. An overview of the Russian media and popular television programmes also forms part of this course. With regards to written homework, students will be tasked with writing articles on various topics in order to consolidate the vocabulary base of the course.

Katya has been my Russian tutor for about 5 months and has done an excellent job at teaching me the basics of Russian. She follows a logical and clear structure to her lessons and ensures my understanding. I have appreciated the pace she sets for my progression through the lessons so that I am challenged but also have enough time for review and comprehension. Katya has great balance of asking consistent questions each lesson to help me gain confidence in my speaking skills. I also appreciate her use of varied mediums including recorded dialogues, written texts and review of homework to help me learn Russian in many contexts.
I have been told by my colleagues at work that when I speak in Russian, I do not have an accent. This shows how much care Katya has put into my speaking skills!
I am very happy to recommend Olga Bondareva as a Russian teacher. Olga has been my Russian teacher for the past three years [or longer?] and in that time has assisted me enormously with the study of the Russian language. Olga is punctual and always well prepared. Her classes include a combination of grammar, conversation and vocabulary, are always varied and never repetitive. Olga’s bright and cheery manner also make learning Russian with her a real pleasure. For any student of the Russian language who is determined to improve his or her Russian language capabilities, Olga is the ideal teacher.
My name is Maia, I’m Slovenian and I’m a teacher of Russian and Spanish.
After I finished my studies in philology in Slovenia I enrolled in a two-year course (July/August 2007-July 2008) at the Russian language school in Moscow studied with Alexandra as my teacher.
I was taking an advanced-level group class with her, as well as individual classes. Her lessons were always very useful and interesting, and we discussed every possible topic, chatting about current events and reading magazine and newspaper articles. Alexandra always brought with her to class audio and video recordings, so that we could watch a film or cartoon, and then she prepare additional material based on what we had seen.
Alexandra knew how to include every student in the class even considering that some students required additional motivation. We worked hard during our lessons, but the atmosphere in Alexandra’s classes was always relaxed. She assigns a variety of tasks for homework, which I like, because I had come to Moscow to study and her lessons were always a lot of work.
Alexandra is an excellent specialist of the Russian language and she always explained everything very clearly. Her personality is also well-suited to her work, as she is a pleasant, warm, and patient person.
As both a student and a teacher, I would strongly recommend Alexandra as a teacher for any student.
