I have been very interested in the Russian language for many years, but always thought it sounded very strange and was extremely difficult and the truth is that in my country I could not find anyone reliable to teach me Russian, so I decided to look for a native speaker.

One day I watched a presentation from the Russian school Russificate on Youtube and then found it on the Internet.

I fully recommend it. I have not had the pleasure yet of having classes with Yulia, just an email exchange, but she has always been very friendly and dispelled all of my doubts.

I'm taking classes with a wonderful, talented teacher, Alyona Belikhina. She's just great, very patient, professional in explanations and has a good knowledge of the Russian language. She always exceeds my expectations of the lessons; I could not be more satisfied with my teacher. I would like to highlight some important points in her way of teaching and personality:

  1. Original teaching methods;
  2. Professional approach towards the student;
  3. All questions easily clarified;
  4. Friendly;
  5. Provides all the necessary materials to make the class more interactive.

For anyone who is looking to learn the Russian language in an organized, professional way, with the help of a top team, Russificate School is the certainly best choice and Alyona, the best teacher!

I have had the pleasure to be the student of Tatiana Martin for a year.

Though I have had russian lessons before, and I was hesitant to continue lessons over Skype. Nonetheless, I started learning Russian with Tatiana while still at a beginner level. Though Russian is a difficult language, after months of unbroken 2 lessons a week I started to be able to read short passages, which quickly improved to reading easy short stories. After about a year I was able to hold a very basic short conversation with good grammar and vocabulary, as well as understand some passages of Russian songs and understand russian news tweets.

Tatiana is a very patient teacher, she is organised, and takes the time to prepare lessons and follows up with homework. She is also very friendly and breaks the formality of the lessons to make them fun and enjoyable.

The Russificate school is very comfortable to deal with, and Yulia, its director, is very organised and punctual regarding replying to email enquiries and sorting out payments.

I had classes of Russian language with Yulia Amlinskaya last year. During that period Yulia has devoted the time to detect the weak points, to help me work on them and thus, to improve my Russian. She is a very patient teacher and organizes each class so the students can get the most out of it. She is also a great person, kind and amusing, which is very important for me since it makes relaxing but productive atmosphere during the classes. Therefore I highly recommend Yulia to anyone who wishes to perfect Russian.
