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.

I have been very impressed with Dana and can fully recommend her as a tutor. She takes the time to carefully tailor each class to my needs, even producing her own home tasks based on what we cover in each class. Dana takes the time to find relevant articles based on my interests and has the patience and knowledge to explain why things work the way they do. Dana is perfect if you really want to understand grammar, in particular why and how Russian works the way it does. She combines an academic, professional approach with a warm and friendly delivery making each class a pleasure to take part in.
My name is Alexandra Lyle and my mother tongue is English. I have been taking online Russian classes with Yulia Amlinskaya for over a year via Skype.
I thoroughly recommend Yulia as a teacher. She provides all relevant study materials on an ongoing basis, and she gives clear and thorough explanations of all my questions, whether they be grammar questions or questions about any aspect of Russian culture. I love that the lessons are conducted in Russian, and also that Yulia’s fluency in English means that I can ask for the Russian translation of certain English expressions or items of vocabulary.
As well, Yulia is consistent, reliable, patient, and fun – all qualities that go towards making her classes an enjoyable and stimulating experience. I am happy to recommend her online Russian language school, “Russificate”.
I was a student of Svetlana during 3 years, first when I was working in Moscow, and then with Skype lessons.
The contribution from Svetlana as teacher of Russian language has been very productive and efficient. I was a complete beginner, and without being very fluent, I am now able to communicate in this language.
This is a great achievement for me.
She has always demonstrated a strong motivation to perform, a strong perseverance, with patience and high level of technical competency for teaching language.
But above all, I have been very impressed by her ability to understand several foreign languages, her continuous desire to learn and to improve her knowledge and her working capacity.
No need to say that her attachment to Russian literature was very communicative.
Finally, it was a pleasant moment to converse with her in French language, my mother tongue, as she also speaks this language.
It was a great pleasure and satisfaction to work with her.
