Course introduction

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.

Course details

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 the teaching of Tatiana Martin during our Skype lessons over the past 6 months. The lessons are easy to arrange, with a lot of flexibility with times and dates, and this has meant lessons can easily fit my schedule. More importantly, the lessons have been interesting and useful, with a range of engaging materials and topics and lots of suggestions for follow up individual study. This has really maximised my study time and enabled me to improve my overall fluency in a short period. Tatiana is a really competent teacher with a great understanding of pedagogic issues, which really instils a lot of confidence in the student, but on top of that she is also a really open and friendly person. Highly recommended.

All in all, the lessons were easy to organise and the school very professional. Paying for the lessons in blocs was no trouble with Yulia and the school's administration giving prompt replies to all my emails. It was really straightforward.

Most Russian teachers out there claim that they are very excellent teachers with so many years of experience in their bags, but in fact they are only natives with no real teaching background. However, with Yulia, it is a whole new ball game. She's a native Russian teacher and she really know how to teach her mother tongue properly. Also, she's completing all her teaching with many excellent exercises, which in my own opinion, help quite a lot to assimilate knowledge. I highly recommend her! I wish I would have known her sooner.

I've been taking online lessons from Alexandra for about four years on and off. I am interested in Russian literature and thus have watched video lectures on literature, written summaries of them, and read various literary texts with her. Alexandra is an excellent teacher and a truly intellectual person. She always clarifies my questions, explains to me the differences between similar expressions, and shares with me her accurate and logical interpretations of the videos/texts. This process greatly helps me gain new perspectives on the videos/texts and understand the world of Russian literature more deeply. I would also like to express my gratitude for Yulia, the director of the school, who is prompt, understands my needs very well, and introduced me to the wonderful teacher Alexandra.
