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.

Julia Sutuginiene was preparing me for passing TORFL-3 examination. At the beginning of our studies my knowledge of Russian language was about TORFL-2 level.
As I took Russian lessons from different teachers I am confident to say that Julia Sutuginiene is one of the best teachers. I can state that I have a considerable progress in Russian and I have made a great step on the way of improving this language.
To my mind the main factor of this progress is because Julia is a very gifted teacher and she uses special methods of teaching. She is strict and she doesn’t give an opportunity for the pupils to waste their time in vain, every minute of her lesson is clearly planned and prepared beforehand, the plan of each lesson is thoroughly done and thought out.
My program was constantly corrected according to my demands and also taking into consideration the level of my understanding of the material. This fact confirms the high level of the teacher’s qualification. Julia never forgets what was done during the lessons, what is the planning for the next lesson, and she constantly checks up my homework, always uses various kinds of modern literature, a lot of audio materials, interesting video courses as well as her own working ups, and many other techniques.
I highly appreciate Julia’s professional qualities, qualification and pedagogical abilities and I will be glad to confirm my estimation and to give you additional data of her professional qualities in case you need them.
Mikhail Yurievich was my tutor of the Russian language in 2014 during the first semester at the MSU in the name of Lomonosov. With him we studied the grammar rules and the spoken language at the same time; he understood that the grammar rules- are one thing, but the way that the Russian people speak, in which mode you can interact in Russian, which cliché phrases the Russians use, how to quickly deal with basic, political and philosophical situations, when you need to express your opinion and which songs all the Russian people know and sing- are completely different things and are very important.
We did written exercises and checked them during the lessons. Mikhail Yurievich always gave us dialogues- which in turn established discussions on many different topics, and so in this way all of the students in the group got the opportunity to speak their mind out loud, ask each other questions and so on. Mikhail Yurievich has achieved his goal; no-one was embarrassed or afraid to speak and, in my opinion, this is most important. Every student felt enough confidence to speak freely and to understand that it is possible! In conclusion, I believe that Mikhail Yurievich is a great tutor!
