Course introduction

Russian language has come a long way over the course of its lengthy history. Once, it had a more complex, branching system of verb forms and noun declension, but in its modern form Russian has developed a much more structured grammar. In this course you will learn what Russian language was like at the beginning of its history, how it evolved, and how its phonetics and grammar have changed over the years. We will explore the history of nouns and adjectives, as well as pronouns, numerals and adverbs. In addition, we will discuss the history of Russian’s verb system.

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.

When I came to Moscow I learned about the possibility of learning Russian via Skype with Russificate and decided against it. After learning five foreign languages, I felt sure that the best way to study a new language was to receive face to face private lessons.
I took Russian classes in person with a very good teacher for almost a year. However, due to the fact that I went back to Spain and it was difficult to find professional teachers in my town I decided to try Russian lessons via Skype.
Now I recommend them without hesitation and I think I will never again study Russian or any other language in the traditional way for a number of reasons:

  • Olga (my teacher), is an excellent teacher with an extended experience teaching foreign students. I know from my friends that Yulia is a great teacher too, although I didn't have the pleasure of taking classes with her.
  • I can take Russian lessons anywhere in the world. In fact I've taken classes from four different sites, saving time, money and not missing classes when traveling.
  • Russificate boasts great customer service. If I have any questions, whether by email, by phone (when I was in Russia), on Facebook or Skype, they answer really quickly.
  • The payments are secure. I just do a transfer to a Spanish bank account, so that when I'm in Spain I do not have to pay international transfers.
  • The Russian classes via Skype have the same parts as a face to face lesson, one can speak, write and exchange files. However, they are more modern because new technologies are used.
  • It is the future (becoming more and more present) not only of the language learning, but of work, communication, relationships, etc.

    Please, don't hesitate to try it, and if you are skeptical about it, like I was, then take the first free lesson, and you will see how convincing it is. RUSSIFICATE, CONGRATULATIONS!

I would without question recommend Pavel as a teacher. I look forward to his lessons, as they are always enjoyable. Everything is learnt communicatively and you are never overloaded with burdensome grammar exercises, either in or out of class. His approach has not only provided me with the language I need for communication, but it has pushed me to use all the language that I have acquired. This has enabled me to speak much more freely and improve my confidence. As a result, I feel that I am progressing and my motivation has increased.
