Russian lessons of this type are broader and are aimed towards students with a variety of requirements. While all beginner level students will cover survival Russian - needed for short visits to countries where English isn't widely spoken, or if you wish to 'go local'; those studying Russian usually go in different directions at this point, depending on what they need. Those who have benefitted from these Russian classes have been those investing in or buying property overseas, those married to overseas nationals, people setting off on a round-the-world trip, enthusiasts in Russian culture, and those enthusiastic to pass a specific exam in Russian.
These Russian lessons are driven towards people who have a requirement to learn Russian to bolster their work output. For novices, you will find it useful to learn basic greetings and business etiquette; and once you have become more proficient then reading and writing will come to the fore. Typical students include those concerned with import/export, those seeking work in multinational companies, international negotiations, and anyone working with international colleagues or administration. Even on our most rudimentary beginners lesson, students can expect to finish the lesson with decent telephone and e-mail Russian, as well as a good enough grip on the language for a short trip to the country.
If there are 2 or more of you with the same level of Russian, the same targets within the language, and be able to study at the same time and location, then you'll be happy to know that these Russian lessons can also be made available for Two-to-One Russian Lessons or Small Group In-Company Russian Lessons. Listen & Learn do not generally recommend classes of more than 6-8 people, although Taster lessons in Russian can run with up to 12 people. Bookings must be made for all participants at the same time.

Native English speakers will find Russian tough - rated a 'Level III' language, it is said that an English speaker would need around 780 hours of Russian surroundings to gain semi-fluency
"For my first lesson, I received the same top quality Russian language lesson that Listen and Learn promise to maintain. Having been an instructor at one time, I am in the habit of testing fellow instructors regarding their knowledge and their ability to teach. Well I am happy to inform you that my first lesson exceeded my expectations in all aspects! Not only did Maria impose the degree of professionalism that was warranted, she is very knowledgeable and she has that knack for sensing the approach a particular student should have in order for that student to learn, and more importantly, for that student to want to learn. Maria achieved the element of trust that must first be established between an instructor and their student in order for a student's mind to open itself to the learning process. Now, I only hope that I can achieve my own objectives!"
MontrealStunningly beautiful Montreal is the creative centre of Quebec and Francophone North America as a whole. French is the official language of Montreal, but many languages make up the cultural face of this fantastically vibrant city. Montreal is home to a dynamic English-speaking artistic community, and other ethnicity/linguistic theatre groups, such as Yiddish Theatre, established themselves as a Montreal mainstay from the 1970s. 'Allophone' is a term given to a resident of Quebec, often an immigrant, whose mother tongue is neither French nor English. The most populous allophone communities are Italian, Arabic, Spanish, Chinese, Greek, Creole, Portuguese, Romanian, Vietnamese and Polish. The allophone cultures are an essential aspect of the character of the cityscape, and as such, Montreal represents the perfect place to pursue a study in any one of a number of world languages.
