Face-to-Face 1-to-1 (Individual) General Russian

These Russian lessons fit a broader spectrum, and can be useful for those who need different things from the language. Most beginner students will have a handle of survival Russian by the end of their lesson, which will provide them with enough Russian to communicate at least at a basic level during short trips to the country, but those who require more would benefit greatly from these sessions. Typical students have been those eager to travel all over the world, those buying overseas property, those with foreign spouses, aficionados of Russian culture and those who just wish to pass a particular Russian exam.

Face-to-Face 1-to-1 (Individual) Business Russian

These lessons in Russian are meant for those that feel that learning Russian would make a change in their work. For starters, it is expedient to learn how to say hello/goodbye, as well as basic business protocol; once the basics have been mastered, reading and writing come to the fore. Students who have greatly benefitted have been involved in import/export, international negotiations and acquisitions, jobseekers in multinational companies where another language is required, and those working in the international academia and government circuits. Even on our most fundamental beginner's lesson, students can anticipate ending the lesson with basic telephone Russian and e-mail Russian skills for communicating, as well as survival Russian if a short visit to the country is needed.
