Best online russian language courses
Does anyone know any good Russian language courses? I want to take my knowledge of Russian to the next level. Therefore, I’m searching Russian tutor for teaching via Skype.
I’ve been learning Russian for 5 months now with learnrussian4u.com and pretty happy I chose these guys. I have a teacher via skype whose native language is Russian but she used to live in the US, so her English is perfect for explanations. I loved the fact she is actually inborn Russian because this way she looks at my learning process as a Russian-speaker, so she knows how to pronounce stuff and, also, she knows how difficult it is for an American.
Did you make a choice between individual and group lessons? In individual learning you obtain the whole attention of your teacher, who will be able to adapt the learning program to your needs and interests. On the other hand, you have group learning, which will permit you to easily practice your target language, participate in discussions and conversations and discover other students’ mistakes; all this will impulse you to advance in order not to staying behind the group. It’s very important that the group’s level will the same as yours. You should never be in a lower language lever and it’s better if your classmates will be a little bit stronger than you. Then, you will have to make an effort for advancing.
One of the best resources for learning Russian is EDUCA Russian Language School, they even have PhD teachers from the Saint Petersburg University.
The best way to really learn Russian is to make a Russian friend, once you have some basic vocabulary down. If you find someone with whom you have some common interests, you’ll find yourself speaking for the purpose of communicating, and because you are genuinely interested in the other party. The Russian then comes of its own accord.
There are a lot of nice Russian folks who will happily chat with you on Skype. You can find them by participating at sites like Duolingo or HelloTalk.
