About the Russian language
Russian is the most geographically widespread language of Eurasia and the most widely spoken of the Slavic languages. There are 150,000,000 native speakers of Russian, which makes Russian the largest native language in Europe and the eighth most spoken native language in the world today. With 300,000,000 total speakers, Russian is the fifth most spoken language on the planet. Your knowledge of the Russian language will help you to communicate with people in Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, and many other countries. But, Russian is more than just a language for travel. Knowledge of Russian can help you find a good job in the Russian Federation - in Moscow and beyond. The Russian language is complex and multifaceted. Unlike English, Russian has six grammatical cases that are used to construct accurate and elegant speech. And, you can learn that language today from the comfort of your own home. Indeed, today, Russian lessons are available not only in traditional schools but also on the Internet by Skype.
Why learn Russian on Skype
Russian lessons by Skype will let you combine all the benefits of traditional learning with the advantages of online learning. So, just like in traditional courses, you will study with one of our professional Russian instructors, but you will be able to set a schedule that is convenient for you, and you save time because you don't have to leave your own home. Your instructor will be a native speaker from Russia. And, you are guaranteed a personalized learning experience. If, for example, you want to focus only on conversational Russian instead of grammar, you just need to discuss this with your instructor.
How to learn Russian on Skype
Lessons on Skype do not differ from traditional private lessons during which the student and the teacher can see and hear each other. All the materials that you will need for each lesson are sent to you electronically in advance. Because your lessons on Skype are one-on-one, you and your instructor can easily tailor your learning experience to your needs and desires. You can focus on the topics that are most important and interesting to you, and you can spend as much time as you need to on any particular topic. So, if you need to spend extra time on numbers, for example, you just need to tell your instructor. Your course of study is designed just for you, so don't be afraid to speak up!
