Introductory Russian I
Have you ever thought of learning Russian one day? Maybe to take a trip to Moscow, communicate with your Russian family members, read great Russian literature or just for fun? But you thought the Russian language would be too difficult. You were wrong! Learning Russian is not harder than any other foreign language. The goal for the beginner course is to become proficient in reading, writing and to be able to hold a basic conversation.
Sessions – Fall 2020
In Fall 2020 we are organizing small group of adults and youth for introductory Russian classes that will meet twice a week. These groups will either at our classroom or on Zoom, according to student interest and availability. If you are interested in joining a small group, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be happy to help you!

Russian through Art
Check back for future workshop offerings!
Let’s have some fun painting a traditional Russian symbol, matrioshka (also known as a nesting doll) and learning about different painting styles popular in Russia. We will practice painting on paper in this workshop so that you can refine your skills for future projects. This workshop will widen your knowledge of Russian culture, history and help you develop new vocabulary. You can email email@example.com if you have questions.
The Language of Russian Food
Pelmeni are a classic Slavic tradition. This workshop is a wonderful way to enrich your vocabulary and learn pronunciation for traditional Russian meals and ingredients. As a bonus you will learn how to make pelmeni by hand and get a taste of authentic Russian food. We plan to offer this workshop again next year due to concerns over COVID-19. You can email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions or would like to be on our mailing list.
Don’t let the current climate limit your language learning progress! Given concerns around COVID-19, our teachers are happy to meet with you digitally for one-on-one instruction. Over your phone or computer, you can speak face-to-face while sharing files, video clips, short stories, written exercises and more. Meeting with a teacher is a great way to improve your language skills through interactive conversations and exercises.
Our language tutoring rate is $46 dollars per hour, and when you purchase your time in advance you can reduce that rate down to just $42 per hour. With individual tutoring, you can work with your teacher to find a time that works for both of you. We also offer semi-private tutoring for 2-4 youth and/or adults at an affordable price, so you can have fun learning with your friends. You can see more information about this by scrolling down to the bottom of the page.
