Learn Russian

Have you decided to learn Russian?


I can honestly say you are a brave person!

Russian is one of the few ancient languages in the world, and this makes the learning process a little complicated. However, to learn Russian is definitely fun! You will find many recognisable words, which came to Russian from different languages. You will learn, that Russian-speaking people are friendly and hospitable, and that life in Russian speaking countries is dynamic and modern. Learning a new language can be both exciting and daunting. Without the proper materials and guidance such a task might seem like an impossible endeavor. That is why we balance all our lessons between the classical lexical and grammatical information necessary to master a language, and lots of conversational formulae and phrases. The content is adapted to the interests of each student. You can choose between private customized lessons one-to-one, or online (Skype). There are small classes for children, where in a playful manner youngsters can learn how to read and write in Russian or Ukrainian. Let us learn Russian together. Personally, I never cease learning. The Russian language is alive and never stops developing.


Russian translation

Russian translation is an art!

Don’t you believe me?

Try using robot translation. We don’t translate word by word, but rather we interpret the message and adapt it to the understanding of people from different cultures and background. If you are still using ‘robot translation, don’t be surprised that your Russian speaking friends are laughing at you or even worse, that your Russian speaking girlfriend won’t correspond with you anymore. Have you tried to use robot translation during your business meetings? You can do it, but the success of your meeting might be questionable. Russian translation is a skill that can be achieved by constant practise and learning. We are improving our skills on a regular basis. There are no limits for perfection! You can be effectual by trying our interpretation and translation service to and from Russian, Ukrainian and English.
