Learn the real life Russian language with Tamara!
About the course
Why Russian with Tamara? Once I gave lessons to a Dutch woman two had studied Russian for three years at a popular language school in Amsterdam. I told her, “Why don't we speak Russian then?” And she answered, “Oh, we never tried that at school.”
You can spend lots of time doing boring grammar exercises, learning to read and translate texts. And that's what you get in most language schools. But if you are going to Russia you need a totally different approach. Most Russians don't speak English, so you really need to speak and understand Russian and know a few things about the do's and don'ts in Russia.
I offer a unique Russian course that will give you a working knowledge of the Russian language and prepare you to deal with real life situations. We study in small groups with a nice and friendly atmosphere, where everybody supports and inspires each other. You will see that learning Russian can be easy and fun.
Whether you need to master the Russian language or just need basic conversational skills for a trip to Russia, this course will be the best option.
Thanks to a special structure of the course, clear explanations and maximum conversational practice, you move step by step to a guaranteed result and you don't forget what you have learned.
Modern learning techniques
We use modern learning techniques, that save you time and effort ((role games, memorizing techniques ecc).
We work in small groups (maximum 12 people), so you get maximum of personal attention.
Get supported, inspired and have a lot of fun working together with your classmates and the teacher!
