«I take part in the online language courses and they are amazing. You learn a lot while having fun! I attend a B1 level course: we discuss different topics and focus on vocabulary and speaking skills, perfect for gaining speaking fluency and for learning how to speak Russian. The teachers are very prepared, organised, kind, forthcoming and ready to help if you have any questions or doubts; the groups are small so that you surely have the possibility to talk and practice, but also to get new friends to speak Russian with.

WHY LEARN RUSSIAN LANGUAGE ONLINE WITH OUR SCHOOL?
Why learn Russian language online with our school?
Here is what we do to avoid the above mentioned problems:

  • Well-structured study program: to estimate your progress and see where you're moving forward to, you can always see a clear program according to which you are going to move on. Before starting any virtual classes (except beginners), you do a test to start from the right point.

  • Teacher's feedback: you always have a support of a professional who'll gladly help you to fill in the knowledge gaps, answer your questions, identify your weaknesses to turn them into strengths.

  • Speaking practice: the virtual meetings are focused on communication, discussion, sharing news and cultures. Talking with a native speaking teacher will help you to feel self-confident while expressing your opinion and to understand fluent speech. The best online Russian speaking course is tuition in a small group to improve your communicative skills.

  • Control of your progress: it's a huge difference between studying chaotically with switching from one topic to another with different videos from the Internet and progressing step by step with visible progress from one lesson to another with logic, clear structure, explanation, memorizing, practice and progress estimation. Material rehearsal is an essential part if you don't want to lose all your progress right away.

Trust your learning to experts. Just give it a try and join an exciting learning journey with our creative, tolerant and caring teachers. Our school is a department of a large language centre Karelian Regional Organization of Additional Education "Tsentr Initiative" in the North-West of Russia which has 1500 students every year. Teaching foreign languages for 18 years, we have more than 2500 graduates from all over the world. Our team knows exactly how to make your progress fast, the learning – enjoyable and the love to the language - life-long.

Take the first trial call for free or try a month of group meetings. See how it works, ask your questions, express your wishes, discuss the program. You won't lose anything, but gain enthusiasm to continue. Get to know the culture, traditions and superstitions, watch films and music clips, read poetry and famous classics. Make a decision and we hope to meet you in Petrozavodsk one day for our program of full immersion with homestay, travelling and cultural activities. Stop hesitating: join us today.


How do online lessons work?
Our school invites you to distance learning Russian language courses. All you need is an internet connection and a device with a camera and microphone: a personal computer or a laptop are perfect because you can see all the material on the shared screen clearly and it's much more convenient to play virtual games and quizzes using a mouse, but a smartphone will do as well. We use Zoom platform and a virtual classroom where you can check the study materials and do the home tasks from anywhere. Studying with professional native speaking teachers is an amazing opportunity to start learning or improve your language skills fast and save money. Playing games and quizzes, watching videos, reading modern articles, creating presentations will make you enjoy the process and reach visible results in a short period of time.

"Enjoy Russian" language school has been teaching Russian as a foreign language online and offline in Petrozavodsk since 2004. You can choose from a variety of programs the one that will suit you the best. There are different opportunities to meet your goals, budget and timetable. The school coordinator will be glad to help you, just contact us via the chat form, e-mail or any messenger.


Will I find learning options to meet my requirements/ timetable/ goals?
For our team, it's an easy question. We've gained so much experience in teaching online that we are confident that we can offer an option for any kind of request.

In 2020 due to the pandemic, we searched for a way to switch to online so that it would suit every single person interested. Since 2004 we've been giving private online Russian language courses along with immersion programs. But as travelling became impossible, we understood that the individual classes are not for everybody. Especially today, with the lack of communication, when all people have realised how it's important to have a company.

So we started giving Russian speaking clubs three times a week according to certain topics: Soviet cartoons and films, classic and modern literature, and even swearing words. Participants liked the idea of discussions and sharing opinions, but the themes seemed too narrow, some participants asked for more grammar and more structured courses, plus many people found it too difficult to balance work, university or family and 3 lessons a week plus homework.

That's why we created group online Russian classes which started successfully in June 2020 and have been going very well since then. The main benefit of these courses is moving towards the next level of the language proficiency step by step in a small group of people from all over the world covering all language aspects (vocabulary, grammar, speaking, listening, reading and writing). The 90-minute lessons take place twice a week and there is always a home task which takes around 2 hours a week plus extra tasks for the most motivated learners. Although we had many groups of different levels, some participants asked to consider courses that would be only once a week so that it would be easier for busy people.

So we've polled all our followers and came to the conclusion that those who have a goal to reach the next level, or pass TRKI exam, to study all language aspects deeply and slowly feel very comfortable in the groups, and one hour a week wouldn't work if we spoke about grammar rules, writing and reading comprehensions, etc., as real progress is achieved through hard and constant work, so the classes should be frequent and homework must be an important part of learning.

And those who study Russian as they're fond of it, of travelling and learning about Russian culture, they have another goal - to be able to speak without fear on various everyday topics, that's why they need a pure conversational course to improve their communication skills, start to understand Russian fluent speech without boring books or loads of grammar rules. That's how we created our current speaking clubs which will be a perfect decision for people who study by themselves, on offline evening classes or with private tutors and need more conversational practice, as well as for those who already have a sufficient level of grammar and vocabulary but need to keep the conversational level.


Options to study Russian language online in a group
Having been working with thousands of foreigners from more than 50 countries, we know exactly how to meet your needs in learning. We understand that every language learner has personal goals, interests, expectations, and we're doing our best to provide an individual approach taking into account all factors like time difference, daily schedule or age while arranging our programs. That's why we have designed and successfully teach different types of online Russian language courses to meet anyone's demands.

Group course is a perfect option for you if you enjoy acquiring knowledge through live discussions with real people.


Advantages of online Russian classes in a group:


  • Low cost, you share the time and money with your group mates;

  • Fixed schedule of meetings which will make you study systematically without skipping;

  • Communication is a valuable plus, you meet people and feel a part of the interest group;

  • Learning process is fun: share news, play games together, do interactive exercises;

  • It's a real opportunity to make friends from other countries without leaving your place.


One more option is our weekly speaking clubs. The themed online meetings are a great way to learn to speak Russian online. Our teachers hold various group meetings for different levels from Soviet cartoons and films to modern poets and strong language.


Advantages of the speaking clubs:


  • Very attractive price, just 5 euros per hour plus home tasks;

  • You can attend on a regular basis or from time to time which is easy to arrange and doesn't bind you;

  • Wide diversification of topics to choose from, learn through culture;

  • No boring books or huge grammar rules, progress through communication;

  • The focus is on speaking practice, that's what you need the most studying at home.


Advantages of private Russian language classes online


We all have our own daily routine and it's often difficult in this hectic world to find time for yourself. That's why it's natural that you might prefer individual training in a gym or painting workshop to make your own progress at your own pace not to be bound by someone else's timetable or skills. Individual Russian for foreigners online is a well-proved way of language learning. Having the whole hour tête-à-tête with a native speaking teacher gives you an opportunity to reach the fastest results.

Advantages of the one-to-one education:


  • The study program is designed specially for you based on your wishes;

  • The intensity is upon your request, you can take classes as often as you need;

  • You can rearrange the schedule or stop the course if you're being busy, etc.;

  • The whole lesson is yours, you don't have to wait for other participants speaking;

  • There is no such a problem as difference in levels and learning speed with other students.

Teach yourself Russian online: possible or not?
Obviously, you can try to learn by yourself. Nowadays thanks to the Internet and technologies you can find dozens of useful mobile apps to learn foreign languages as well as hundreds of videos and podcasts for self-training. It's great if you're self-motivated enough to study systematically without skipping and postponing online Russian classes. Quality programs will help you to memorize and practice new vocabulary as well as listen to native speakers' pronunciation and repeat the words and phrases. Working hard enough at home, a person indeed can reach good results. There seems to be many possibilities if you just type "learn Russian online course" and click "search".

What the apps and free videos lack is a clear well-structured study program, teacher's feedback, motivation to go on, speaking practice and control of your progress. Starting self-training, it's so easy to skip a lesson one day and never come back. Correct pronunciation and intonation are very difficult to achieve without a professional teacher. If you learn to read by yourself with a book, you can't be sure you pronounce the words correctly in your head. If you learn to read Russian online, the teacher will always correct the mistakes and pronounce the words as much as necessary for you to memorize the correct sound. And even after hundreds of hours spent on self-study, if you come to Russia and try to speak, there is a huge possibility you won't be understood. Moreover, it's much more likely you'll prefer asking a question in English. It's simple: language barrier is a real obstacle for any language learner. Try to pass a test: after 100-120 hours of self-study from zero only few people will show the next level of language proficiency, which the same hours of learning with native speakers will provide.
