Our teachers

Our teachers

All our Russian language teachers are experienced professionals. They know exactly what foreign students of any age and language level need when they come to Petrozavodsk to learn Russian. But teaching Russian as a foreign language is a difficult job that requires many special skills from a teacher. Our Russian language teachers always do their best to grow professionally and to be aware of new teaching methods and creative technologies. All our Russian language teachers are native speakers. But all of them speak foreign languages (English, French, German, Greek, Finnish, Chinese etc) and that makes the process of the Russian language learning more comfortable for our students, especially for Beginners in Russian.
