RUSSIAN FOR FOREIGNERS

Learn Russian in Kyiv, Ukraine at Valerie’s School

Everybody knows that mastering the Russian language is tough.  Russian is very different from English or, say, French.  There are many grammar rules and the words change all the time, depending on cases used in each sentence.

One of Valerie’s School teacher’s heard a funny conversation between a Frenchman and a group of Ukrainians who were perfecting their French speaking skills.  The poor Frenchman complained that although he knows and can speak Russian, which he adores, he could not tolerate the fact that his name changes every time because of different cases.  While in English or French, it is always, for example, GildA, in Russian the name would be “GildIE”, “GildY”.  Or, for example, name “Anna” will change to “Annie” when you use verb “give” with it, or “Annoy” when you will say that you went for a walk with her.  Challenging?

Don’t be afraid to speak.  Don’t be afraid of grammar rules.  Study Russian painlessly with the experienced teachers at Valerie’s School. 

Valerie’s School offers a speaking only course.  No writing, no grammar!  Everything you learn, you will learn by practicing it in everyday conversation.  All of the classroom time is dedicated to training student’s speaking abilities.  Students also do numerous listening activities, repeat after the speaker, ask and answer questions non-stop. In other words, you will learn by ear, repeating after your teacher.  Each class you will receive handouts with exercises and all activities that were covered in class, so you will have the chance to revise the materials at home.  Just imagine, after the first class you will be able to name yourself, say where you are from, what you do and why you are in Ukraine.  Isn’t it great?  Russian lessons at Valerie’s School are fun, interesting and culturally relevant.  You will not be bored a single minute of your time spent in the classroom.

And remember – if you are living in Ukraine, you are learning Russian outside classrooms.  Your will have continuous contact and interaction with native speakers, so go for it! Don’t sit on the sidelines.  Speak Russian.

Whatever your reasons for studying Russian – career, traveling, culture or pleasure – we are here to help you!
