‘RLS are absolutely amazing! My husband had 2 teachers (Elena and Olga) both of whom have been incredible. From zero Russian he can now have a conversation and even read in Russian in just a couple of months! Thank you so so much RLS!’

Tatiana Giddings, UK

‘Елена is an excellent Russian Translator and Teacher. I have spend quite a bit of time in Russian speaking countries for work and pleasure and the small amount (so far) of Russian she has taught me has been invaluable. I look forward to a future of fluent Russian in the (hopefully) not too distant future!’


Justin Barton, UK, about Russian translation services and lessons

‘Natalia is a friendly and enthusiastic teacher who always tries to make our lessons fun but at the same time makes sure that all the basics are covered. Our lessons combine a structured approach and more spontaneous conversational practice, which I find useful. Natalia also always sets homework after each lesson to help me consolidate everything I’ve learnt. I would recommend Natalia as a Russian teacher.’


Ka Yee Julie Meck, UK, about Russian classes online

‘I had been making very slow progress teaching myself Russian using online tools, so I thought that i’d benefit from speaking to a real native speaker. I was offered a free lesson and I was not disappointed. I am now 16 lessons or so in, and feel I am making real progress. I was floundering with basic Russian grammar until my teacher pointed me in the right direction. My vocabulary and understanding has exploded. Importantly, she records the lessons so i can listen back to her corrections and advice, and she also supplies me with great source material to learn from.’

Why do I look for a native Russian teacher?

Real language

As everyone knows, the best way to learn a new language is by total immersion with native speakers. A language is like any living creature – changing day to day. Only local people speak the real modern language and are aware of all its intricacies.

Of course, not everyone is happy to move to a new country in pursuit of a second language! However, by connecting with a native Russian teacher online, you can experience nearly all the important aspects of immersion. Your tutor will take you beyond the standard vocabulary and grammar, to teach you the language as we speak it ourselves.

For this reason, your tutor must live in a Russian-speaking country. But with the growth of online communication, finding a native teacher from a country where Russian is the first language has never been easier. All of our tutors are native speakers and have a deep understanding of the language and its nuances.

Cultural immersion

In addition to language learning, working with an online Russian teacher can also be a valuable cultural experience. During your classes, you’ll also gain insights into culture, traditions, and history. This can be particularly useful if you plan to travel to Russia or work with Russian speakers in a professional context.

Then there is cultural immersion: food, books, cinema, personal relationships. Your tutor can introduce you to a new way of life and answer any questions you may have.

They can also clear up cross-cultural misunderstandings and fine-tune your language production. When is it appropriate to use this or that phrase? What about body language in the new country: is it the same? Does intonation matter in Russian and how and why? These are just a few sample questions which can be covered by a native teacher in your online lessons: things often omitted or skimped over in a standard classroom setting. With one of our online tutors, you’ll get key-knowledge for embracing the culture that you’d usually need to be on-site for.

So, to learn Russian fast, you do need native-speaking tutors who use this language in their everyday lives. Our native teachers are highly experienced and qualified professionals who are passionate about teaching Russian.

Are lessons by online Russian teachers effective?

Lots of people are wondering how to learn languages online. Are live online lessons with a Russian teacher an effective way?

How online lessons work

Indeed, Russian lessons online are very similar to individual lessons. Modern apps for video-conferencing allow you to communicate with your tutor in real time. This means that taking online classes is just as good as having face-to-face lessons. The teacher introduces the material, and gives the explanations and the assignments. The student, in his turn, listens to the tutor and does the tasks. Importantly, during the online sessions, the main focus is on the conversational language.

Using technology to the full

In fact, apps for real-time meetings offer a range of features to enhance your learning experience. It is a well-known fact that all organs of perception have to be involved in learning a foreign language. The “Sharing screen” function allows a teacher to demonstrate all necessary visual materials to a student, and to use audio-visual materials as well.


The other tool actively used during Russian online lessons is a chat. It serves both to teacher and student as an interactive whiteboard. The student and the teacher, for example, exchange the assignments, which can be marked immediately. Also, they can exchange messages to facilitate writing and, what is even more important nowadays, typing in Russian. During Skype or Zoom lessons the chat is used as a ‘prompter’. It allows a teacher to correct the mistakes immediately without interrupting the student.

In addition, our current students of Russian find it incredibly helpful to have the lessons recorded. Thus, they can replay any conference as many times as they need to practice new skills.
