Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

How to improve conversation skills in Russian?

Russians like saying that their language is one of the most difficult languages in the world. It doesn't mean it's unlearnable, though. But to learn the language properly and as painlessly as possible, you'd be better off with a conversational Russian tutor. Russian grammar really is quite something, so you need an experienced guide to help you navigate all the rules.

How to practice Russian conversation?

To practice speaking, you need to speak. It sounds annoyingly obvious, but it doesn't make it less true. A lot of language learners are shy when it comes to speaking, but there's no other way to get better at it. Talking with your tutor is the safest environment possible, so don't miss this chance. Use it for your benefit.

Russian conversation classes online or offline?

One of the first things you have to decide is whether you want to learn Russian online or offline. While offline learning may be good in some aspects, online lessons are greater because you don't have to go anywhere. It frees up some extra time for you. Plus, you get to learn in the comfort and familiar environment of your home. You can direct all your focus on the actual learning.

Do I need a native Russian-speaking tutor?

If you're a beginner, you're better off with a tutor who speaks your native language. This way, you can ask about anything that's not clear to you. Similarly, the tutor can explain things in detail so you understand things. But when you feel confident enough, it's a great idea to switch to a native speaker if you want to improve your spoken Russian. Non-native speakers can phrase sentences correctly, but they just don't always sound natural. Non-native speakers use more complex words and constructions where native speakers would throw in a phrasal verb and say things in a simpler way.

How to choose a great conversational Russian teacher?

There are several things you want to pay attention to when picking a tutor.
  1. Introduction video. It'll give you an idea of how this Russian conversation tutor is, how they speak, how they carry themself.
  2. Rating and reviews. Read what other students are saying and if they mention specifically that the tutor is great with conversational skills.
  3. Qualifications. In the tutor's profile, see if they mention any certifications they have.
  4. Have a trial lesson with a conversational Russian tutor. See if you like the way they speak. It might be a good idea to have your tutor as your spoken-Russian role model. What's also great about trial lessons, you'll be able to see if you click on a purely human level, which is extremely important for your progress.
