Individual Russian Lessons


Our partners offer individual lessons with a private teacher throughout the year, at varying intensities and with flexible course durations. Topics covered in the lessons are geared to your interest. The focus can be on conversational Russian, written Russian, Business Russian, Russian Literature and History and many more.
If you are looking to fully immerse in the Russian language and culture and want to progress fast, the One-to-One lessons will be the best match for you. Some of our partners can even arrange lessons to take place either at school or at your host family’s home, ensuring you speak Russian as much as possible and other languages as little as possible.
