Description

 Welcome to 'Russian in graphics'! 

Most of us want to learn a new language to be able to make new friends and communicate with them easily. In our daily life “to communicate” means to ask simple, mostly short questions, and provide answers to those. All you need to know is vocabulary + grammar, which will give you freedom of expression; however, that freedom can only happen if you know how to apply vocabulary and grammar. That is why I designed my course in such a way that you will be learning bits of grammar via dialogues on a specific vocabulary topic. This method optimizes the time you spend, and the skills and vocabulary you gain after each lesson. Finally, you will be able to create your own dialogues, which is one of the most pleasant aspects of language learning.

Please, don't undermine the importance of your Russian accent, which must be good enough to be easily understood by native Russian speakers. The fact is that Russian doesn't sound the same as it's written! So, if your plan is to learn just Russian LETTERS, please, change that mindset immediately! Letters will help you just to read signs in the streets, but not to properly pronounce Russian words and phrases. Please, go through Section 10 in the course, spend 2-3 hours in total watching engaging video lessons, and feel confident enough while talking to your Russian friends.

Hope to see you soon in the class!
