Description

In this course you will learn to read the russian alphabet.

In doing so you will build a necessary foundation for learning the russian language, but also other slavic languages like serbian or ukrainian for example.

Anyone who has ever tried to use the subway in moscow, will easily understand the importance of this knowledge.

The video lectures contain:

  • The correct articulation of each letter, followed by three representative full-word examples.
  • Changes in the pronunciation, for example due to the position of the letter within the word.
  • Basic rules for the correct stressing of russian words.

The whole course is based on plenty of audio-examples, recorded by a russian speech therapist, who has been working successfully with the russian language since 1995.

To make memorisation easier, we have supplemented all examples with visual representations. All the words used have been carefully chosen so that the correct sound of the letters will be easy to grasp.

Additional written exercises will help you to solidly anchor your knew knowledge in your long term memory.

Because the individual progress depends on a lot of different factors, it is not easy to say how long it will take you to reach a state where you can fluently read russian texts. On average, substantial progress can be seen within a few days though.

Who is the target audience?
  • Everyone who wishes to learn the russian language.

Logopädin/Speech-Therapist

Ich habe klinische Psychologie sowie russische Sprache studiert und verfüge über langjährige Erfahrung als Sprachtherapeutin/Logopädin.

Von 1997 bis 2010 war ich an verschiedenen Moskauer Kliniken aktiv als Therapeutin tätig.

Daneben habe ich ab 2002 als Dozentin Vorlesungen an der Moskauer Staatlichen Universität für Psychologie und Soziologie, sowie an der Universität für Völkerfreundschaft "Patrice Lumumba" gehalten.

Seit einigen Jahren lebe ich in Österreich und beschäftige mich neben meiner medizinischen Beratertätigkeit auch damit, die russische Sprache im deutschsprachigen Raum zu fördern und zu unterrichten.

Das erste Ergebnis dieser Bemühungen war eine Kursreihe für touristische Einrichtungen in Österreich.

Als nächsten Schritt möchte ich jetzt gerne die Chance nutzen, online möglichst viele interessierte Menschen zu erreichen.

Das Konzept und die Inhalte meiner Kurse hier auf Udemy werden, so wie ich meine Erfahrungen mit dem Unterrichtsmedium Internet mache, immer weiter verfeinert und verbessert werden, es lohnt sich also, ab und zu einmal vorbei zu schauen.
