Здравствуйте!

Russian language coursesThe language of Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Leo Tolstoy, Alexander Pushkin, Anna Akhmatova, Vladimir Vysotsky, and many other brilliant classical and contemporary writers. This is the national language of the largest country in the world – Russia, and also other countries. About 300 million people speak Russian. It makes it one of the top five most widely spoken languages in the world. Russian - one of the official languages of the UNO and many other international organisations.

The knowledge of Russian opens up new opportunities for those who want to find a prestigious and challenging job, participate in cultural and scientific projects or do business with or in a country with great economic potential and prospects for investment.

You'll need to learn Russian if you plan to visit Moscow, St Petersburg, plan a jouney on the Trans-Siberian Railway (possibly to Vladivostok) if you are going to admire the beauty of the Altai and Lake Baikal, the unique and inspiring Russian architecture, if you get to know Russian art and endeavour to understand the Russian soul. Knowing Russian will help to eradicate language barriers for tourists and enable them to understand everything while in this great country.

No doubt about it-it is also a beautiful, melodic, gentle, although difficult to learn, language. The Russian scientist and writer Mikhail Lomonosov wrote the following about this language:

"Charles V, the Holy Roman Emperor, used to say that the Spanish language is for God, French - for friends, German - for enemies, Italian - is appropriate for women. But if he were skilful in the Russian language, of course, he would add that it was appropriate for all of them, because he would find in it the splendor of Spanish, the vivacity of French, the strength of German, the delicacy of Italian, besides the wealth and strength in expressions from Greek and Latin languages."

What do you know about Russian?

The Russian language belongs to the group of East Slavic languages, along with Ukrainian and Belorussian. One of its special features is the use of the Cyrillic alphabet, which dates back to the ancient Greek alphabet. The Russian alphabet consists of 33 letters: 21 consonants, 10 vowels, and two silent letters - the soft sign ь and the hard sign ъ. At the same time, one of its most characteristic features is the reduction of unstressed sounds - you need to save energy while speaking, due to Russian cold winters. Also worth mentioning is the system of cases and verb conjugations with different endings and word stress that does what it pleases. The word order is also strictly fixed. Because of this, learning Russian is difficult, but interesting.
