About Olga_L

I offer professional Russian language instruction to students of all levels of proficiency. Tailored courses matching your specific interests (literature, business Russian etc) can also be designed for you upon request.

WHAT WILL YOU NEED FOR YOUR LESSONS?

- If you are a beginner in Russian, you must be fluent enough in English to understand the explanations (at least a little above the Intermediate level). If you are more advanced in Russian, we can use English or Russian only during our sessions.
- You need a decent Internet connection (fast enough to suppost Skype voice call). Whether you want to use a webcam during our sessions, is up to your choice.
- A Russian keyboard is a plus, but not a must. You can use a virtual on-screen keyboard to type.
- In most cases, I provide all the materials in a digital format free of charge. In some cases, depending on the course you are taking, you might need to purchase some textbooks, but you do not have to do it until we complete several sessions and you make sure you are happy with our work together and want to continue.


I'm interested in innovative teaching methods and currently I'm exploring the capabilities of virtual worlds (such as Second Life) for language instruction. This is a fun immersive method that will help you improve your conversational skills, overcome shyness and start using your new language from the very beginning.
