Kyiv Online: Part-Time/Maintenance Russian

Short Course

Looking to keep up and advance your Russian language skills? Perhaps you have taken Russian in the past, but cannot fit a full-time intensive language course into your schedule right now. Or maybe you teach Russian but have limited opportunity to advance your own skills and practice speaking with others at your level. Whatever your situation, if you are looking to improve your Russian with a minimal time commitment, this course is for you!

Maintenance Russian is available at every level from A0 (beginner) to advanced. If you are a complete beginner, contact us to see if a beginner group is forming. With our colleagues in Kyiv we offer this part-time option with the following parameters:

  • Group instruction: 2 sessions x 90 min per week, 12:15-1:45pm EST (additional session times may be added based on demand; if there are no others at your level, instead you will receive 2 sessions x 45 min per week of individual instruction). Class size consists of 4-6 people.
  • Individual instruction: 20 lessons x 45 min each OR 15 lessons x 60 min each.
  • Once group class schedules are set, it is not possible to reschedule lessons; if you are in an individual course, lessons can be rescheduled with at least 24-hour written notice to your instructor.
  • Start dates are flexible; let us know when registering if you have a specific start date in mind. Usually we can get you set up to start study one week from when you register.
  • Extensions are welcome!

If this does not work with your schedule, we have options for 3 x 50 min per week (mornings) and 1 x 60 min per week (evening). If you have very specific scheduling needs, we can also accommodate individual/custom arrangements. If you are looking for a course with a higher number of hours per week and/or is credit-bearing, contact us via the Inquire now button.

"I absolutely love the class and plan to sign up for the next session. My teacher has noticed that I'm a strong grammar student so she pushes on speaking and reading instead." - Caroline Murray, Professional

"I have only positive things to say so far. We’ve been having a productive mix of conversation practice, grammar review, and vocabulary development, which is exactly what I was hoping to get out of the course. I think the homework is just the right amount. I look forward to the course every week!" - Kaylin Land, Student, McGill University

"Lena's a great instructor - she's engaging, keeps up a good pace, she's a very clear speaker, she's funny... couldn't ask for a better tutor. I really like the class size, and I feel like I've gotten a lot of new material to learn, and had lots of opportunity to practice what I already know. I'm really enjoying it." - Nick Knaebel, Professional
