Practice and advance your Russian outside of the classroom with a native Russian-speaking peer! Learning Russian is more fun (and practical) if you get a chance to use it to interact with someone in Russia. These live, small group sessions allow you to apply what you are learning by taking part in an informal chat with a Russian peer. Each new topic also gives you an opportunity to learn a little more about life in Russia! Here’s how it works:

  • Topics are pre-defined and will also help reinforce some basic grammar points
  • We send a list of vocabulary and discussion questions a few days in advance of the session for you to prepare
  • Sessions are 45 minutes and consist of groups of 4-6 students
  • Sessions are led by young Russian peer tutors who are eager to meet Americans and share Russian culture
  • Sessions will be held Saturdays @ 11 am (EST) or Thursdays at 9 pm (EST). Pay attention to the course start date in the Dates & Costs section - the course that starts 04 Feb is the Thursday group, and 06 Feb is the Saturday group.

Take advantage of a series of 6 sessions for $40. For just a little over $6 per session, about the cost of a bagel (or блины) and coffee, you get the opportunity to connect with Russian culture and bring your language to life!
