Regular Russian Classes

Regular Russian evening language courses are conducted in four 10-week terms per year. We have classes from beginner to advanced levels. Each class has one 90 minute session per week unless indicated otherwise.
The fee for our Russian evening classes is $345 per term. The minimum number for our regular evening classes is five students, with a maximum of 10 – 12 students.

Beginners to Advanced

Beginners start as Elementary 1 (A.1.1) and go up to Elementary 3 (A1.3). Each of the elementary levels will take approximately one term to complete. Intermediate and Advanced levels vary.

Internationally recognized examinations can be taken from advanced levels. Please talk to us for a free informal assessment of your level.

Smaller Russian Classes

Occasionally we have only 3 or 4 students for a particular Russian class. As a cancellation of classes might cause disappointment to our students, we offer these smaller classes at different rates and conditions.

Classes with 4 students are $345 for a 9-week term. Classes with 3 students are $345 for a 9week term with 1.25 hours per week.

 

Russian Online Lessons

We offer online classes at $85 per 60 minutes especially for people who want to practice their conversation skills, but they can be for regular class work, too.
