Since 2007 we have been making various language teaching projects, and over these years we have created a lot of material over many different platforms. We decided to bring them all together on this website. We are always coming up with new projects, so be sure to check back regularly!
The beginner courses «Чемодан» (Suitcase) (А1) and «Московские каникулы» (Moscow Holidays) (А2) are available as videos with subtitles for many languages (and growing). The course is based on everyday situations. Alongside every video on the website there are grammar guides and various types of exercises. An introductory course on phonetics «Букварь» that's part of this course will help those who don’t know the Russian alphabet and can’t even read.
Episodic educational videos on Russian culture and history based on the concept of guided walks, with Anna as a guide, around Moscow. Aimed at those who already have some grasp of the Russian language (level A2 and above).
The videos are a good fit for improving all aspects of language skills: speaking and listening, reading and writing. All the videos have or will have subtitles in Russian and English. The episodes and attached materials are available here on this website, but you can also watch the videos separately on our YouTube channel.
The material is most suitable for when you are already somewhat proficient in Russian (level B1 and above). To help you understand these videos there are Russian subtitles. It is also possible to download the texts in PDF in Russian and in English.
On you YouTube Channel you can watch the videos from all our projects:
- Russian course for the beginners "Чемодан" (Suitcase) (А1) and "Московские каникулы" (Moscow Holiday) (А2) with subtitles on various languages (16 languages),
- "Russian Poetry" - for the lovers of Russian litteraure,
- "Around the Country" - cultural information,
- "Traditions and History" - for those who are interested in Russian traditions, culture and history,
The mobile app Talk2Russia is for beginners who are just starting to learn Russian as a foreign language. It includes a course on phonetics and videoclips for levels A1 and A2. As well as exercises it contains a brief grammar reference guide. The app is available (!NOT available at the moment) to download for free from the App Store and Google Play Store. This project has been realised through a grant given by MAPRYAL and the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation. As authors and creators of the app, we continue to support it on a technical level.
