The Media Russian program is designed for all Russian learners who aim to:
- Master the language of modern media
- Raise fluency in reading comprehension of informational texts
- Broaden daily and business vocabulary, polish grammar skills
- Gain confidence in everyday and business communications
A great course for those who specifically want to improve their understanding the language of the Russian media. It also helps to expand the vocabulary greatly, so I totally recommend it.

To join the Media Russian program we expect your level in Russian to be A2 or higher. The program can be adapted to your specific needs and preferences.
At first we introduce you to the list of specific terms, expressions and abbreviations that are widely used in many types of informational messages.
As a next step you are immersed in the language of modern mass media while listening, reading and translating informational texts in Russian together with a native teacher.
At the end of the text processing we invite you to share your opinion on the facts, statements or ideas from the text using appropriate vocabulary gained from reading.
During the practice you start to master media vocabulary, learn lots of phraseological units and discover multiple meanings of certain words.
In time, such practical training gives you more confidence in your everyday and business communication on the whole. Your comprehension skills dramatically increase.
You begin to feel more comfort while listening to news and reports on Russian TV-channels and radio-programs, as well as while reading official documents in Russian.
The Media Russian program is provided via Skype. Learning materials (in electronic format) are included in the price.
Lessons that were cancelled/rescheduled with a 12 or more hours notice will not be charged.
