The Media Russian program is designed for all Russian learners who aim to:

Media Russian program is intended to boost your fluency in reading comprehension of Russian informational texts: news, blogs, reports, articles, etc. It also aims to broaden your daily and business vocabulary, polish your grammar and improve your speaking skills.


​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.

Gain confidence

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.

Russian language courses at “Pa-russki!”

Whether you are a rational businessman, a passionate tourist or simply interested in Russian culture, you will benefit from having a profound knowledge of Russian. Attending Russian courses somewhere in your city would be effective, but the most convenient way would be to take an online Russian language course. You won't have to waste your time on traffic, and you'll also feel much more comfortable in your home environment. Choose proficiency There are plenty of Russian language courses available on the market. Some of them even promise to make you a fluent speaker overnight. But you need to be able to select the best course of this wide variety of choice - the one that will make you proficient in Russian. There are very simple criteria for choosing a proper course. People have different capabilities in learning languages - some catch new words on the wing, others need time and effort. The course should adjust to your pace of learning. The final goal is important too - a businessman needs to know what is written in contracts and invoices, while a tourist would rather study the architecture and art terms instead. If you learn Russian to impress your new relatives, you will need a different vocabulary. Be sure that we have a course that suits your needs. We are focused on our students success, so we use only the most efficient teaching methods.

Every part of every lesson is goal oriented, so that you have reliable knowledge in the end of each course. Our aim is to make you a confident speaker of Russian, with rich vocabulary and strong grammar skills. Choose advantages Just imagine adding a line to your resume that says you’re fluent in Russian! That certainly makes your chances in getting a high-paid job better. Imagine negotiating a million euro contract without an interpreter - this something to be proud of. Or - even better - imagine honest speaking about having read Tolstoi in original - that would make others think of you as of a truly sophisticated person. We believe you could have tried learning the language using some of other existing courses. But the fact that you are looking through this page right now speaks for itself - you will benefit from taking our online Russian course.

In the world where the information itself is the main asset, it is crucial to stay informed about the current events. It is important to be able to analyze different sources, sometimes the opposites, to be able to recreate the actual picture and to form your own opinion.

Russian-speaking countries are incredibly influential in spheres of international economics, culture, politics and so on. It would be logical to get acquainted with what Russian news tells about the happenings of the day. But what if your level of Russian simply is not strong enough to understand the language of the media?

Most of the media use a large but limited vocabulary, a certain set of abbreviations and idiomatic expressions. It’s like a language inside the language, and having analyzed this we’ve developed a special Media Russian language course that covers most of that “enclave” language. During the course, you will master the necessary terms and expressions, so that you will be able to easily comprehend the essence and the context of the news in Russian.

We’ll also provide you with a sufficient practice to memorize all the new information. We’ll read and discuss articles and news in Russian, paying some additional attention to the used constructions and vocabulary.

Depending on your preferences and needs, we can work with general information media or with some narrow-focused edition. We can also concentrate our efforts around one certain source of information.

Awareness is a key to correct decisions and strategies. If staying in the information vacuum is not for you, there is a point in mastering the language of the media. Improving your level as a Russian speaker is a pleasant bonus here.
