Diving into the speaking environment is considered to be the most effective way of studying any language. But oftentimes travelling to a Russian-speaking country only to learn a language is not an option – due to busyness, the lack of time and travelling costs. This is the case when Russian movies can offer an affordable alternative to immerse yourself into the speaking environment staying in the comfort of your home.
Watching Russian movies is not only about learning the language. A Russian director would film Russian traditions, habits, superstitions without any distortions, as they really are. You can get acquainted with the mindsets, the typical worldview, the history and all the weird peculiarities that have always surprised you about the Russians. Choosing a modern movie will let you get to know the latest slang words and expressions that are commonly used but are typically ignored by traditional textbooks.
But to make the most out of watching the best Russian movies, it is better to have a teacher who is also a native speaker around you to explain every complicated moment. She’ll draw your attention to the most important words and expressions, extraordinary constructions and how they are used in different speaking situations. As a bonus you’ll get the explanations for non-standard pieces of the Russian humour, the typical way of life, the thought course – something you can’t get to know without a native speaker.
