If you're interested in taking an Ann Arbor Russian course but aren't positive where to begin, Varsity Tutors is the only resource you need. Russian is the official language of one of the most important players on the international stage (Russia), plus several smaller states such as Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Belarus. Russian is also one of the official languages at the United Nations.

There are several reasons why you might be studying Russian. Perhaps you're a high school student at a local school like Pioneer High School or Skyline High School taking Russian as your foreign language. Maybe you're an undergraduate at the University of Michigan - Ann Arbor taking Russian as an elective course. It's even possible that you're not a student at all and are interested in Russian to make the most of an upcoming trip, enhance your resume, or simply out of an interest in the culture. Whatever your reason, enrolling in an Ann Arbor Russian class can help you reach for your potential.

What skills can I practice during an Ann Arbor Russian course?

The hardest part of studying any language is finding a way to truly immerse yourself in it. You can probably find Russian language media on the internet, but you have no way of knowing whether you're interpreting it correctly. Worse, the recording you're listening to cannot hear anything you say, meaning that you can't practice speaking Russian without a practice partner. Taking an Ann Arbor Russian class ensures that you have several practice partners at a set time each week, allowing you to keep honing your linguistic skills on a regular basis.

Every course is taught by an expert instructor who has been thoroughly vetted to ensure that they can answer any questions you might have. For example, let's say you're looking for some assistance with your written Russian. Your instructor can discuss the Cyrillic alphabet with you so that you know which characters you need to spell particular words. They can also provide feedback on all of your work, helping you understand where you're making progress and any areas that could benefit from a little more work.

Many students also take a formal class to study the more minute details of Russian. For instance, Russian nouns take different endings according to the role they play in a sentence. Thus, a Russian noun looks and sounds differently if it is the subject of a sentence or its direct object. Word order serves this function in English, allowing nouns to keep a consistent form no matter how they are used. Similarly, Russian nouns are gendered while English speakers never need to ask if their pencil is masculine, feminine, or neuter. Your instructor can help you come up with memorization tricks if all of the differences between Russian and English seem too confusing for you.

How will my Ann Arbor Russian course be structured?

Every course consists of a knowledgeable teacher meeting with their students at a set time over our exclusive live virtual platform, which functions like an online classroom that allows you to see and hear (and in turn be seen and heard) as though you were meeting up in person. Why would you want to physically commute to a course when you can make the course come to you?

You're also free to interact with your peers, and this is a good thing. Hearing your classmates speak Russian gives you access to a variety of different accents, more accurately simulating what it would be like to visit a Russian-speaking country. You can also help each other overcome learning obstacles while the teacher is working with somebody else, fostering a collaborative learning environment where everyone is free to pursue their goals. Sharing your classroom also allows you to split the bill, making formal Russian instruction more affordable than you might expect. If you ever think that you could benefit from personalized attention, you can also arrange private study sessions with your instructor on an as-needed basis.

Varsity Tutors understands how busy you are, so we designed our classes to fit into even the tightest schedules. We offer multiple class sessions simultaneously, including two and four-week options to make it easier to find something that works for you. New classes also launch every month, so you never need to wait too long to get started.
