If you'd like help learning Russian, you can sign up for a Boston Russian course provided by Varsity Tutors. Whether you attend a local academic institution like Boston Latin or Match Charter Public School, you are in a language program at Northeastern University or Harvard, or you're working to learn Russian for career or personal reasons, these classes can enhance your language learning skills. Our live, online classes give you a chance to dig deeper into your study of the Russian language.

Russian is a Slavic language along with Ukrainian, Czech, Slovenian, and a number of others. More than 150 million people speak Russian as their first language, and another 115 million people speak Russian around the world. It's the official language of Russia and three other nations as well as being one of the official languages of the United Nations.

What content gets covered in a Boston Russian course?

There are some significant differences between Russian and English, not the least of which is the fact that Russian uses the Cyrillic alphabet. This is an alphabet of 33 letters, and most words in Russian can be sounded out the way they're written. This is similar to English phonics, but the rules are more consistent in the Russian language. Nouns in Russian have one of three genders: masculine, feminine, or neuter. Russian uses the case system to indicate the role the noun plays in a sentence, meaning the nouns change form and have different endings. This replaces the word order used by English to identify grammatical and logical relationships between words.

In addition to digging into these noteworthy differences, your Boston Russian class will likely consist of a combination of learning essential vocabulary, common phrases, and additional grammar and sentence structure. Because a language is so tied in with its people, you could also learn about some Russian history and culture. You may even study some Russian literature by famous authors such as Tolstoy, Chekhov, and Dostoevsky, among others.

What are the advantages of studying in a Boston Russian class?

The main advantage of studying in a Russian class rather than studying on your own is that you get to use language as it was meant to be used: to communicate with other people. Your live, online class is taught by an expert instructor who has demonstrated their Russian skills and ability to communicate well, both skills needed to provide effective Russian instruction. You have the ability to interact with them and the other students in your Boston Russian class, which can mean much more time to practice speaking Russian in a meaningful way.

If you're having any trouble memorizing vocabulary or other facets of the language, your instructor and your peers may be able to offer helpful suggestions. If you've been using memorization techniques you learned at school but which don't really work well for you, you have plenty of people who can tell you about other methods, such as the spaced repetition method or the building method. Maybe another student would be a better match for the techniques you use, and you could share with them.

This kind of collaborative class atmosphere has been shown to enhance students' ability to learn and process new information and retain it longer than if they only studied on their own. There's an encouraging team spirit that could develop in your virtual classroom, which can also give you additional confidence. You learn more easily when you're feeling confident, so there's great value in taking a Boston Russian course provided by Varsity Tutors.

If you're concerned about what will happen if you fall behind the class, you don't need to worry. You can request one-on-one time with your instructor to work on particular areas like verb conjugation, pronunciation, or anything else that you're finding particularly challenging. With the focused attention on your issues, you should be back up to speed with the full class in what seems like no time at all. This kind of flexibility is what makes taking a Russian course especially beneficial for all types of students.
