Whether you are taking a Russian elective at McKinley High School or studying to be a Russian teacher at University at Buffalo, Varsity Tutors can enroll you in a Buffalo Russian course to aid your learning. In addition to being an official language of the United Nations, Russia is also the official language of Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, and Kyrgyzstan. It is spoken by over 265 million people worldwide. Students with an interest in international business or traveling abroad can benefit from learning how to speak Russian.

Picking up a new language is a challenge, however, and extracurricular involvements, a busy class schedule, or a part-time job can make it that much tougher. Traditional classroom environments may not provide everything that you need to excel as a Russian language learner. Perhaps your current Russian class does not allow you to converse with other students in Russian, or maybe you have trouble getting one-on-one attention from your instructor. Online courses can provide extra support and help you succeed at learning Russian. By combining features of both traditional and digital classrooms, courses accommodate students of all skill levels and learning styles.

What can I learn from a Buffalo Russian course?

English-speaking students who want to speak Russian have a lot to learn, as English and Russian are quite different linguistically. For example, Russian uses a totally different alphabet than English. The Russian alphabet is also called the Cyrillic alphabet, and it contains 32 letters plus an additional soft sign. However, once you know the Russian alphabet and the pronunciation of each letter, pronouncing Russian words comes more easily-almost all Russian words can be "sounded out" based on their written spellings. This is another deviation from English, since English spellings are often inconsistent with their pronunciations.

Once you know how to translate Russian sentences, your instructor may choose to have you read Russian literature. Throughout its long cultural history, many famous authors have come out of Russia: Tolstoy, Chekhov, and Dostoevsky, among others. While you can certainly read their most famous texts in English, the beauty and meaning of language is often lost in translation. By learning Russian, you are opening yourself up to the opportunity to read these texts in their original and intended versions and you can come that much closer to the world's most famous literature.

How does a Buffalo Russian class help me learn?

All Buffalo Russian classes are taught completely online. However, online classes also incorporate elements of traditional classroom environments. For example, the Live Learning Platform connects students and instructors through video chat. You can always see your instructor during a session, the same as if you were taking a class in person. Additionally, the virtual classroom includes a digital whiteboard to assist with taking notes and video chat where students can review, discuss, and share knowledge about Russian. Students who are more advanced have the opportunity to assist those who need additional support, and all students benefit from collaborating. All courses are taught by highly-qualified and enthusiastic instructors.

Perhaps you are feeling uncertain about a certain lesson in the course and would like to meet with your instructor to discuss it further. No problem! You can request time to meet individually with your instructor. Take this time to review any questions or concerns you have about the course content. You can also review your learning goals, progress, and future plans regarding the Russian language. Individual meetings provide students with the opportunity to receive detailed feedback, so you can always stay on track with your Russian language learning.

Students in a Buffalo Russian class also benefit from the convenience and accessibility of online classes. Taking classes online means that you can learn Russian from any location with an internet connection. Learn Russian while lounging in bed, sitting in a booth at your local coffee shop, or studying at the library at the University of Buffalo. New classes begin each month and are offered in two-week or four-week increments, so you can choose the pace and location that best suits you.
