If you're interested in taking a Kansas City Russian course but aren't sure where to begin, Varsity Tutors provides one of the best products in the industry. Russian is spoken by an estimated 265,000,000 people worldwide, both as an official language in nations such as Russia and Belarus as well as the United Nations.

There are almost as many reasons to learn Russian as there are people who speak it. Local high schools such as Park Hill High School and Staley High School may offer Russian to give students a taste of studying a foreign language. Likewise, undergraduates attending local schools like the University of Missouri - Kansas City may take Russian to fulfill a general education requirement or even as part of their major. Those with a passion for literature might want to study Russian to better appreciate legendary authors such as Tolstoy and Dostoevsky, while those who enjoy traveling might want to make to most of an upcoming trip to St. Petersburg. No matter why you're studying Russian, let us enroll you in a Kansas City Russian class to help you work on your language skills.

What skills can I practice in a Kansas City Russian course?

The best way to study nearly any foreign language is to immerse yourself in it, but finding fluent Russian speakers isn't always easy. If you take a Kansas City Russian class provided by Varsity Tutors, you will have a set block of time each week to practice your Russian with a knowledgeable instructor who has undergone an extensive vetting process to ensure that they both know the fundamentals of the language and how to share it with others. Any questions you have can be answered quickly, allowing you to seek clarification whenever you're unsure about something.

You can also practice your written Russian during your course sessions. Russian uses the 32-letter Cyrillic alphabet, with a 33rd symbol that represents the soft sign, giving native English speakers a lot of new material to memorize. Thankfully, most Russian words are spelled exactly as they sound, so you don't need to memorize irregular spellings the same way you do in English. Your instructor can also show you how to outline your work to make it feel more approachable and review your completed assignments to provide an indication of how you're progressing.

You can also go over the intricacies of Russian grammar during your sessions. For example, Russian nouns are gendered and adopt different endings according to the role they play in a sentence. The closest English equivalent to this "case system" is word order, making Russian sentence structure dramatically different from what you're used to. Your instructor can use teaching techniques such as repetition and flashcards to help you understand proper Russian sentence structure rules.

How will my Kansas City Russian course be structured?

Each course consists of a group of students led by an expert teacher who attend classes using our proprietary live virtual platform. Our live virtual platform is essentially an online classroom that allows you to see and hear all of your classmates as if you were in the same room, making your course just as effective as a physical meeting without the corresponding logistical headache. Your teacher can see you, so asking for help is as easy as raising your hand.

While many students might not want to share their instructor with other students at first, doing so actually offers a variety of benefits. Hearing them speak Russian exposes you to a variety of accents that no instructor could replicate on their own, giving you a better idea of what Moscow sounds like. You can also work together to create a collaborative learning environment where everyone can work toward a deeper understanding of Russian. Explaining something to one of your new friends can help to reinforce your own command of a topic, while one of your peers might be able to explain something to you if you feel stumped. Best of all, studying in a group allows you to split the cost and make formal Russian instruction more affordable than you might think. If you ever feel like you need individualized instruction to grasp a particular concept, you also have the right to request private study time with your instructor on an as-needed basis.

We understand how busy people are, so we've designed our products with your scheduling needs in mind. We offer multiple classes concurrently, including two- and four-week options to help you find a fit for your lifestyle. New courses also launch every month, so you never need to wait too long before you can get started.
