Russian is a Slavic language spoken around the world and is concentrated mostly in Eastern Europe. It's the official language of Russia, Kazakhstan, Belarus, and Kyrgyzstan, and is also one of the United Nations' official languages. It's a valuable language to learn, and one of the top languages studied in schools throughout the United States. You can advance your career and social opportunities by learning Russian, and if you have relatives that speak Russian, you can get to know them on a whole new level. There are many beneficial reasons to learn Russian.

What can I expect to be covered in a Richmond Russian course?

You may notice right away that Russian uses a different alphabet than English. It's called the Cyrillic alphabet, and is used by many Eastern European languages. The Cyrillic alphabet is made up of 32 letters, and chances are, you'll spend a good deal of time at the beginning of your Russian language classes learning the letters and their pronunciation.

At the same time, you may learn some key vocabulary and useful phrases to start, because if you can begin conversing in Russian right away, however limited your skills are, you can begin to understand the language more quickly. Some students have short conversations in Russian after just one or two days of lessons.

It's an important sign of respect to learn the correct pronunciation as you learn Russian. It shows native speakers that you value their language, and it can make you sound more intelligent. Once you learn the Cyrillic alphabet, you may appreciate that nearly all Russian words can be sounded out the way they're written. In this respect, Russian can be easier to learn than English, where exceptions are the rule for spelling and pronunciation.

If you have a hard time picking up grammar, sentence structure, or memorizing essential vocabulary, you can request individual meetings with your instructor. Your entire session can focus on mastering the material you find especially challenging so you can catch up with the class in no time.

Why is studying in a Richmond Russian class better than studying the language on my own?

One thing to consider is that language only exists so people can communicate with one another. For such a topic, why would you study alone? Studies show the best way to learn a new language is to use it in as many natural or simulated situations as possible, and that's something you can find in a Richmond Russian class.

You also have a better chance to get pronunciation right, because you'll be studying with an expert instructor and a number of classmates who can correct you if you mispronounce something. They can also take the time to help you learn the correct pronunciation. It's far easier to learn the correct pronunciation of words the first time than to have to relearn words you've been mispronouncing. And did you know that you're solidifying the language in your mind when you help another student?

A collaborative environment like the one engendered in a live, online Richmond Russian class can help you learn and develop a deeper understanding of the Russian language, history, and culture. With fellow students that you can share thoughts, suggestions, and tips with, you may be more deeply involved in the language learning process and carve out more Russian language pathways in your brain than if you were simply sitting at home or the library with a book and some flashcards by yourself.
