If you've been searching for a comprehensive San Diego Russian course, look no further than Varsity Tutors. Russian is an official language of Russia, Belarus, Kyrgyzstan, and Kazakhstan as well as the United Nations with an estimated 265 million fluent speakers worldwide. It is in the Slavic language group with other Eastern European languages such as Ukrainian, Polish, and Czech.

There are many reasons why you might want to study Russian. Certain high schools (including Torrey Pines High School and Mira Mesa High School in the San Diego area) allow students to take Russian to fulfill their foreign language requirements. Similarly, local colleges like the University of San Diego offer Russian classes. Studying Russian may also be a great idea if you're preparing for a trip to Moscow or interested in reading Russian literature in its original form. No matter why you decided to study Russian, let us enroll you in a San Diego Russian class to help you study the basics.

What skills can I work on in a San Diego Russian course?

One of the biggest benefits of taking a San Diego Russian class is the ability to set aside a set amount of time each week to work on your Russian skills. Learning a new language is virtually impossible without regular practice, but finding a practice partner on your own can prove difficult. Each class we offer is taught by a knowledgeable Russian expert who understands how to share the language with students of the appropriate level, giving you a tremendous resource to draw on if you have any questions about Russian pronunciation or vocabulary. More importantly, working with a knowledgeable instructor allows you to hear fluent Russian on a regular basis, allowing you to immerse yourself in the language.

Attending a formal class can also help you work on your written Russian. Most Russian words sound exactly as they are spelled, allowing Russian learners to sound out words instead of memorizing how to spell them. The language uses a 32-letter alphabet that differs from the characters you're accustomed to in English though, so your instructor might teach you memorization tricks to help you try to improve your writing. Your instructor can also review your written work to identify what you're doing well and any areas you could do better in.

You can also go over the finer points of Russian grammar. For instance, Russian nouns are gendered (masculine, feminine, or neuter) and use the case system, where nouns change their form and adopt different endings according to their role in a sentence. Word order serves a similar function in English, meaning that Russian learners coming from English have a brand new paradigm to learn. Your instructor can help you adapt to this strange new world through visual aids and sheer repetition of some of the more common nouns.

How does Varsity Tutors structure each San Diego Russian course?

Each course consists of a group of students led by an expert instructor on our live virtual platform. Our live virtual platform is basically an online classroom that allows you to see and hear both the teacher and your peers, so asking for help is as easy as raising your hand. You also don't need to worry about going anywhere, as our platform works anywhere with a stable internet connection.

Some students are initially skeptical of sharing their classroom with other students, but many end up finding it beneficial. You can hear your classmates speak Russian, exposing you to a variety of accents and dialects to more realistically simulate what it would be like to be on the streets of St. Petersburg. You are also free to help each other out as necessary, fostering a collaborative learning environment where it may be easier to develop a more comprehensive understanding of the language. Studying in a group also enables you to split the cost, giving you more value for your money than you could get by studying on your own. If you ever feel like you could benefit from individualized attention to understand a particular concept, you can arrange private study time with your instructor on an as-needed basis.

We understand how packed your schedule is, so we also try to make it as convenient as possible to pursue Russian. We offer multiple course sessions simultaneously, giving you plenty of options to choose from. Two- and four-week courses are also available, making it easier to find something that works for you. New courses start up every month, so we're ready to get you started shortly after you decide you're ready.
