Time is the most valuable asset now. We’ll help you to learn Russian language, spending only 15-30 minutes a day or 60 minutes a day if you choose an intensive course. No homework! You choose how many minutes a day you study. There is only one condition — you have to study daily.
Having many years experience in teaching Russian, we are pleased to introduce you the comprehensive video courses with interactive communication. You’ll get daily video lessons and once a week you’ll talk to your teacher via Zoom to discuss your progress. We have different levels: for absolute beginners (Levels 1, 2, 3), for those who know 200-500 words (Levels 4, 5), otherwise you may choose special courses for A1, A2, B1, B2 levels.
Course for Beginners:
This is what you have to start with if you do not know Russian. Pre-recorded video lessons are sent by email every day, thirty days in a row.
You have two options, choose depending on the time you have available:
1. The Fast and the Furious. If it is important to learn Russian fast, we’ll send you videos of our intensive course. You have to allocate 60 minutes a day. Within a month you’ll pass Levels 1, 2 and 3.
2. Mission Possible! If you can not devote so much time on a daily basis, choose the regular course. You’ll move with steady steps, allocating 15 minutes a day. You’ll have the same program with the first group. They’ll complete it in one month, you’ll do the same in three. One level = one month.
The beginners’ course allows students to quickly start reading and talking in Russian.
The results for beginners: on completion of the course you will speak and read basic Russian, you’ll know approximately 300 keywords, recognise in speech about 500-600 words and be able to construct over 1000 sentences using this vocabulary.
Course for Advanced Learners:
If you know more than 500 words, if you can read and make simple sentences, this course is for you. We’ll help you to speak basic Russian with confidence — we named this course Braveheart. Many people are afraid to start speaking the language they learn, we’ll support you and help you to be fluent in your speech, using the words you know. It is still the beginner’s level. But — after completion of this course — you’ll become a very confident beginner who can start and maintain any conversation in Russian language. There are two levels (Level 4 and 5).
We’ll send you access to 30 video lessons, each lesson is 45-50 minutes. You can move with your own speed, watching one lesson a day or few lessons a week.
The results for the advanced group: we’ll increase your active vocabulary (the words you use in speech) to 700 words and your passive vocabulary (the words you recognise in speech) up to 1000 words. You’ll repeat all main grammar rules, learn by heart useful phrases and sentences.
HOW IT IS ORGANISED?

I love teaching! Although since I came to Cyprus 20 years ago I deal mainly with publishing, promotion, PR, I have never stopped to think about teaching (being a professional University graduate teacher of foreign languages), I opened my own «frontistirio» (private educational centre), organised lectures and seminars. I was asked many times by my clients and friends to give them a bit of advice on how to learn Russian in an easy and fast way. I looked through everything that it was available on the market but I did not find anything that would really be reliable and would help to speed up the process.
Finally, five years ago I wrote express-courses myself. I combined the best methods I knew, to prepare all texts, exercises, audio, and video materials. Time has proofed – the courses work! I am excited to present them to more students!
Busy people think that learning a new language requires years of hard work. That is why many of them do not even start, being sure that they will give up soon because they know – the main value is their time, and they do not have much time for any long-term commitment. My courses were created to help.
If your business has Russian clients or partners, if you plan to travel to Russia or you have Russian friends — these courses are for you. Especially, if you are a business owner or a CEO. Executives need to take clients out for lunches and dinners, need to network not only with business people but with their families and friends. Basic knowledge of Russian would facilitate these duties, good knowledge of Russian would help to get new business partners and friends.
How many times have you thought it would be nice to know some basic Russian? I’d like to say – the time has come! Do something about it!

Feedback, comments and recommendations from students
I absolutely loved this course and I’m glad I made this decision; it is probably the best I have made. I have been wanting to learn Russian for quite some time now but never made the first step thinking it was intimidating. This course has not only taught me how to speak and write in Russian but also to sing and think.
It is amazing how Natalia indeed managed to keep everyone interested and alert, looking forward to the next lesson. I found this course to be very helpful down to every detail, Natalia is very methodical and has put together an incredible series of material. The course is interactive using graphic material making it fun to study and learn.
The results are amazing. What has been achieved in 30 days is formidable! Natalia has a wonderful teaching system that really works. I have been communicating with my clients and colleagues in Russian and the impact was significant.
Everyone appreciated my new skills and they could not believe that I have been learning Russian only for a month. It seems that with these lessons a new universe of opportunities opened both in my business and personal life. I would definitely recommend this course to others. Natalia is very professional and enthusiastic, her method of teaching makes learning Russian relatively easier.
I found important Natalia’s warmth, positive approach and general enthusiasm. Russian is very scary so creating a feel good/comfortable atmosphere is very helpful to learning.
This course is an excellent gateway to Russian led by a warm and enthusiastic teacher. We not only learned loads of great vocabulary and useful phrases but also got an insight into Russian culture and geography.
This course is different from others. I will recommend it from all my heart!
It has nice presentations, with many and diverse information not just about grammar and language, but about the culture, history, geography, mentality.
And the fact that one of the main activities is constant repetition, gave us confidence and made the lessons seem much easier.
Natalia Kardash courses teaching Russian to beginners are the best value one could find! The online course was excellent. My Russian-speaking family members were quite surprised at the progress I made in 30 days.
Natalia Kardash herself as a teacher, her methodology and her personalized approach is the difference between this course and others. She is with her student every day, bright, smiling, cheery and full of enthusiasm. Perhaps the most important element is her positive attitude, always pushing forward, accepting students’ mistakes without showing any frustration. Always encouraging, never criticising, helping her students get over their difficulties.
Joining the advanced group was a great opportunity for me to refresh my Russian vocabulary and grammar and be able to adapt in real life conversations that will be useful in the future for my development.
It goes without saying that I will recommend to other students. The personal approach and the attention to the personal needs of each student makes all the difference.
The course is tailored made to the exact needs and specifications of each group and what they want to achieve in the long run.
Most important was the timing of the course and its compact duration. One month’s time – I found it very attractive.
I would definitely recommend the course to my friends. It was well structured, well presented, compact and productive.
Best investment I could have made with my time during one month!
The course was very interesting and helpful. I recommend it to other people who are interested to learn Russian. The most important for me in this course was the fact that I could study from the comfort of my house and at the time I choose.
I value and appreciate Natalia’s patience to help me with any difficulties I had. I am convinced that basic knowledge of Russian is helping much in business, I am Hyatt hotel manager, we have many Russian guests. Withing a month I could learn enough words to start “small talks” without clients.
The course was well planned, learning materials are easy to access with the basic objectives of training, particularly audio that can be downloaded and listened to offline.
Natalia is a fabulous teacher, I am looking forward to taking more online classes. Our teacher loves interacting with us, she is teaching with passion, excellent preparation, flexibility, organizations skills, intensive work.
I liked learning about geography and history that I have never found in other courses.
