Russian course for beginners

I don’t speak any Russian, is the course OK for me?

Russian for beginners in Prague is a course for those English speakers who would like to get to know this amazing and diverse language. The course is designed for either absolute beginners who have never studied any Russian before or for those who’ve already taken a few first steps and need a guide for this exciting journey.

How does it work?

There are 2 options:

  • an individual course
  • a group course.

You and your tutor after the first class together schedule the classes according to your timeframe. So it’s totally up to you, whether to have 1, 2 or even 3 classes a week.

Why is your course so special?
