New York City / Russian

Russian 1

We get it, you’ve been dreaming about going to St. Petersburg, but you’ve taken a decade off learning Russian. But you’re ready for that all to change with Russian 1. This class is perfect for you if you're completely new to the language and want to get the basics down to start speaking conversational Russian.

Get ready for this and more

Pick up practical, conversational phrases like ordering the best dish off the menu and making small talk. Get into language foundations like the Russian alphabet, proper sentence structure, and rules of pronunciation. Build your vocabulary, from daily activities to food.



Say more than just hello

You'll walk away knowing how to confidently introduce yourself and make a damn good impression. You'll also learn survival phrases and expressions—like if we dropped you anywhere along the Trans-Siberian Railway, you'd be just fine. 

Community & Conversation

We've been told our classes feel more like dinner parties. You'll start speaking on day one, in a community of passionate, like-minded people, all working toward becoming fluent. We believe in getting away from just the textbook and diving into conversation.



Small Classes, Great Materials

Size does matter—and we keep 'em small! Average class size is 10 students and focused on practical, everyday use of language.


We use the best materials—from custom audio recordings and books handpicked by us. We'll send you details on which book you need to purchase after checkout. Questions? Call us for more details.
