Russia is one of the largest countries in the world and dominates the Eastern European landscape from an economic and cultural standpoint. For these reasons and many more, Russian is one of the most important languages in the world. At Berlitz, we make learning Russian easy through proven language-learning techniques.

At the core of our Russian lessons is the Berlitz Method, which focuses on immersive language learning. When you begin your Russian language learning with us, you will begin speaking the language immediately. Our Berlitz-certified native-fluent instructors are professionals in both Russian and these immersive language techniques, allowing them to guide you and help you learn Russian.

Our Russian lessons also focus on cultural lessons that allow you to better understand how to use the language. While learning the fundamentals of Russian is important, it is just as important to understand the way the language is used. This includes nonverbal communication signals, hand gestures, and word choice. This Russian cultural training sets Berlitz's Russian classes apart.

After learning Russian with Berlitz, you'll feel confident speaking the language with native speakers in any setting.

Berlitz offers face-to-face Russian courses in many schools in France. Find a Berlitz school near you and discover the course options!
