Why learn Russian?

Russian is estimated to be spoken by 144 million people worldwide, making it a top 5 language in the world. It also has huge cultural and social implications, with many large corporations and tourist destinations located in Russian speaking countries. Learning Russian can provide great opportunities for both business and travel.

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 it easier to learn Russian through proven language-learning techniques. At the core of the Berlitz Russian classes is the Berlitz Method, which focuses on immersive language learning. When you begin your Russian classes with Berlitz, 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 to learn Russian fast.

Berlitz Russian classes 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, word choice and much more. This Russian cultural training sets the Berlitz Russian classes apart. After learning Russian with Berlitz, you will feel confident speaking the language with native speakers in any setting.

Frequently Asked Questions

Both our private and group classes are made up of 45-minute units, including a 5-minute break. Our students normally take two units at a time, so the minimal length of one session is 90 minutes (2 units) with breaks as needed.

Our international group classes (Berlitz Live Online) last either 60 or 90 minutes, depending on group size.

The ideal level of intensity varies from student to student, but a minimum of two sessions per week (2X2) is generally recommended. During the free consultation prior to enrollment, we explore, among other things, what your expectations are about reaching your goals and how much time you can devote to language learning in general.
