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.
Learn Russian in person!
You can participate in our in-person classes at one of our Budapest language centers or, in the case of private classes, in your office at work or in the comfort of your home. Using the true and trusted Berlitz method, our instructors will encourage you to communicate in Russian naturally and instinctively from the very first day.
Private Russian classes
Our private students can decide what topics they would like to focus on in their courses. This targeted and highly customized approach ensures that you will learn the words and expressions necessary for your chosen focus whether it is business or travel.
Learning Russian in a small group will give you a chance to improve your language skills in a supportive and interactive environment. The Berlitz method is the corner stone of all of our instructional activities in all of our classes; its goal is to immerse the learner completely in the target language. The group setting provides perfect opportunities to practice your freshly acquired conversational skills.

Russian courses for children
Grant your child the opportunity to learn languages in a playful and natural way. Our Russian courses are available for children from age 7 to 17.
Private classes for children
For children, the Berlitz experience is totally different from what they are used to in their regular school environment. There is no pressure on the children here; they do not repeat rules endlessly.They learn through fun activities and receive plenty of positive reinforcement while becoming confident in their knowledge as well as improving their cognitive and social skills in the process.
Group classes for children
Learning in a group is a real social and community building experience. We think it is very important for our young students to explore the new language together with their peers and build real relationships as they are doing so. We are expecting students of ages 7 to 17 in our groups whose composition is determined by age and level of competence. You may choose a closed group, or you may enroll your child in an open group designed to complement his or her school schedule.
