Evening Language Courses are moving online (until further notice).

Now all of our courses, more than 20 languages from beginners to advanced level, are available as online courses using virtual classrooms. Continue your language learning from the comfort of your own home. Learn with us wherever you are in the UK.

Learn Russian with our Russian language courses, which are delivered using a proven method.  Our Russian language courses will give you the confidence to speak and write in Russian, and offer you a continued sense of progression and achievement.

Learning a new language, or improving on your current language skills, takes time and dedication. But don’t worry, our enthusiastic and highly qualified teachers will keep you motivated and engaged during your Russian lessons.

Why Learn Russian?

There are many reasons to learn Russian, perhaps one of the best being that Russia covers one-sixth of the Earth’s territory – meaning that knowledge of the language will automatically open the door to a significant number of people (144 million to be exact). It will also make travel to Russian-speaking countries much easier, safer and infinitely more rewarding. Speaking Russian also opens doors to employment in a wide variety of industries, from oil and gas, to teaching and interpreting.

The most widely spoken of the Slavic languages and the largest native language in Europe, Russian is spoken primarily in Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Ukraine, Latvia, Moldova and Estonia. On our evening courses you will be taught pronunciation, grammar and vocabulary by our team of professional, qualified teachers, gaining the confidence you need to speak in real-life situations.

How Our Russian Language Courses Work

Cactus group Russian evening language courses will introduce you to Russian through small group classes with native-speaking, experienced and qualified teachers, using the communicative approach and focusing on speaking and listening.

You will engage in pair-work and group-work during the course, maximising your opportunities to use Russian during class time.

Cactus also offers you the opportunity to keep up the momentum by progressing through the levels from Beginners (A1) through to Advanced (C1) and mastering this increasingly important global language which is highly sought after by employers in a wide range of industries.

Alternatively, if you have an unpredictable schedule, prefer one-to-one tutor input, or want to fast-track your language learning, then find out more about our Private Tuition for Russian.
