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.
