You will be able to read and write Cyrillic

To get around Russia like a local, it is essential that you can read the Russian writing system, Cyrillic. And you can impress those locals by showing them just how well you can write this beautiful and elegant script. This is why we have tons of video lessons that teach you to read and write Cyrillic.

You will go as deep as you want to.

We start you with the basics. Then, you choose just how much you want to learn from over 140 hours of repeatable lessons. From ice-breakers and conversation starters to in-depth grammar explanations, it's your choice.

You will become proficient in less time than you expect.

You will always have up-to-date lessons and reference material.

Our courses are constantly being improved and expanded upon. They're not stuffy old textbooks. Instead, they're more like living encyclopedias that are regularly updated with fresh changes and vocabulary.
