ONLy 90 DAYS From Frustration to Confidence in Your Russian!
A comprehensive audio course
for Advanced learners
in practical everyday Russian
Understanding spoken Russian can be overwhelming
Listening comprehension is the hardest skill to learn
If you are NOT building this skill in the right way, it can be very challenging - even after years of study.
LACK OF VOCABULARY, pronunciation rules make it difficult to recognize familiar words when they are spoken, plus two more reasons why listening comprehension is so hard.
fast connected speech
When words are closely connected:
- Several words may appear as one
- Small words may hide between long ones
- Some words deteriorate so much that you can’t recognize them (“щас”, “тыща”, “пийсят”)
The TRANSLATIon trap
When you're trying to translate in your head every word that you hear, it slows down your processing and overwhelms you, and as a result - discourages you from participating in the conversations.
Why free resources won't help you much in understanding spoken Russian
If you're trying to work on your listening comprehension skills on your own, you're may be saving some money but definitely wasting a lot of time. Here is why.
YouTube channels and courses
You won't find any free online Russian language resources that focus on systematic development of listening skills for Intermediate and higher levels.
Language exchange partner
Native speakers are rarely able to clearly explain vocabulary & grammar. Sessions don't have a system and don't last long. But this can supplement a study program.
Movies with Russian subtitles
This may work as a listening development tool but only if it’s used in a very specific way because our brain can't focus on two tasks at the same time and always choose the easiest one. If it has a choice of reading Russian subtitles or listening to the fast speech, guess what it will do? It will read subtitles instead of listening.
THE BOTTOM LINE: the vast majority of language learners who reach higher levels of proficiency in Russian are those who seek out professional help. If you’re looking for more efficient use of your time, it’s always better to invest in your education.

How it works
My system is based upon several neuroscience discoveries.
Multitasking is a myth
Our brain can fully focus on only one action at a time. When we attempt to focus on more than one task, our brain choses the easiest one and ignores the others or constantly switches back and force from one task to another and is not able to master any of them.
1. Listening comprehension skills
2. Reading comprehension skills
Less is more
Our brain works more effectively in short sessions of 30-45 min. rather than spending hours going over the same material. Content that is broken into smaller portions within these sessions is easier to assimilate.
Memorizing = building strong neuron connections
The more pathways & stimuli for each word you give your brain to work with, the stronger connections it will build and the longer it will store the word. Multisensory channels and repetitions are the most effective stimuli for memorization.
You’ll work with the language (words and grammar structures) in a variety of ways.
Active learning is not enough
Alternating active and passive learning is actually more efficient than if you were to just actively learn.
During active learning, you’ll be learning active, or speech production skills (speaking or writing) and passive, or speech reception skills (listening and reading).
Why it'll be easy for you to study with us
Learning any language is not a sprint but a marathon.
