What my students say
Russian verbs of motion study is full of surprises
First surprise is usually after you have gotten used to using Ездить-Ехать and Ходить-Идти.
That’s when you open a new chapter in your textbook and you say “You mean there are more?”
Surprise! There are more.
Even if you consider number declension to be more complicated, VOM are lot to consider, so you need advice and guidance from the most qualified source possible. ....
Constant use and a superior combination of lectures, textbooks and workbooks are needed to give you an edge.
Luckily, besides constant use, Metro Club VOM has all you need to get started and quickly be able to describe how and where things are going.
The course is in the usual three levels. Each level has text and video study tools covering 6 of the 18 pairs of verbs, 16 prefixes, 25 prepositions and myriad nouns used to accurately describe movement.
Beyond movement, other uses unrelated to motion are covered by these verbs and those are given as much importance and thought as the other “Main” uses.
Use of flow charts (called algorithms in course materials) train decision-making so choosing the proper verb becomes natural as you use the workbooks and when you hit the street.
Visuals are always on the page next to explanations showing you type of transport and info that makes usage apparent.
There is a workbook and a guide to usage of all these components for every level.
Beyond compare is a guide, in 7 steps, to help develop the habit of choosing and using the right verb and other components of a properly spoken or written sentence about motion.
I had nothing but success using these well compiled and comprehensive study aids and recommend them to anyone wanting to be able to say the same.

I've never learned so much in so short time
I've had many Russian courses over the years, but never learned so much in so short time. Marina's targeted and concentrated focus on specific topics gave me the confidence to speak more fluently.

I especially liked how Marina structured lessons
I especially liked how Marina structured lessons. That is exactly how people learn languages – not big abstract buildings, but concrete block by block. It was a true honor to study with her. She is an excellent teacher, and I cannot thank her enough for the structure, encouragement and creativity.
