""As someone with only a very basic understanding of the Russian language, I have found my lessons with Maria to accelerate this learning beyond all of my expectations. Not only are her lessons well thought-out and thorough, but they are also really enjoyable and rewarding. Recently, Maria was kind enough to walk me through translating one of my favourite Russian songs - meaning I can understand the lyrics for the first time. I couldn't recommend her enough to anyone else who is seeking to broaden their horizons, and learn more about this fascinating language and culture.""

"I am learning Russian as a beginner with Akademik and I am very grateful for the help and support I get. I find the teacher very patient, knowledgeable and ready to suggest how I can overcome problems as I meet them. I feel as if I am making good progress and enjoy the thorough grounding in the subject that I am getting. I would recommend Akadamik to anyone who is looking to learn, whatever their age or level of language may be."
