Our teaching philosophy can be summed up in a single yet powerful quote:

Learning a language involves, for our students, challenges to their cognitive abilities, their self-esteem and, frequently, their social skill. It is a ‘courageous process’. It is thus vitally important to know how our learners feel, what they need and what helps them to be successful. Such knowledge is half the secret of how to be a good teacher!

- Jeremy Harmer

Russian language lessons for kids

Raising bilingual kids is a wise investment that is sure to pay off throughout their lives. Kids are quick learners and it never seizes to amaze just how quickly they can absorb a new language. This is why it is especially important that they maintain their own native language while in another country.

Although there are many schools in Canada where your kids can learn Russian, sadly enough, many of them approach teaching kids Russian in a broad and systematic manner without focusing on them individually.

Having a personal Russian language teacher makes the learning process easier to acquire and joyful to experience because each Russian language lesson focuses on your kids' unique learning style and fluency level.

Lessons for young learners include:

Introduction to Russian Literacy
Reading
Writing
Speaking
Listening

ESL (English as a second language) lessons are also available for Junior and Senior Kindergarten, along with Grades 1-3.

Each student is evaluated based on their current fluency level in order to prepare customized materials that are best suited for them individually.
