Welcome to the Russian Classroom!
I was teaching the Russian language for 10 years in Russian high school in Siberia, afterwards I was teaching Russian as a foreign langugage in the United States. Among my students were adults of different ages, college and university students, schoolchildren from elementary through high school. Most of my adult students were tought via Skype. For the Skype lessons, I have developed a special strategy with following components:
- - the first and the most important is to speak as much as possible in Russian (ideally the whole 60 min),
- - the second is to have an individual lesson plan and a homework for each student prepared in advance along with all study materials,
- - the third is to have a flexible schedule that can be adjusted upon student's request.
