    I enjoyed the class very much. The instructor Dmitri was of course very knowledgeable about the language, and also is a good teacher. He was well-organized, moved the class at an appropriate pace, and added interesting and useful information that is not in textbooks. The venue was comfortable and the class size was perfect. The course description accurately reflected the level of the class.

Discover the Best Russian Classes in NYC

The roots of Russian, like most European languages, can be traced all the way back to Proto-Indo-European. There are likely around 153 million native Russian speakers globally, and about 900,000 Americans speak Russian. Interestingly, Russian is an extremely popular language online, where, as of 2013, it was being used on six percent of all websites. This makes it an even more commonly-used language on the world wide web than German. The poet, novelist, and playwright Alexander Pushkin revolutionized Russian in the early 19th century by writing in the common vernacular of the time. His modernizing influence is being expressed in the language to this day. 

Why You Should Learn Russian in NYC

When you begin to learn Russian you are joining a global language community and a centuries old cultural tradition. Not only this, but Russian is the eighth most commonly spoken language in the world, which means that it is crucial to the regular operation of global markets and business, while playing a key role in international politics. 

New York City is home to the largest Russian-speaking community in the Western Hemisphere with approximately 600,000 Russian speakers calling it home. Brighton Beach and Sheepshead Bay are the two neighborhoods where most Russians call home in NYC. You might have the chance to meet a native speaker or two if you take an in-person Russian class in the city. 

Learning a new language is a terrific way to meet like minded people and plug into a new community. Who knows what opportunities might open up as you expand your network and begin conversing with others who have begun their own language journey. It's a fun hobby, and a great way to stay productive even in your free time. 

Studies have shown that multilingual proficiency can increase your earning power and your potential to find new professional and career opportunities. Knowing more than one language may even prevent cognitive decline across the speaker's lifespan. Learning a new language with a new alphabet is sure to be a challenge, but taking classes with structured lessons and curriculums is a sure-fire way to make progress and see practical benefits quickly. 

In-Person Russian Classes & Schools in NYC

Russian is a commonly spoken language in NYC and that means you can start a class there now. Learning Russian is easier and more efficient with a knowledgeable instructor to guide and give you feedback, plus you get to converse and try out new skills with your classmates. In-person classes make the starting-out process easy. 

When you take an in-person Russian course, everything you need is there waiting for you, including a professional native speaker who can provide you with attentive and relevant feedback. Having a dedicated space in which to learn makes the process and retention that much easier as you begin to get the feel for your new language tools. Join a thriving world of Russian speakers, and see where the sounds take you. 

One excellent feature of in-person classes is that the space, set-up, and materials are all there waiting for you. There's no need to worry about internet access, computers, platforms, or any other technology. Arrive with an open mind and the learning begins.

Virtual Russian Classes & Schools

There are benefits to online and in-person classes. Some students learn best in a community of peers at a physical location which prompts them to focus and use time efficiently. Others enjoy the freedom of virtual learning, which requires no commute and is often less expensive. What matters is finding the delivery mode that works best for you to learn Russian. 

Don't let a lack of nearby in-person Russian classes stop you from enrolling today. Numerous online Russian classes can be found at CourseHorse now, and they're delivered directly to your home or workspace. You may need to require your own materials for virtual lessons, but when learning a new language, this generally means that all you need is a computer and an internet connection.
