OUR TEACHER: Tatiana Mechtchanskaia
Russian Language for adults new

ISKRA GENICHEVA, former student from New York:

“I really enjoyed taking classes at RCC. It was very important to me that our teacher, Ms. Tatiana, was speaking to us in Russian all the time which helped me break the language barrier. I liked the fact that the class was small and we were able to learn at the same pace. What helped me improve my Russian the most was that we didn’t learn strictly from a textbook, but also read Russian poetry and short stories, anecdotes, and articles from newspapers. I was looking forward to my lessons at RCC because they were interesting, fun and I was curious to find out what I would learn next”

JOSH SCOGGIN:

“I enrolled in the classes in late January of 2013. I began learning Russian while in college in 2004. I studied the language for 2 years and then quit. I’ve rededicated myself to learning Russian and am loving every session with Tatiana. The classes are fun, very learner friendly, and we even get tidbits of Russian culture throughout the lesson. I look forward to continuing on with this journey.”

JULIO MONTANO:

“I started Russian classes at RCC about 5 years ago, going on Saturday mornings, and taking extra lessons for a month or two before trips to Russia. I travelled to Moscow for work in 2006, and was fascinated by the city, and the people. I wanted to return on a private trip to explore and having knowledge of the language adds to the enjoyment of the visits. You know being able to read signs, and do some basics without having to depend on an interpreter all the time. I also thought that having the language would help build friendships with a couple of the people that I met and wanted to form stronger bonds with. I have found the classes at RCC great and Tatiana to be a wonderful teacher. I like having the ability to set my own pace for learning and having the small group allows Tatiana to be flexible on what is learnt. I have found the classes very helpful, as we take things slow, are able to practce and ask questions. The big plus is that beyond the grammar/vocabulary our teacher freely shares Russian culture and I believe truly enjoys giving the students that want it, an understanding of history and customs as they pertain to our lessons. I find it to be an exploration, where there is always something new to understand. The Russian language is full of idiosyncracies, and Russian culture filled with contradictions.”
