Ever since I discovered Russian culture in college, I’ve been amazed by this country and wanted to learn the Russian language. Two years later I found Anastasia, and she has been my mentor ever since. I like to engage in Russian conversation every day, and I am thankful to Anastasia for providing me with regular Russian practice. My grammar can be awful sometimes, but I prefer to be engaged in a meaningful conversation rather than learning grammar from textbooks. I’m glad that Anastasia uses contextual methods in teaching me.
