I like Anastasia's lesson very much. She is a very patient teacher. Russian is not an easy language to learn. Of course, we, learners, have to work hard but we need a patient teacher as well! I think I am very lucky to have her as my teacher. What I appreciate the most is that she teaches Russian from many aspects. In her lesson, I learn not only grammar but also pronunciation. She gives me chance to practice speaking even though I speak very slowly... Speaking skill is very important part of language because language is essentially a tool for communication. From my exerience of learning English (yes, Russian is my third language!) I believe that practicing speaking from the elementary level is very helpful. Since Russian has difficult grammatical structure, we tend to cram all the rules without speaking but she always reminds me of importance of speaking. Best of all, we can learn authentic pronunciation!
