We tried our best to answer the most frequently asked questions


Before the lesson you will receive a link to join the virtual classroom where the lessons will take place.

During this first lesson we will:

  •  set clear goals that will inspire you to study
  • determine your level of Russian
  • choose a teacher for your lessons
  • discuss the posibilities of a virtual classroom

If you have studied Russian before, part of the dialogue will be held in Russian. Do not hesitate if you think you have trouble speaking, the dialogue will be directed by the methodologist. This is not an exam!

The trial lesson is conducted by methodologists who specialize in introducing students to the school.They all know Russian well, have a pedagogical education, and have specially studied the work style of each of the school’s teachers.

Therefore, any of the methodologists can do several important things:

  • determine exactly from what level the student should continue his studies
  • show how the virtual classroom works
  • сhoose a teacher who is suitable for the student.

It’s not just about the level of knowledge, but also about the style of conducting classes and even the pace of communication.

Treat it as a full-fledged lesson:

  • Spare the lesson 45 minutes of your time, and put your other things aside.
  • Plan beforehand some questions that you would like to ask our methodologist.
  • Think about your learning goals, so that you can discuss them with your methodologist and make a realistic studying program.
  • Join the lesson via computer or laptop with a camera, not via your smartphone.

This way you will get some benefits from this trial lesson even if you won’t continue studying with us.

Not many schools besides Leader can offer these 3 opportunities simultaneously:

1. We work with certified teachers. Our teachers are sociable and are able to engage into dialogue even the most shy students.

2. In addition to studying, we offer our students free meetings in conversation clubs. Often native speakers take part in those clubs.

3. Our school cooperates with international networks of Russian schools, adopting their teaching methods.

Results are noticeable when both the teacher and the student do a good job. The quality of our teacher’s ways of theaching is verified, while the results you will see for yourself. At the end of every semester you will undergo a test to discover how much you have improved. You check the improvement of communication skills at the meetings of our talking clubs, communicating with people from different countries. If it is uncomfortable to study with a particular teacher, it will be possible to change it.

This is a controversial question, and it depends on various factors. What are your goals on learning Russian? What level do you aspire to achieve? There are 6 levels in total: after mastering A1 you will be able to express yourself using some pre-learned phrases and expressions, after completing C2 you will be able to speak at a native’s level. If you need Russian for your work, usually B2-C1 is enough. It will take a year to master around 2 to 3 levels. Depending on the intensity, if you take individual lessons you can achieve B2 in about a year.

Of course you will. Even in your 50s and 60s. We have students around these ages, and it doesn’t mean they learn slower than the others.

We recommend taking individual lessons.

In both cases, the teacher works with you, individualizing the learning process as much as possible. But you get a number of advantages by working with us:
– We verified in advance the qualifications of each of our specialists and we help improve it
– During the trial lesson, we try to make an ” ideal pair” of teacher and student, ensuring that the teacher will be fitting according to the style of teaching, age, pace of speech and other important features for the student
– We make a schedule and monitor it: there will be no sudden postponements
– We are able to temporarily or permanently replace your teacher with a teacher of the same or higher qualification (for example, a native speaker)

You can reschedule your lessons if there is a solid reason for that. You just should warn your teacher in advance. The schedule itself is standard: 2-3 times a week. You get to agree on the schedule with your teacher. For those students who have an unstable schedule we choose teachers that are willing to accomodate

For you to achieve noticeable results we recommend you to take at least two 50 minute lessons a week. But we do have students that only take a one hour lesson a week. The effectiveness of their studies is on their consciousness.

Individual classes can be postponed if there is a good reason for it, but you must notify your teacher beforehand.


Of course! We understand that the effectiveness of studying depends very much on the correspondence of the work styles of the teacher and his students, and we would like to help you find the most suitable teacher. The only thing we do not encourage is replacing your teacher without a reason. You can change the teacher during individual lessons, or move to another group, but we would really appreciate if you could explain us the reason behind it.
