Juliya paces her lessons well and is very attentive and receptive about if/when any confusion or questions arise. She is such a magnificent teacher, in fact, that in less than ten Russian lessons I've already learned the following:
The Russian alphabet, to count up to the thousands, read/write basic Russian, and to carry basic conversation - which is very impressive considering that I had little to know knowledge of the Russian language prior to our lessons!

She's a really well-organized teacher who also loves Russian literature, and she recommended the Living Language Russian set to me, which is going to be very helpful. She also recommended The Master and the Margarita, which I'm very excited to read. She teaches from the Living Language series, and it was very motivating to hear about her other students' success with the Russian language.
That is why I love having Victoria as my teacher because she teaches me how to speak Russian correctly with the bonus of teaching about the Russian way of life. You basically get the "whole package". So, Victoria, thank you very much! I am very happy that you are my teacher. Thanks to you, I have learned so much about the Russian language and culture (and I hope to learn even more). I really want to travel to Russia and I promise you that I will travel around the country in the future.
