You are not going to learn to speak Russian in 2 weeks. If you are going stay longer than a week we would recommend that you take advantage of this service. We would like to offer you a 6 hour introduction (more if you really like) to the Russian alphabet and language. Just being able to sound out the Russian letters will greatly enhance your experience. Many words in the Russian language come from English, German, or other European languages. You will be able to recognize "ресторан" as restaurant and "метро" as the "metro" or subway. You will be able to say "hello" and "thank you". You will be able to recognize danger and keep away signs - little things that will make your stay so much more pleasurable and safe.
In depth and crash courses in Russian language are available at $US20/hr.
