If you have no prior exposure to other Slavic languages, you’ll find Russian quite challenging to learn. This is mainly due to complex grammar rules, pronunciation, and unfamiliar alphabet. But if you already know some Bulgarian or Czech? Russian will be a walk in the park for you! If you would like help with writing documents or business presentations in Russian, you can hire a translator via our platform.
Common Russian words and phrases include Привет (hello), Да (yes), Спасибо (thank you), and До свидания (goodbye). When you book a Russian tutor via Airtasker, they’ll cover these words and phrases and help you learn ones that align with your motivations to learn the language (whether for business or travel).

This depends on the student’s native language. English speakers will find German easier to learn, while Slavic language speakers will have an easier time taking up Russian. Of course, both languages are interesting to learn - but you’d have to consider what language will be more beneficial for you. Are you planning to take a vacation in Russia or expand your business to cater to native Russian speakers? Then it’s time to request a Russian language tutor near you!
Yes, you definitely can! To start, request online Russian tutoring via Airtasker. Our platform gets you offers from language teachers who have the necessary tools and expertise to conduct online lessons. Of course, you should also make sure that your computer, webcam, microphone, and Internet connection are ready for these sessions. You can use our platform to hire a technical support specialist who’ll help you get ready for your virtual classes.
This depends on the Russian tutor you hire. Some may offer Russian lessons for beginners and even children. It’s a good idea to indicate your level of expertise in your task post. This way, you can limit the potential offers to those Taskers who have worked with beginner Russian students. The reviews section should also help you assess which Tasker best fits your needs.

What do Russian lessons include?
The coverage of Russian lessons may vary depending on the student’s proficiency level and the tutor’s pedagogy. These can also be influenced by the student’s motivations to learn. In general, these are what you can expect when you book a Russian tutor through Airtasker:
Introduction to Russian
This typically includes an introduction to the Cyrillic alphabet and the basics of the language. Your tutor may teach you how to introduce yourself in Russian, standard Russian greetings, ask questions, count and tell time, talk about directions or positions, and the words for places, things, and occupations.
This part usually covers the gender of nouns, pronouns in various cases, and verb conjugations. You’ll also learn about hard, soft, voiced, and voiceless consonants, as well as vowels and their reduction.
As you grow your proficiency, you’re introduced to more words. Your tutor may show you how to write and say verbs, adjectives, adverbs, various activities, phrases you may use while travelling, and even Russian customs.
When it comes to verbs, adjectives, and adverbs, you may be surprised by the conjugation rules. There are different cases and structures in Russian. There are also irregular verbs like вставать, давать, and продавать.
Conversing in Russian
Later on, your tutor may cover topics like how to describe people, talking about work and activities, the rules of intonation and reading, adjectives and adverbs, and the more complex pronouns. They’ll also tackle adjectives and pronouns in various cases, different kinds of verbs, structures, and conjunctions.
If you’re working on a deadline (such as an upcoming vacation or business trip), you may want to ask your tutor to tailor the vocabulary lessons to words and phrases that will be useful to you.
This is where it gets very tricky. Russian has a lot of rules and exceptions. Depending on how deep you’d like to get into the language, you may learn about the genitive case, dative case, and comparative & superlative structures. There’s also the matter of imperfective and perfective verbs of motion. Namely: prefixes, negative structures, participles, and the Russian gerund.
Recitations and practice tests
As with any language, mastery comes in the form of writing, reading, and speaking, as well as understanding what you hear. Your Tasker may encourage you to look for videos, articles, or even apps that use Russian.
You may also want a regular pen pal or video chat friend with whom you can practise Russian. At the end of your lesson, your tutor may give you a chance to demonstrate by conducting a pop quiz or a quick written test.
