Why Study

Studying Russian Using Computers

What is more, in the past 5 years a number of extremely effective and entertaining computer- assisted tools for learning Russian have been developed. Their continual refinement promises to make learning Russian easier than it has ever been. Political changes in Russia have made it possible to spend more time there and at an earlier stage in the language learning process than was possible even a decade ago. One can now receive exposure to the living language very early in the learning process, allowing Russian to be taught more like French, Spanish, and German than like Latin or Greek. As a result, more Americans who begin the language are able to achieve a high level of fluency faster than before.
