If you don't get any joy out of anyone on here, have a look on Gumtree - Skills Swap or Classes. Cast your net reasonably wide - some tutors will do it over Skype (need good broadband though) but you still need to be able to meet up with them once in a while.

If you're in/near Cambridge, wait a few weeks and get in touch with the Uni. Probably some student willing to help out.

As for London, google: russian language centre holborn. Pricey but decent.

Why do you want/need to learn? Social or business?

Hi,

Slightly off topic, have recently purchased a Rosetta Stone Russian Level 1,2 & 3 Totale package through a Amazon local deal for £99. I am quite impressed and have been enjoying learning, i disliked learning languages at school.Has anyone else learnt this way or pimsleur or micheal Thomas?

I know this thread is a little old but for reference I bought the same package and TBH I found it quite good for getting into the language BUT Rosetta (in my opinion) should definitely be used alongside a 'proper' course.

It has no instructions or translation, it simply shows you a picture and a word and you 'assume' what the words translates as then through the use of comparative images leads you to their meaning and teaching you think like 'girls eating bread'

but it doesn't seem to teach you anything about the actual grammer, rules or language structure so probably a good place to start and it's good for pronounciation though my lady had issued being accepted with correct pronounciation and she's Russian and a clear speaker so...

Rosetta works on comparing the general shape of the phrase you say versus the expected one.
you could theoretically fool it with inflection on a wrong word but if used correctly it's a useful guide but it's certainly not 'understanding' what you actually say, just comparing audio pictures - albeit cleverly.

Hello everyone!
I am a fully qualified teacher of English. Being native in Russian, and an expert in the English language, I am acutely aware of the differences between English & Russian languages.
I am an enthusiastic and understanding teacher. I strive to motivate my students to reach their goals.
My lessons consist of a series of activities:
- learning a new vocabulary,
- reading practice,

- grammar explanations,
- listening,
- exercises.
I have an experience in teaching Russian to people of all ages and various backgrounds for 3 years.
Prices for online lessons:

Looking forward to hearing from you

Yes, it can be sometimes hard to depend on only the courses available online. I am currently taking courses in EchoEE myself and i am trying different study groups to practice. Practice groups in unilang, lingoholic are very helpful. You can get help from them if you want.
