If you like to watch, on YouTube you can find a huge amount of educational videos and video podcasts on learning Russian.

Moreover, for those who could not access or afford Russian language education before, mobile apps such as DuoLingo or Pimsleur have become a perfect solution. According to the founder of a free language learning app DuoLingo, Luis von Ahn, “there are more people actively learning a language through DuoLingo than in the entire US public school system.”

2. Get a Russian Skype tutor

Although self-learning online does help the learning process, many students admit that it requires a lot of time, effort, and self-discipline, which many people simply do not have, and are still not enough to really learn the language as one would with a tutor.

According to the students, Skype lessons with a native Russia tutor is one of the most efficient ways of learning, because it is personal, affordable, and fun.
