Online Russian Language Course
Time4Languages makes it simple for Time4Learning K-12 students to learn Russian or improve their Russian fluency.
The online Russian language course features an award-winning, proven method in which students will learn to speak and think in Russian. There is no memorization or translation involved. An immersive environment teaches students by connecting words and phrases with images.
As the largest nation in the world that spans 11 time zones, it’s no wonder that Russian is the largest native language in Europe with approximately 144 million native speakers. In addition to Russia, Russian is spoken in Romania, Poland, Slovakia, Norway, and Finland. Many words in the English language contain words borrowed from the Russian language. A few examples include cosmonaut, beluga, blintz, and babushka.
How does Russian Language Learning work?
The Time4Languages online Russian course features award-winning language learning homeschool content powered by Rosetta Stone® and is made up of 5 levels, each consisting of 4 units.
Every unit includes 4 Core Lessons. Core Lessons will teach your student the Russian language. For students who have some understanding of the Russian language, they can use the Core Lesson within each unit as a method of gauging where they should begin.
Focused Activities within the Time4Languages online Russian course focus on speaking, reading, writing, pronunciation, vocabulary, grammar and listening.
Every activity within the course is graded and each unit ends with a conversational Milestone that will help students gain confidence by reviewing what they’ve learned through a simulated conversation in Russian.
Parents have access to automated reporting that allows them to measure progress from the online program rather than having to learn the language and grade their child’s work.
Time4Languages is a self-teaching program that allows K-12 students to learn at their own pace through engaging lessons. Students will start with the fundamentals and learn basic conversation skills like greetings, introductions as well as simple questions and answers.
Student-paced, Interactive, and Fun Russian Language Learning!
The engaging Russian language course is both fun and effective. Students are able to interact with the course by speaking into a microphone (either built-in on the computer or purchased separately) to ensure that their pronunciation is correct.
For more detailed practice, students can access the Speech Analysis screen. This tool allows students to improve their pronunciation by recording and playing back their own voice in order to compare it with a native Russian speaker.
The Time4Languages online Russian course allows students to pause a lesson, repeat activities as often as needed, as well as skip lessons. Although it is recommended that students follow the suggested sequence since the material is created to build upon itself, Russian language learners have the option to work in a different order.
For maximum benefits, it is recommended that students log into their Russian language course 3-5 times per week, for 20-30 minutes each day.
