“Groeten uit Rusland! Ik ben met de trein op weg van Amsterdam naar Shanghai, met stops in Berlijn, Moskou, Jekaterinburg, Irkutsk, Ulan Batar, Beijing en Shanghai. Nu in Irkutsk, een hele mooie stad met prachtige oude houten huizen. Het Baikal meer is fabelachtig mooi en de mensen zijn heel aardig. Het beetje Russische taal dat ik leerde, komt mij heel goed van pas, ik red me vrij aardig en merk dat de mensen het op prijs stellen als je probeert Russisch te praten. Nog veel dank voor de lessen! “

“Zhanna obviously puts a lot of time and effort into preparing her lessons, tailoring them to her pupils’ needs. Her lessons are taught with enthusiasm and humor and much background information.

A very good teacher.”

“The Russian lessons I took with Zhanna were very inspiring and motivating to pick up the first basics of the Russian language and to grasp a better understanding of Russia and her people. Lessons were focused on practical application of Russian and anticipating on expected interactions. Zhanna has a supportive attitude and coaches in a positive that inspires to start speaking Russian! Yвидимся, надеюсь!”



“Het was echt plezier met jouw Russisch leren.  Ik hield mijn Woensdag ochtends.” WS


 “Ik heb altijd veel plezier gehad in de lessen en veel geleerd” Eric.


“Zhanna. You’re an excellent teacher!” Iva



Zhanna is a great teacher. She makes learning a new language fun by using varied and original material. Besides, I liked that our lessons focused on applying our Russian knowledge by mostly speaking, listening, and reading.
