Since studying beginner Russian with Michael it has given me a bit more of an understanding into learning Russian. I had already learnt a small amount of Russian before our lessons but I had many unanswered questions so it has been excellent to start from the very beginning in a well structured manner so that I could cover the bases. Michael was very patient with my sometimes bizarre questions and was very helpful. I look forward to carrying the lessons on when I return back to Krasnoyarsk.
