I want to say a huge thank to the organizers and all the staff at Kidskey School! My daughter Daya started online school at the age of 7.5. She has already mastered Bukvaryata and Russian language 1 courses. She just loves the lessons at Kidskey! Russian 1 course was taught by our ...

We have only positive emotions. Anna could read, but she had a small vocabulary and no desire to speak Russian. And I would like to speak with my daughter in my native language...

We came to Spain from Russia a long time ago. And somehow gradually the language began to be forgotten. My son is 13 years old and he could no longer speak Russian fluently with his relatives.

Yvonne, Alan's mom, France
I'm very happy that I signed Alan up for this course. Many thanks to the teacher Olga who worked with us. I don't know Russian very well myself, and I couldn't help Alan to learn it. Already after a few lessons, I could see the difference which was before and which is now. Alan started to speak Russ...
Catherine, Liam's mother, USA
Great Russian course at a great school! Liam was very shy to speak Russian, afraid to make a mistake, but very much wanted to overcome the language barrier. He refused to practice Russian with me, although I tried to help him, to talk to him, to correct him gently. So, I started looking for more cla...
Ksenia, Eva-Victoria's mother, Czech Republic
The best Russian language school for kids. We are glad we came to Kidskey. I wanted Ava to speak Russian fluently. At the trial lesson we were explained that the best way to do this was to read and communicate in Russian. Ava had a hard time matching words in a sentence, she didn't put accents corre...

Daria, Timur's mom, Canada
We came to Canada when Timur was 3 years old. Now he's eight. And I noticed that he was answering me in Russian less and less often. This made me very sad, so I decided to find him a decent online school with Russian. We came to the trial lesson in Kidskey, where we were told in detail about the tra...
Marguerite, Lilly-Sophie's mother, USA
We live in the U.S., but we periodically visit relatives in Russia. When our eldest daughter Sophie went to school, I noticed that when she communicates with me, she substitutes Russian words for English ones and gets confused. I would like Sophie to have good English and Russian as well. It is espe...

Top FAQs

Does my child need to take a full course to learn reading or can I take some individual classes?

We have a holistic program. Each class is related to others. Consequently, it is necessary to go through a full program to get quality results. By the way all courses are built in blocks of seven to nine classes. You can take one block of classes and, for example, see if this training system suits you and whether you will continue to study. As a rule, all of our students pass all blocks of training.

How long does it take for my child to start reading?

Each child is individual and each one learns the material at his own pace. The first results you will see after 3-4 classes: kids begin to read their first syllables and their first words.

Will your classes suit my child if he knows letters and reads syllables?

Yes, sure. Our programs focus on both correcting reading skills and improving them. After a free trial class, the methodist will determine the level of your child's knowledge and give recommendations on which course is right for your child.

My child does not know or understand Russian at all. Would your courses be suitable for him?

Our school is attended by kids who do not speak or understand Russian. In this case, we recommend parents to attend during some first classes. After a few classes, the child will understand the teacher's instructions and will be able to practice on their own. We also have teachers with knowledge of foreign languages. But it is really good if your child will study with a Russian native speaker. Thanks to this, the child is much faster to understand and speak Russian.

I'm looking for conversational Russian courses; I don't think my kid needs reading. What can you advice?

We recommend paying attention to reading, as it is the basis for language learning and retention. Through reading, the child develops speech, increases vocabulary by relating words to pictures. Repeating the same words during the class helps the child to remember them. And it's easier to reinforce all the new words you've learned through reading, writing and communication.

Is your course suitable for school preparing?

Yes, the methodology is close to school learning, your child does not have to retrain. As a result of the course, the child will learn to differentiate between vowels and consonants, hard and soft sounds; get a basis for sound and letter analysis; learn to read, concentrating on the read word; and be able to read fluently, without letter-by-letter pronunciation.

My child is dyslexic. Will your classes be good for him?

Yes, we also have dyslexic children in our school. The special methodology, fascinating class format and experienced, patient teachers will learn your child to read correctly, quickly and consciously. Your child will love reading with all their heart and will keep up with their peers in learning.
