Our Story

The Art of Russian is a boutique Russian language school based on a comfortable and effective teaching methodology. We build small language groups and help you go through each level with the same group.

Support System

We offer group lessons where students not only learn the language but build friendships and help each other in the language journey. We distribute homework in the form of Anki flashcards. We also offer FB chat for all of our students


We dedicate 60% of each lesson to speaking practice. We use games and various exercises to achieve this target.


We begin with basic phrases and expressions and move progressively through the grammar curriculum.

Anna Chebotareva

Language Teacher

"I have always liked foreign languages, but the most unusual experience for me was teaching my native language as foreign. I really like to reveal the subtleties of the Russian language; I like looking for answers to interesting questions together with my students. In addition, I like the opportunity to communicate with people from different countries and cultures."

Anna was born and raised in Voronezh in Central Russia. She started her teaching career teaching English to children 1.5 - 5 years old using the "immersion" method. In 2019 she moved to the Far East in the city of Khabarovsk. In 2020 she graduated from the Faculty of Romance and Germanic Philology and started teaching Russian as a foreign language online. At the university, Anna studied linguistics, French, and English.
