Canada-Russia Research Initiative launches the Russian training resource for those who want or need to build or review their language skills or to cover everyday-related topics in greater detail. We strongly support the idea of the necessity of constant interactions with native speakers in order to improve learners’ knowledge of the language and their comprehension of the Russian culture. We offer language practice with Russian tutors both in person and online. And we provide cross-cultural communication orientation for students, researchers, representatives of the Canadian business community and other individuals planning to live in Russia for some time. We also develop courses in various fields of Russian studies to accommodate university needs.
