Russian Language: the Very First Lesson

There are many methods to teach languages. Every teacher develops his/ her own system with time. This system has to be changed with every new student because every person has own capacities and ways to learn new information. I describe here my way to begin the new course of Russian language with a person that does not know anything of Russian language.

exercises to do

Здравствуйте! Здравствуй!
Я - Людмила. Меня зовут Людмила.
Как вас зовут? Как тебя зовут?
Очень приятно!

I prepare much more phrases on the leaf for two reasons: sometimes persons can learn more sometimes less. So, if my student can learn more in the firsst lesson, I have more phrases to work with. If he/ she can't learn much, I have a limit of these phrases I absolutely have to work with the first day.

alphabet tables (one with transcription, one - to hang on the wall) There are many pictures in the web and everywhere.


I begin with the first phrases. I explain the modes of use of -те and the ethymology of the word здравствуйте. It's to lower the tension and to create some interest. The ethymological informations are always useful for these aims. Very important is the capacity of the teacher to create a kind of show and make the student partecipate in it.

I write the second phrase on the wall and read every letter.
Than I pass to the alphabet that hangs on the wall near me.
I work with the alphabet.
Than I pass to the third and last phrase.

Very important is to arrive to the last phrase of the lesson to give the sense of completeness of the first part of the study.


I do not expect that the person trying for the first time to learn some russian words have great progresses. I do not expect it at all. The only result has to be the interest of the student and his/ her conviction he/ she CAN do it.

Autumn and Winter Tasks for a Translator from Russian to Italian

Autumn and winter come with their lack of sunshine. And many persons prefer to pass all the time in the room in front of pc. They would like to open their eyes in the morning and to find a new task that can be done in two-three hours.

Internet is very useful place for translator from Italian to Russian and from Russian to Italian. It gives different advantages to those who earns money writing:

First of all, you do not need to walk days and days from one assumed jobgiver to other. Once, when I began my way, you would generally walk and walk without any result and only good acquaintances of your parents or their friends could open a door in front of you. I do not say, this door took you in a good place, but you had a job and fixed earnings at the end of the month.

Now, everything changed in the world. If you have a stable presence in the internet, you are known to different circles of persons and they know how to find you if they need you.

Some young competitors write me or phone me from time to time and they are very angry with me because I appear everywhere in internet and they no.

I do not know, gays, why do you come to ME with this??? You, who studied computer and internet, different languages and strategies. I'm much more older than you are. I did not study anything from that. Can't you subscribe special newsletters you need for the aims you have? Can't you take a notebook and write in it what you think is useful for you? Can't you follow the teachings you studied this way and create your presence in internet?

Open a blog, pages in social media. Study SEO writing. Study keywords. Write articles regularly and submit them everywhere you can.

All your success depends on your articles. You do not need any dime to reach your success. If you are fortunate with the keywords and interesting articles, you will be easily reachable by the persons that are looking for service you can offer them.

And, if the service you offer is good enough, your clients will pass your contacts to others who look for such service.

This is all the secret.
