Russian Accelerator Members Speak Russian: Will You Be Next?

When we did a T-shirt give-away for members who were traveling to Russia, many of them were kind enough to send in pictures of themselves along with comments about the Russian Accelerator course. Thanks again to every body who participated!

Bill Coon - (Taken in Kiev in January!)

“Increasing my vocabulary every day. It’s amazing! This coming from a teacher as well. Thank you so much for this course.”

“I am very impressed with the first 4 Units I have done. I find myself replying to waitresses in Russian without realizing it. It has been very enjoyable to this point and I look forward to future sessions. Mark, I just wanted to send you a huge thank you for the “secret phrases”! I selected a few and learned them pretty well and spoke them into the ear to my brand new fiance’. Where did you get these things? Just these are worth the price of the course! WOW!”

John Keneally - (Taken in Vinista, Ukraine)

“I find the course well designed, and the practical examples of how the different cases are used, instead of some confusing grammatical explanation, are very helpful. When I visit Ukraine, I can get by in shops etc. after reaching Unit 12, which is great. Actually for me it’s a miracle!. I was always poor at languages at school. If they had been taught in the Russian Accelerator way, who knows... ”

“The course is great! I believe now I will be able to talk to my Ukrainian girlfriend in Russian. How awesome! Mark, I wish to remain your student for all time as this is the best course I’ve ever done. This is the ultimate Russian learning course, and you are the best teacher I’ve ever encountered. You’re awesome! I’m learning more than I ever thought possible.”

Wes Jackson - (Taken Nikolaev)

“Have had a great time here and what I learned from Russian Accelerator was beyond useful. I was here last year, and spoke no Russian. This year, what a difference! Whether ordering food, asking directions or buying souvenirs, people were much warmer and open towards me. In a small way, I feel like a part of the culture now, rather than just a total outsider looking in. I am learning a great deal, and I really enjoy the teaching method. It is very effective. ”

James Daloisio - (Taken Kiev)

“After spending a number of months with your course... I was able to communicate sufficiently to make my way around by myself.

I am happy to be able to walk into a coffee shop and say ya xochu kofe pazhualista. and then, Spasiba. Last time I was there I actually ate at a restaurant called Peevo i vada. And I knew what it meant!!!”

“After struggling to learn Russian, Mark took a step back and turned his attention to the study of language acquisition. He discovered that the key to fluency and quickly learning Russian was to combine a variety of powerful yet often overlooked language learning techniques. As a master teacher who understands exactly what the difficulties will be for beginning students, Mark has created the ultimate Russian laguage learning program.”

“Thank You”

The nice thing with the Russian Accelerator Method is that we can progress at our own speed with no outside stress.
