If you are interested in politics, history, economics, geopolitics, and current news,
Especially if you want to know more about Russia and understand its context,
And if you are learning Russian at a B1 level or higher,
And if you want to learn Russian naturally through immersion,
And if you want to be able to discuss complex topics in Russian,
Then you are in the right place!

My name is Yaroslava, and I am a Russian language teacher (as well as a literature teacher).
You may have found me through YouTube,
and I am happy to tell you more about my project,
Learn Russian with News.
In “Learn Russian with News”, we read news to improve your Russian language skills and expand your understanding of Russia from an insider's perspective.
We focus on:
  • Current events that impact Russia.
  • Key events in Russia, the USSR, and even the Russian Empire that continue to influence modern Russia today and shape the country as we know it.
On my YouTube channel you will find:
  • A new in-depth episode about Russian reality (every week or so).
  • A free PDF with vocabulary and examples.
  • A free PDF with an exercise to help you recall all the vocabulary.
