„I have also learnt not to be afraid of speaking.”
Anna's course of Russian has taught me more than Russian language itself. I have brushed up basics from school and I have also learnt not to be afraid of speaking. Homeworks have broadened my horizons in various areas, I have acquired new information about culture, banking and day-to-day life in Russia - naturally in Russian.

„I have learned new information about Russian life and culture.”
I started to take Anna's course because of my colleague's recommendation, since I work in a Russian bank and the communication with Russian speaking clients has become more and more frequent. The lessons were in the form of conversation and homeworks required us to prepare papers on various topics. Thanks to Anna I have quickly "renewed" basics from school and learnt new information about day to day life and customs in Russia. I highly recommend lessons with Anna.
„One of the few courses in the first term of Russian studies that actually makes sense.”
The course has definitely helped me with pronounciation and miss Sidelnikova was a very good tutor. In my opinion she clearly has the ability to teach - explain the topic, get interest, correctly plan the lesson, assign homework, pick what is important and not waste time with details and complex topics - which unfortunately many college tutors lack. The tutor is adequatly strict and helpful and able to listen to student's requirements, as well as able to maintain a certain insight. From my point of view her lectures were very beneficial and I consider them to be among the most meaningful and pleasant during my studies.
„I have relatively quickly "refreshed" my Russian.”
I have started using Russian at work where more and more Russian clients started to seek our services. I needed to brush up my school knowledge. Lessons were very helpful and professionally led. On top of that there was a friendly atmosphere. Besides grammar, we have also learnt a lot about Russian culture and many interesting facts about Russian day-to-day life. I have relatively quickly "refreshed" my Russian thanks to "homeworks" and exercises. I definitely benefit from the course which was led in an understandable and entertaining way. I can only recommend.
„Thanks to homeworks we were practicing even at home!”
Russian lessons with Anna have a friendly atmosphere and each lesson incorporates grammar, exercises and discussion. Thanks to homeworks we were practicing even at home! Besides significant improvements to my Russian, lessons with Anna have also broadened my horizons because I have learnt lots of interesting things about traditions, culture and people living in Russia.
„Learning through games.”
Since I work in a bank owned by Russians and there is an increase in the amount of Russian clients, I have decided to brush up my knowledge of my Russian and enrich my banking vocabulary. A coleague has introduced me to Anna and it was therefore simple for me to contact her. A huge advantage was that Anna has been willing to come to our facility and adapt to our work schedule. Our group accomodated 5-6 people which was ideal for the lessons. I really liked the opportunity for mutual verbal communication between the students and learning through games. The course lasted approximately 2 years and today I have no issues communicating with Russian clients in writing.
„Despite being a Russian native speaker, she also speaks Czech perfectly.”
The cooperation with lecturer Anna Sidelnikova was very good, she took her job in a responsible way and tried hard to teach us the language. Despite being a Russian native speaker, she speaks Czech perfectly, which simplified explanation and therefore we would like to thank her for her awesome and patient attitude. We know that it was not easy with us because we have only had a limited amount of time for the course. We would also like to thank her for her willingness to reschedule lessons. Our schedule was very variable.
„Every lesson was original and "tailored”
I have taken Anna's lessons of buisiness Russian for 1 year at B2-C1 level. Every lesson was original and "tailored". In case we came across an ambiguous thing, during the next lesson Anna explained and practiced the related grammar with us. Anna leads lessons professionally, the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. I highly recommend.
„I very much liked the way how Anna managed to explain a lot of things about local culture to us.”
I’ve been staying in Brno for 2 weeks. As part of our program, we’ve visited different non-profit institutions and organizations and taken part in various trainings. Anna Sidelnikova has accompanied us as an interpreter throughout our whole stay and she’s done a great job. All the day long she managed to interpret and answer the questions that our group had during meetings. Besides our scheduled meetings that lasted for the whole day, she also interpreted during lunches and dinners. I very much liked the way how Anna managed to explain a lot of things about local culture to us. She is very attentive and diligent, and she always gave us helpful advice.
