In the framework of her efforts for social and business integration, Natalia offers series of language courses: Russian as a foreign language and Greek and English for Russian-speakers.


MISSION POSSIBLE is a course of Russian language that is addressed to busy people who want to learn Russian but do not have time for regular lessons. They can watch the course in their free time, follow it with their speed. The course has two levels. It is pre-recorded and published on an educational website, created by Natalia for her students.

In addition to this course, on this website you'll find a lot of video and text materials useful while studying Russian language.

Follow this link to nine video courses - you may watch first lessons free of charge and subscribe to the course that suits you.

Expected results for those who follow the Video Courses

The results for Beginners: on completion of the course you will speak and read basic Russian, you'll know approximately 300 keywords, recognise in speech about 500-600 words and be able to construct hundreds of sentences using this vocabulary.

The results for the Advanced level: the course will increase your active vocabulary (the words you use in speech) to 500 words and your passive vocabulary (the words you recognise in speech) up to 700 words. You'll repeat all the main grammar rules, and learn by heart useful phrases and sentences.

Group and Private Lessons

Natalia Kardash teaches only adults. She takes one-two groups a year to teach online. She does not offer private lessons, but if you contact her, she can recommend a teacher. Please send an email to nk@vkcyprus.com or a whatsapp/viber/telegram message to +(357) 99 587156, write your phone number, name. Please also indicate whether you'd like to join a group for beginners, group for advanced students, or you are looking for a private teacher.

Busy people think that learning a new language requires years of hard work. That is why many do not even start, being sure that they will give up soon because they know the main value is their time, and they do not have much time for any long-term commitment. My courses are created to help these people.

Many businesses in Cyprus have Russian-speaking clients. Executives need to take these clients out for lunches and dinners, to network not only with business people but with their families and friends. Basic knowledge of Russian would facilitate these duties, and good knowledge of Russian would help to get new clients and friends.

Please start with my video courses. If you like them but you look for conversational practice, you can join one of my groups. I'll make sure that you'll start speaking within a month we'll work together. I do not have much time for teaching, that is why I take only a couple of groups per year. Contact me if you want to register for the nearest course that will be taught in June 2023.

Feedback, comments and recommendations from students from Beginners' and Advanced groups

I absolutely loved this course and I'm glad I made this decision; it is probably the best I have made. I have been wanting to learn Russian for quite some time now but never made the first step thinking it was intimidating. This course has not only taught me how to speak and write in Russian but also to sing and think.

It is amazing how Natalia indeed managed to keep everyone interested and alert, looking forward to the next lesson. I found this course to be very helpful down to every detail, Natalia is very methodical and has put together an incredible series of material. The course is interactive using graphic material making it fun to study and learn.

The results are amazing. What has been achieved in 30 days is formidable! Natalia has a wonderful teaching system that really works. I have been communicating with my clients and colleagues in Russian and the impact was significant.

Everyone appreciated my new skills and they could not believe that I have been learning Russian only for a month. It seems that with these lessons a new universe of opportunities opened both in my business and personal life. I would definitely recommend this course to others. Natalia is very professional and enthusiastic, her method of teaching makes learning Russian relatively easier.

I found important Natalia's warmth, positive approach and general enthusiasm. Russian is very scary so creating a feel good/comfortable atmosphere is very helpful to learning.

This course is an excellent gateway to Russian led by a warm and enthusiastic teacher. We not only learned loads of great vocabulary and useful phrases but also got an insight into Russian culture and geography.

Thoroughly recommended.

Tim Drohan


This course is different from others. I will recommend it from all my heart!

It has nice presentations, with many and diverse information not just about grammar and language, but about the culture, history, geography, mentality.

And the fact that one of the main activities is constant repetition, gave us confidence and made the lessons seem much easier.

Natalia Kardash courses teaching Russian to beginners are the best value one could find! The online course was excellent. My Russian-speaking family members were quite surprised at the progress I made in 30 days.

Natalia Kardash herself as a teacher, her methodology and her personalized approach is the difference between this course and others. She is with her student every day, bright, smiling, cheery and full of enthusiasm. Perhaps the most important element is her positive attitude, always pushing forward, accepting students' mistakes without showing any frustration. Always encouraging, never criticising, helping her students get over their difficulties.

Leonard Delunas


Joining the advanced group was a great opportunity for me to refresh my Russian vocabulary and grammar and be able to adapt in real life conversations that will be useful in the future for my development.

It goes without saying that I will recommend to other students. The personal approach and the attention to the personal needs of each student makes all the difference.

The course is tailored made to the exact needs and specifications of each group and what they want to achieve in the long run.

Christophoros Teggeris


Most important was the timing of the course and its compact duration. One month's time – I found it very attractive.

I would definitely recommend the course to my friends. It was well structured, well presented, compact and productive.

Best investment I could have made with my time during one month!

Vrej Bekarian


The course was very interesting and helpful. I recommend it to other people who are interested to learn Russian. The most important for me in this course was the fact that I could study from the comfort of my house and at the time I choose.

I value and appreciate Natalia's patience to help me with any difficulties I had. I am convinced that basic knowledge of Russian is helping much in business, I am Hyatt hotel manager, we have many Russian guests. Within a month I could learn enough words to start "small talks" without clients.

Yiannakis Ioannou


The course was well planned, learning materials are easy to access with the basic objectives of training, particularly audio that can be downloaded and listened to offline.

Natalia is a fabulous teacher, I am looking forward to taking more online classes. Our teacher loves interacting with us, she is teaching with passion, excellent preparation, flexibility, organizations skills, intensive work.

I liked learning about geography and history that I have never found in other courses.
