Learning Russian is not a contest or a race. It’s not about how many words you know or which grammar rules you can recite. Learning how to speak Russian is all about understanding what you hear, and making yourself understood when you speak. At OptiLingo, we use a Guided Immersion approach. We focus on common phrases and high-frequency words placed in the context of native speakers in everyday activities, so you hear how Russian is spoken in the real world and learn to speak naturally. With OptiLingo, you’ll learn more content, more quickly, at an affordable price.

“I heard about OptiLingo, and their 30 day money back guarantee, so I gave them a shot. It's only been a few weeks, but I feel pretty comfortable with some pretty helpful phrases.”
“My whole life, I thought I was bad at learing another language. With OptiLingo, everything just worked. It all just clicked, and it didn't feel like I was struggling.”
I didn’t set out to start OptiLingo. I set out to learn my ethnic language. In the process of refining my study notes, I stumbled upon a process, a method, a secret formula. I designed my system to be as simple and fast and effective as possible.
There are lots of programs that promise to teach you a language; my driving passion was to preserve my ethnic identity. My language is on a path to extinction. If and when that day comes, my ethnic identity will disappear.
That’s what drove me to develop the best system to learn a new language.
