THE POPCORN-READY COURSE
TO LEARN RUSSIAN
If you’re tired of books and learning difficult grammar and vocabulary, take a break and watch one of the most emblematic movies of 1990s Russia – Брат. And of course, improve your Russian at the same time!
Watching movies in Russian is an awesome way to improve your Russian—especially your speaking and listening skills. Why not make learning a new language fun and get a similar experience to immersing yourself with native speakers, from the comfort of your home?
Get the popcorn🍿 ready and start studying!
HOW DOES LEARNING RUSSIAN
WITH MOVIES WORK?
The movie is broken down into short clips of about five minutes each to help you focus on one piece of content at a time. You´ll watch each clip three times following these steps:
WATCH WITH RUSSIAN SUBTITLES
This way, you’ll be reading and listening at the same time, which is a fantastic way to learn because you’ll be taking in the language simultaneously with two senses.
You won’t feel under too much pressure because even if you miss what’s been said, you can still see it written in the subtitles. You’ll also remember new expressions better since you’ve already seen them in their written form as well.
LEARN FROM THE CLIP
After watching the clip the first time with Russian subtitles (Step 1), you´ll watch it again, but this time after every couple phrases, you´ll see a slide with literal and actual English translations and hear me read each phrase twice in slow Russian.
We´ll go through every single phrase like this to make sure you understand everything and can clearly hear how each word is pronounced.
WATCH WITHOUT SUBTITLES
After going through Steps 1 & 2, you´ll watch the clip again without subtitles. By then, you´ll be able to understand most of what is said in the movie without having to rely on subtitles. Yay!
HERE´S WHAT ELSE YOU GET
DUAL RU / ENG
If you´re a big fan of dual subtitles, you´ll have an option to watch each clip with simultaneous RU/ENG subtitles that will help you instantly check if you’re actually understanding Russian or just getting the gist.
The PDF document that comes with the video lessons is a real work of art! You´ll find a Russian transcript with accent marks for every single word, English literal AND correct translations, and a list of colloquial phrases from the movie worth learning by heart.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

One movie – Брат.
There will be more movies added in the future but they will be treated as separate courses and sold separately.
I want to improve my speaking. Is the course going to help me speak Russian better?
Although Russian With Movies is focused on developing your listening skills and growing your Russian vocabulary, I am confident that it will have a great, positive effect on the other three communication skills – reading, writing, and especially speaking.
By improving your listening, you will automatically improve your speaking, as they are much more interconnected than we think when we are having a natural language-learning experience – which is exactly what this course is focused on providing.
How long will I have access to the lessons?
Forever! You not only get lifetime access to all course materials but also all future updates for free.

Yes. The original movie is broken down into short clips of about five minutes each to help you focus on one piece of content at a time. You´ll have the option to watch the same clip in four different versions: with Russian subtitles, with dual Russian/English subtitles, without subtitles or with Russian subtitles and my voiceover in slow Russian.
