The purpose of the project

to create high-quality, modern and well-designed lessons of Russian
as a foreign language.

About the project

Youlang is an endless live tutorial that is being created right before your eyes and changes according to your feedback and comments.

Intermediate and advanced level lessons are based on articles from popular online publications. We select such topics which could correspond the students’ interests and would help them to express their own opinion. Lesson materials reflect events and trends that take place in today’s world. And the world, as you may guess, is changing rapidly, and the language is changing with it. Therefore, a “weekly lesson release” format has been chosen presenting the following topics: society, culture, science, education, psychology, travel, Russia and more.

The elementary level lessons are fully developed by our authors and correspond to the main communication situations that the student may face, for instance in areas such as: transport, University, Bank, pharmacy or shop. Lexical and grammatical content of educational materials is strictly tested for compliance with lexical minima and requirements to this level.

Why is YouLang convenient?

By purchasing a subscription, you do not just PDFs for classes, but you get an access to a user-friendly online service, where you can always find the necessary lesson by searching, filtering and sorting by level and topic. Programmers have set up our website from scratch in order to allow you not to waste time on creating the local archive of lessons - all the materials are always close at hand on the site.

On our website there is an option to preview lessons in details, through which you can have a glance on the material and only then buy a corresponding lesson or subscription to the website. In addition, on Youlang.ru you can listen to all the audio materials included in our lessons.

For teachers

We know how much time is usually spent on preparation of our own materials for the lesson. Our project will allow you to reduce this time and focus on inspiration for your own ideas. Our lessons are communicatively oriented and allow to arrange exciting and thought-provoking discussions and role-playing games. To gain such experience during the lesson, our materials include modern vocabulary and grammatical tasks that encourage students to share their opinion using the most appropriate words and expressions.

For language exchange

If you have a language partner and communicate on a daily basis, someday you may eventually notice that you talk about the same topics every time. It can be rather boring and inefficient. Right at this moment, our lessons are to help you. Just before starting the chat, send one of our lessons to your pen-friend and try to discuss the topic during the conversation or even complete the exercises together.

For self-study

If you would like to learn Russian as a foreign language on your own, you can download lessons of different levels from A1 to C2. Each lesson has an exciting text, video or audio materials, tasks and answer keys. You can always test yourself! Use all the lessons on different topics to learn new Russian vocabulary, to read, write and speak Russian. You are getting better with every lesson.

Team

Youlang is, first of all, a team of professionals who are passionate about the common cause. Our authors are certified philologists with the RFL specialization. They are also experienced in universities and language schools. Therefore, their lessons are always full of new ideas, but at the same time meet the RFL teaching state standarts. The authors are assisted by an editor, Illustrator and voice specialist. The designer develops the appearance of all our materials, finding unique solutions for each lesson. This will help you to distinguish yourself from other teachers and attract new students!

"I really enjoy what you do here. The whole idea behind the language study "why we speak" and not the "how we speak" is really convenient and students like it. A good variety of topics allows for making interesting debates within exercises where role-play is involved.
