We recently did a T-shirt give-away for members who were traveling to Russia.
Many of them were kind enough to send in pictures of themselves along with comments about the Russian Accelerator Online course. Thanks again to every body who participated!

“Increasing my vocabulary every day. It’s amazing! This coming from a teacher as well. Thank you so much for this course!”

“I am very impressed with the first 4 Units I have done. I find myself replying to waitresses in Russian without realizing it. It has been very enjoyable to this point and I look forward to future sessions. Mark, I just wanted to send you a huge thank you for the “secret phrases”! I selected a few and learned them pretty well and spoke them into the ear to my brand new fiance’. Where did you get these things? Just these are worth the price of the course! WOW!”

Jean Coulter – (Visited: Orphange in Kyrgyzstan)
“The Russian I had learned was enough to get me around and keep us fed and watered.
Thanks again for a very user friendly course.”
Dr. Robert White – (Taken in St. Petersburg, Russia)
“I am having an immense amount of fun. I haven’t felt so energised about something new in a long time. This is an excellent program! Cear and helpful. “
John Keneally – (Taken in Vinitsa, Ukraine)
“I find the course well designed, and the practical examples of how the different cases are used, instead of some confusing grammatical explanation, are very helpful. When I visit Ukraine, I can get by in shops etc. after reaching unit 12, which is great . Actually for me it’s a miracle! I was always poor at languages at school. If they had been taught in Russian Accelerator way, well who knows…? I might be fluent in Latin by now 🙂 “

“You are a great man Mark, and its an honor to be your student. You are the best teacher ever! The course is great! I believe now I will be able to talk to my Ukrainian girlfriend in Russian. How awesome!
Dear Mark I wish to remain your student for all time this is the best course I have ever done. This is the ultimate Russian learning course, and you are the best teacher I have ever encountered. You’re awesome! I’m learning more than I ever thought possible. “

“Я занимаюсь русским каждый день!
(“I study Russian every day!)
Мы ездили в Санкт-Петербург на выходные. Это было классно!
(We took a trip to St. Petersburg this weekend. It was awesome!)
Мы видели много музеев. Эрмитаж, Екатерининский дворец и Петергоф дворец.
(We saw lots of museums. The Hermitage, the Catherine Palace, and the Perterhof Palace.)
Екатерининский дворец был мой любимый. Он очень красивый.
(The Catherine Palace was my favorite. It’s very pretty.)
Я посылаю тебе фотогафии от Санкт-Петербурга в моей любимой футболоке!!!!”
(I’m sending you photos from St. Ptersburg in my favorite T-shirt!!!!”)
Wes Jackson – (Taken in Nikolaev)
“Have had a great time here and what I learned from Russian Accelerator was beyond useful. I was here last year, and spoke no Russian. This year, what a difference! Whether ordering food, asking directions or buying souvenirs, people were much warmer and open towards me. In a small way, I feel like a part of the culture now, rather than just a total outsider looking in. My lady friend and I are doing well, so it looks like I will be returning, so…the study continues.
I am learning a great deal, and I really enjoy the teaching method. It is very effective. I usually do my lesson when I get home from work and I find that I look forward to it. Many people have many different skills, but I have found, in my life, that very few people actually know how to train others well. You are one of those few.”

James Daloisio – (Taken in Kiev)
“After spending a number of months with your course and proceeding at a snail’s pace I was still able to communicate sufficiently to make my way around by myself. And many things are in english, and the hotels have English speaking staff. That’s it. Thanks for the shirt!!!
I am happy to be able to walk into a coffee shop and say ya xochu kofe pazhualista…. and then, spasiba. Last time I was there I actually ate at a restaurant called Peevo i vada. And I knew what it meant!!! ”
After struggling to learn Russian, Mark took a step back and turned his attention to the study of language acquisition. He discovered that the key to fluency and quickly learning Russian was to combine a variety of powerful yet often overlooked language learning techniques. As a master teacher who understands exactly what the difficulties will be for beginning students, Mark has created the ultimate Russian language learning program.
