Online learning or distance learning emerged at the end of the 20th century. In 1993 with the release of the first Internet browser, distance learning began to spread. Several American Universities launched online study programs in 1998. With the development of Internet technologies, online learning has been actively growing. As a result, by 2013, 30% of students were enrolled in a certain distance learning course.
Now online learning has reached its record high in the entire history of its existence. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a huge number of schoolchildren and students have switched to distance learning. Moreover, corporate training in many companies and corporations has also moved online. So online learning is becoming a familiar part of our life.
You can learn Russian online on your own, individually with a teacher or in a group. In fact, each of these methods is effective by itself, but their combination can be the most beneficial.
Individual or group Russian online classes will help define the program and structure the learning process. Also, communication with other students in a group boosts progress.
Online Self-study differs from the offline format and is more effective since it includes not only reading materials and completing assignments but also communicating with real people and speaking practice. Meanwhile, there are a large number of groups, chats, and forums dedicated to the Russian language study which can help in learning Russian online. In addition, one of them is the Ruslanguage Facebook group.
Online education is as popular in Russia now as it is around the world. Even the older generation of teachers started and continues to master the tools of online communication.
As a matter of fact, Russia ranked 47th among the world’s countries by the fixed broadband Internet access speed, with an average download speed of 75.91 MBit/s (Wiki). So usually the Internet connection is good in the big cities.
