Hello and welcome! My name is Natasha, and I am originally from Belarus. When I came to America, I met many people who wanted to learn about Russia, and I was glad to share my knowledge with them. As I traveled, I began to look for more convenient ways to communicate with my students. In 2005, I started a website SpeakRussianNow.com offering a wide range of language services online. Whatever your language needs may be, we are here to work with you!
