If you want to travel to Russia and enjoy the fullest your trip, you must learn Russian immediately; and if we assume that youíre saving money for your trip, you canít afford expensive language courses; then a course online will help you achieve a basic knowledge without having to pay much for it.
- Learning Russian makes you special; have you noticed that most people are interested in learning Spanish, English, French, German or even Chinese? Well if you have Russian in your Curriculum, itíll set you apart from the rest. Your skills in Russian will open new opportunities for you.
- Language courses online are always available, you can study when you have time; it means that there arenít scheduled lessons, nor wasted time, not having to spend money in traveling for face to face lessons.

What we don't like
- Learning Russian could be a practical decision, but will be relatively hard for an English-speaking to learn, especially if youíre only taking online lessons and you donít have anyone with whom to practice or speak what you learn. Of course it would help if you live near Russian speakers, but itís a quite difficult to be so lucky and have Russian neighbors.
- Russian is a complicate language (according to many people), itís not something you can learn only online and have a great level on grammar, vocabulary and especially in pronunciation. There are things that youíll need to learn face to face, although with the technology nowadays you can have many ways for doing it.
- If you donít have a minimum level of computer knowledge in order to use successfully all programs and accessories on the Internet and be comfortable with the online environment, it will make things harder than having face to face instruction. Some things youíll need to know are: Use a variety of search engines, navigate on the World Wide Web, and use your Email and some FTP processes (if it sounds complicate donít worry itís easier than you might think).
- Technology is reliable (in most cases); but there are some problems that occur eventually; like when the online program fails, or a tool in the learning process have a breakdown, or a problem with the server. Maybe the problem is not extern; and itís on your computer or your internet connection and youíre not qualified for solving it. This reason is very pessimistic but can happen, once in a million maybe.
