Learn Russian

At the Russian Virtual Village, you’ll learn Russian in a virtual learning community setting. Language classes are tailored to learners of all ages and stages — whether you’re looking for an early introduction or an intensive language program, we’ll meet your level of language and help you to advance during your time at Lesnoe Ozero.


At a Lesnoe Ozero Virtual Village session, you may create khokhloma style art, take a virtual ride on the Trans-Siberian Railway or learn Russian-style tea-making. Activities are based in Russian culture and utilized to further villagers’ language acquisition.

Tech Requirements

In order to best take advantage of this interactive experience, you will need the resources necessary for e-learning (reliable internet access, a device per villager with a webcam and microphone) and any individual adaptive devices needed; headphones are recommended but not required. Use of Chromebooks is not recommended as villagers cannot access all the features of the Virtual Village platform. As a program of Concordia College, we are coordinating our efforts with the college so that all virtual platforms will have the necessary and appropriate security features to protect the privacy of users, including compliance with FERPA and COPPA.


In addition to need-based scholarships offered through the Passport Fund, the Russian Language Village is offering merit-based Global Excellence Awards. Youth interested in attending a Virtual Village program in the summer can apply for a chance to receive a $100-$200 award. Priority consideration will be given to new participants and villagers from backgrounds that have been traditionally underrepresented at Lesnoe Ozero. Priority deadline is June 15. Please submit this form to apply.
