Management

Dr Olga Suvorova, Director of Russian Keys Limited, has a PhD in Cultural Anthropology and an MA with First Class Honours in Linguistics, Teaching and Interpreting/Translation (Russian, English, French) from the Faculty of Foreign Languages and Area Studies of the Lomonosov Moscow State University. Full Member of the New Zealand Society of Translators and Interpreters (NZSTI).

Methodology

Our philosophy is that Russian is best learned and used when all skills, written and oral, are combined on the basis of a deep background knowledge of the Russian world. Thus, Russian culture is an essential part of our Russian Language and Culture Courses which are designed to develop and maintain Russian language skills (speaking, listening, writing, and reading) necessary to communicate in Russian in most everyday situations. We believe that one size does not fit all: our courses are tailored for specific clients with particular emphasis on specific vocabulary.

Team

Our team of language experts, in which Moscow State University postgraduates are heavily represented, is familiar with the realia of the English-speaking world. We can handle a wide range of vocabulary across the full gamut of sectors, such as business, banking, medical, finance, agriculture, diplomacy, engineering, technical, environmental, sports and traditional academic.
