    Valentin Aliferov

    Intensive lessons with Venya were memorable for me because I received only relevant, current information on the topic. Everything was explained with real-life examples, in simple terms, and with humor. :-) Furthermore, I was pleased with the technical and organizational sides, including webinars, chats, and reminders. Everything was clear, modern, and tasteful. I’m looking forward to the next intensives!

    Elizaveta Cherepanova

    Venya is a very good teacher. He always smiles and jokes. And when the mood is good, I’ve noticed it’s much easier to study. When explaining the material, Venya usually gives such vibrant--I would even say "flashy"--examples that stick in your memory very well. I also liked that Venya communicates with everyone as if they were long-familiar friends. This vibe is very comfortable. That would be great to talk face-to-face! I have done only one intensive grammar course so far. It was rather short but capacious. It may seem a bit complicated if you’re a complete beginner. But those who know the grammar will still find something interesting in the course. And it won’t necessarily be related to the grammar :-) It is more important that there be instant communication with the teacher, a resident of the United States. He is immersed in the language environment and knows all the life situations first hand. It was very useful that he repeated and reinforced many rules and topics. To all those who are still thinking about it, I recommend trying at least one intensive course. That way, you’ll see how the process is organized and how Venya is in action. He’s so cool!

    Alina Rozova

    My first intensive workshop with Venya left the most positive impression on me! Everything is very accessible and understandable. The knowledge that I once had was extended and put into the system. And what’s important in my opinion: the intensive course is easy and fun, unlike the lessons with a tutor in school in the past. To sum up, I can say that this is not my last intensive course, and Venya is a very talented teacher. Everything is great, keep it up!

    Elizabeth Korobeinikova

    Intensive courses seriously helped me in learning English. First of all, I would like to say a big thanks to LinguaTrip for organizing everything and to Venya for the excellent presentation of information. I liked everything! The classes were so informative and interesting. Homework helped consolidate information, and I liked the tests and speaking tasks very much. I highly recommend enrolling in at least one intensive course. You will understand everything by yourself. For me, this is not the last intensive workshop because it is the best way to learn English I’ve seen so far. I highly recommend enrolling in at least one intensive workshop, and you will understand everything by yourself. Personally for me, this is not the last intensive workshop, for now it is the best way to learn English.

    Juliana Glukhova

    When I receive a notification that there is a new video on Marina’s YouTube channel, I go to watch it straight away. I enjoy learning English with Marina’s videos, as there is always something to note down and then to use in practice when communicating with people from other countries. Lessons with tips and tricks from Marina help me boost my pronunciation. I actually do go to the mirror and practice until I manage to make the right sounds. This leads to an understanding of language and not simply memorizing words and phrases. I’ve even started to think in English! Videos are always well-structured: there is an introduction, key points, and examples. I like this approach. Marina includes only the important bits and no filler.

    Kristina Belaya

    I discovered Marina’s channel over a year ago when I started seriously researching the topic of moving to the USA. She had a lot of videos on this topic, as well as numerous interesting English lessons. Since watching the first video, I can’t stop. I’ve been learning English for a long time but didn’t have enough time to attend offline courses. But Marina is a perfect teacher for me. In her videos, she briefly but comprehensively explains the theme. In 15-20 minutes you learn everything you need to know. Also, Marina uses real-life examples and it makes her lessons more relevant. She combines useful information with interesting stories and it makes classes more exciting. Her videos are a few minutes of English learning every day, even for those who have no spare time.
