Why Should You Take Russian Language Courses

Learning Russian language takes determination and time. However, why should people in Ireland study this language anyway? Well, this is what we intend to find out in this post. Just read on.

Even though you stand to gain an array of benefits from studying Russian language, the answer to whether or not you should take these courses depend on what you intend to achieve. Some of the reasons are sentimental, some are intellectual and some are practical. No matter your reason, it’s very important that you have a clear reason or idea for taking Russian language courses. The reason behind your study will be your motivation during the time you will be studying.


If you have a Russian national as your spouse, girlfriend or boyfriend, taking Russian Language courses will be a great idea. When you learn this language, you will be able to communicate with each other. Learning Russian language will also help you learn the culture of your significant other. This way, you will understand where he or she comes from, and this will avoid misunderstandings that would normally occur between people of different cultures. By knowing their culture, you will understand your partner’s way of thinking.

You should do the same if you have relatives or in-laws who speak Russian language. You will easily connect with them and become friends if you enroll for these courses to learn their language.


You might be an Irish, but you are planning to move to Russia. If this is the case, then enrolling for and taking Russian language courses is a good idea. When you learn Russian language, you will be able to communicate, connect and integrate easily with the locals when you get there. Of course, many Russians speak English, and a good number speak Irish. However, this doesn’t mean that you should not learn their first language. Otherwise, your communication will be limited to people who know Irish and English only.  Learning Russian language will show that you have genuine interest in the country and the locals. This will make the locals accept you more readily.

Studying in Russia

Russia is home to some of the best colleges and universities of the world. If you are planning to study in Russia, you should have some knowledge about Russian language. This is still important even if the college, university or school you intend to study in teaches your course in English, Irish or any other language that you already know. To have the best experience during your studies, you should know how to communicate with locals in their first language.

Going back to your roots

A human being is a product of its surrounding. So, your first language becomes the one you acquire first from your immediate surroundings. Your parents might be Russians, but because you grew up in Ireland, you only know how to speak Irish, English or any other local language, but you don’t know Russian language. If you want to know more about your parents and your roots, you should take Russian language courses. Knowing your parents’ first language will help you trace your family tree.

Communicating secretly

Russian language is not common in Ireland. So, if you have a relative or a friend who speak Russian language, you will be free to speak with him or her in public because you know that no one understands what the two of you are talking about.

You don’t have to have a reason to take Russian language courses in Ireland. If you are fascinated by Russian language, and you would want to learn it, then there is no need to hesitate. After all, one or two languages are never enough. In fact, being fascinated about language learning is enough motivation.
