«Language Heroes» is a Russian online language learning community uniting people passionate about languages.
Our unique program is a language marathon which lasts for 12 weeks and consists of a guided linguistic program, orientation in online materials and the support of a closed group community on Vk.com (it’s a Russian version of Facebook)
Each marathon we unite over 800 Russians studying various languages, and we’ve already opened our doors to several dozens of foreigners willing to master or just to start studying Russian. After 3 months, participants show significant increase in their language skills.
Here’s what you get from within our program:
— weekly tasks both in English and Russian aimed at improving various language skills and transforming you into an indepedent language learner
— support of an English-speaking mentor (recomendations on text-books and useful materials, answering your questions, various challenges etc) You may choose either English or Russian
— access to the most amazing and productive online language learning community in Russia
Moreover, you will surely find people who are learning your native language and may become your language partners or even friends

In the 1st half of the video you can see his current level, and in the 2nd – his work in progress. And you can see actual results!
Joan is from Spain (привет, наш дорогой Герой :))
He started learning Russian in LH from A1 and has been learning it with us for 6 months. And his Russian is awesome!
I think this project and community is great and perfect. I started to learn Russian out of an inner feeling/longing, there is no ‘objective’ reason in my case, there was no connection to Russia either. I never met people from Russia before nor did I ever travel to Russia.
This project is a perfect match to connect with Russian people and to start discovering about the Russian social life/culture (especially through VK although I cannot read yet the posts of the Russian fellow-language learners)
The tasks are very engaging, to take a theme every week to put some focus and emphasis on.
I like it very much and would like to participate in the next one project too.
