Work

Basically, all the work I do is around teaching English and Russian as foreign languages. Through the years I tried to develop and gather useful materials in these two areas of studies. To make it more convenient for the current and potential students, at some point I decided to split up the resources for the learners of English and Russian into two separate websites - english4real.com and achkasoff.com. The first is about EFL and delivered mainly in Russian, the latter is about RFL and is in English.
