OK, learning a new language for kids makes sense, but why Russian?
The benefits of mastering a second language are clear: enhanced
opportunities, enhanced cultural awareness, and enhanced communication
abilities. But why choose Russian for kids? Even parents who recognize
the benefits of starting their children on a language early may wonder which to
select. Why not Spanish, for instance? Or Wolof? Truth is, you can’t go wrong,
but consider some of the particular attractions of Russian for kids.
Russian offers its speakers access to a rich cultural history and
a seat of great political influence that has been instrumental in shaping the

With a new school year, this is a a terrific opportunity for introducing Russian to kids. Make it a family project. Use it as a boredom buster. When children whine that there’s nothing to do, respond with a resounding nyet! Break out the borscht, pop in the Muzzy disc, and crank up the Tchaicovsky.
