'Difference' Method: A1-A2 Telegram Russian Guide

Stuck in the loop of confusing Russian words like ‘сейчас‘ and ‘теперь‘, or ‘так‘ and ‘такой‘? I know how you feel – and I’ve got something that could make your language journey a whole lot easier. 

Understanding the "Difference" Method

In the “difference” method we take two or more Russian words and explore how they’re alike or different. 

Our brain cells are really good at linking different bits of information together. This idea, known by scientists as ‘Hebb’s Law,’ is often said like this: ‘neurons that fire together, wire together’.

By using this method, you’re tapping into the natural strengths of your brain to remember Russian words more effectively. 

One Topic, Better Results

Think about a boxer training for a big match. They spend a lot of time perfecting just one punch. This helps them to get really good at it.

The “Difference” method works the same way. We focus on just one thing – spotting what’s the same and what’s different. By doing this, just like the boxer, we can get really good at it. 

This focused approach is the most effective way to develop your Russian skills. It’s a simple technique, but it’s proven to be incredibly effective.
