    Thanks Vincent

    Она учит {кого-то} русскому.

    Она обучает {кого-то} русскому.


    So you could write in two different ways. I didn't know the word 'обучает'. I must look it up in my dictionary.

    What is 'кого-то' ?

    Somebody (in Accusative)
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    I think you can also say:

    Она преподаёт русский язык

    Мария преподаёт русский язык

    'Я видел Марию' is OK.
    Well, I don't know what to say. I want to say thanks to the Academy, to Mama, to Papa and to my dog. I love you all.
