Semi-analytical method of surface plasmon frequency calculation for the system of two almost touching coupled dielectric coated metallic nanospheres is presented. The method allows transforming the problem to numerical solution of two simple algebraic equations for arbitrary values of parameters - particle radius, distance between sphere centers, dielectric permittivity of the matrix, dielectrics and metals. It is especially easy to get the obvious graphical solution. The surface plasmon frequencies of longitudinal and transversal oscillations of the system are calculated and good agreement with the experimental results is achieved.
