Our teachers use the communicative approach to teaching, which means that students acquire skills through interaction in the target language.
The accent is put on functional/useable vocabulary and grammar patterns.
Classes emphasize oral and listening skills. Contact time with the language is all-important — it paves way for a better command of it. Not just listening to the teacher, but having personal contact with the language, practising the sounds for themselves, formulating sentence patterns, making mistakes and learning from them — all this helps students master English.
This course is intended for a very wide range of learners. It will help people with little or no knowledge of Russian to quickly become proficient. The general Russian language course is designed to teach you conversational, day-to-day Russian, and covers such essential aspects as meeting people, getting around the city and shopping. Our teachers will not only familiarize you with background knowledge on Russian etiquette and traditions, but will teach you how to put your cultural knowledge to use. By the end of the course you will have acquired a large vocabulary and a basic introduction to Russian grammar, and you will be able to converse and be understood in a variety of situations. You will also be able to socialize, read books and newspapers in Russian, and watch TV and movies. The advanced level program includes reading original Russian literature, newspapers and magazines. Study with us, and you will see a real improvement day by day. We offer five levels of General Russian language courses:
- Russian for Beginners
Each level has 100 hours of classes (1 lesson is 60 mins) which are structured to develop the major language skills of Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing -- with an emphasis on speaking.
This course is designed for people in business, NGOs and international organisations. During the course you will learn how to use Russian in different professional and social situations, as well as how to develop your grammatical competence and conversational skills. We will provide you with a customised program and a schedule to meet your personal needs. The course timetable is flexible and is worked out individually. Lessons can also be held at weekends and in locations other than the centre.
Corporate clients may choose a language course in General Russian to improve their staffs' language skills, as well as a customized course, which is specially tailored to meet their work and personal interests.
Types of Classes
We provide teaching in small groups of up to six students, which guarantees effective learning. Groups study two or three times a week or every day, depending on the students’ needs. Each lesson lasts 1 hour 20 minutes.
One-to-one classes are demanding and require full concentration. The exact content of the course is jointly determined by the teacher and the student during the first lesson. The student is invited to specify his/her fields of interests, which gives the teacher an idea of what the student aims to achieve and enables a study plan to be prepared. One-to-one classes are available for all levels. They last 60 minutes,
Group + One-to-One Courses
Some students need to be in groups to develop particular Russian language skills, but at the same time have specific requirements, which are better dealt with one-to-one. This course allows students to combine both approaches: e.g. 4 lessons per week in a group + 4 lessons per week individually.
