What will be covered in the Conversational Russian Course?
In 10 one-hour lessons, you will acquire basic knowledge of Russian to be able to travel to Russia and communicate at a basic level. You will also learn to read and write in Russian which has the Cyrillic alphabet, which will be a great start on its own to learn more about Russian culture, literature, history, language and society.
The knowledge of Russian will add benefits to your career prospects and holiday plans.
We will use lots of interesting techniques for diction and memory that enhance speaking if you are worried about the language barrier.
In line with the contacts with the new family of people who speak Russian, it’s good to study Russian to be able to maintain contact and to avoid the pitfalls of misunderstandings and misconceptions, and difficulties in communication.
Different people can read things differently, humour in different countries is different as are the mentality, values, and traditions.
All countries have their own traditions, at times it can cause a threat to life if you do not know the country’s traditions. It can be dangerous not to know some nuances, laws, and rules of another country.
We also run our Russian Grammar course, which lasts for 5 weeks and takes place every Wednesday and Friday at 6 pm for an hour.
