General Russian Standard Course

Overall rating: 9 based on 2 reviews

Program Description

Through this program, participants will increase their Russian knowledge and abilities quickly and master communication in a variety of real world situations including visiting doctors, discussing health issues, talking about interests and daily life, restaurants, sightseeing, shopping, and introductions.

This course covers all the basic elements of language including writing (informal e-mails, application forms), speaking (real world situations, discussions), listening (films, radio programs, commercials, news programs, and course book audios), and reading (short articles, announcements, maps, menus, and billboards). Students will also participate in role play situations.

We have organized and planned this program to help our students learn a lot of information in a short period of time. Participants will see a boost in their language skill in only a matter of days. Grammar and vocabulary go along with carefully selected communication contexts so that you will not need to learn unnecessary rules and words.

This course features small group sizes so that students’ needs are met and there is plenty of individual attention. Participants will have more opportunities to speak which will help cement this skill quickly.
