Russian beginner classes aim at students who have no prior knowledge of Russian. The course will teach you how to communicate basic information as well as give you the skill of reading and writing in Russian. You will learn and use around 200 words on this course. We strongly encourage pairwork and groupwork in our lessons to create a friendly and working environment. You will be provided with the materials such as handouts, MP3 and videos to take home and practise the language. We will also organise meetups with native speakers of Russian so you can practice with them.
