This real-time online course is designed to cater for complete beginners who would like to learn the basics of the Russian language and culture in a fast and fun way. If you would like to travel to Russia, you will find it very useful with the course focus on travel phrases and oral communication. Some of the topics include self-introduction, numbers, telling the time, asking for the way, eating out, shopping, booking a hotel room and dealing with communication problems. The students will practise the language in an interactive way, whilst at the same time learning more about the culture of the Russian-speaking world. The course takes place via Zoom.

Why Russian?
  • Learning Russian will allow you to communicate with more than 250 million people worldwide.
  • Russia is home to some of the world’s finest art traditions such as ballet, theater, literature and music.
  • The Golden Ring is a popular tourist route through Russia, which threads its way through key Medieval towns and cities which have been left mainly undisturbed by modernity and industrialization.
  • There are more than 25 UNESCO World Heritage sites throughout Russia, which is home to spectacular and diverse nature reserves.
  • Russian architecture, as apparent in St. Basil’s Cathedral, is intricate and monumental, reflecting the rich history of the country.
