About our courses
We welcome everyone with absolutely no knowledge of Russian or those who already know some phrases but haven't had a chance to try regular classes. We offer evening, weekend or intensive one week Russian courses so you can surely find a course suitable for you. We welcome new students all year round so simply get in touch whenever you want to get started and we will get you on board. If you missed a starting date don't worry - you can still join in as we offer catch-up lessons that will get you up to speed with the rest of the group!
We use the course book titled 5 Elements. Textbook A1 + MP3 by Tatyana Esmantova. In Russian it’s Russkij jazyk: 5 elementov. Uchebnik + CD MP3. Uroven' A1 (Elementarnyj)
