Feedback:
This was my first ever online course of any description, and not only did I learn a lot in a very short time, but it’s just such good value. I’m actually a Russian teacher myself, but it was great to be a student again (to be able to ask simple questions and make mistakes!) and to spend time learning about an area of Russian literature that I don’t know very well. The group was incredibly small (1-3 pupils), which gave lots of opportunities to contribute ideas. One of the nice things about the course was that everyone on it was really passionate about poetry, so there was a real energy and joy in the learning progress. Larisa, our teacher, was very skilled at helping all of us get over language barrier issues, and the poems had been carefully chosen to make them accessible for people of all language levels. I have very little free time (juggling family, church and work), so committing to a course like this is always a challenge, but I’m now really tempted to do some more…

Reading and Listening special course

You will learn how to read an unknown text (either a fairy tale or a newspaper article) without using a dictionary. You will be able to get the main idea of the text and retell it. You will also improve your oral fluency and learn new vocabulary.
