    I am a recently retired translator of Russian and German at the Foreign Office and would like to brush up my spoken Russian. A few years ago I was at Extensive standard having passed the FCO exam at this level. I spoke to Olga Khimkai only this evening and she told me that a class of intermediate / advanced students met on Wednesdays at Hills Road at 1900 hrs. I agreed to go along to her group but realised afterwards that my wife needs the car on these evenings and so I would not be able to go on Wednesdays. Could you suggest a group which I could fit into on any other day.

      You can try one of the classes for advanced learners (see above), and/or a Russian Conversation group – click on page “Russian Conversation”. Hope this helps.
