A wonderful opportunity to combine an intensive Russian course with the pleasure of meeting like-minded people. Also, a good way of maintaining, improving or refreshing your Russian.
PARTICIPANTS: Anyone aged 16+, including those in the middle of their A-levels and those starting or doing a university course linked to Russian history, politics, literature or art.

- Much emphasis on interaction, group work, role-play and discussions.
- Enrich your vocabulary, learn idioms, brush up your grammar, immerse yourself in conversation and improve pronunciation.
- Plus 5 hours of extra-curricular activities.
- 4 levels (depending on the intake) – from complete Beginners to Advanced, based on an initial assessment test.

Extra-curricular programme will include talks by invited speakers, a walking tour of Cambridge with a visit to a museum, games, songs, poetry and music, a screening of a film and, finally, a concert – to supplement your linguistic experience in a warm and stimulating atmosphere.
