This five-day course is set in a modern, fairly central and very friendly Fitzwilliam College, which has a long-lasting tradition of Russian and Slavonic studies.

Comfortable en-suite accommodation, ample parking. 15 minutes’ walk to Cambridge city centre, or 5 minutes by bus.

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 15+, 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. There is no upper age limit!


  • 20 hours of language tuition in small groups, with a strong emphasis on the linguistic component: speaking and listening, reading, writing and grammar – all in a fun and creative way.
  • 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.
  • 5 levels – from Absolute Beginners to Fluent, based on an initial assessment test.
  • Tutors are all native speakers – experienced, knowledgeable, enthusiastic and considerate.

Extra-curricular programme will include talks by invited speakers, a walking tour of Cambridge, 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.
