Online Cambridge Russian Autumn Course 2021

Saturday 13 November, 2021, 10:00 - Sunday 21 November, 2021, 22:30

We are delighted to announce that we are offering this online Russian course to all those who could not attend the face-to-face Russian Summer School at Girton College (Cambridge) in August 2021.

This course is short and spread out, to avoid both the physical and psychological strain of computer work. A major advantage is that you will be able to enjoy the online lessons without having to travel or commute, and you can join us from any corner of the globe.

We shall follow our long-established tradition of daily themes, interactive teaching groups formed according to the students’ levels of Russian, a considerate and flexible individual approach, and a supportive and inspirational atmosphere that we aspire to create online.

The Online Cambridge Russian Autumn Course will comprise four morning sessions (on two consecutive weekends) and an extra-curricular evening programme of four additional 1.5 hour slots:

Saturday 13 November – Sunday 14 November
& Saturday 20 November – Sunday 21 November

10:00 – 10:50 – Lesson 1
11:10 – 12:00 – Lesson 2
12:20 – 13:10 – Lesson 3

19:30 – 21:00 – Evening Programme (which will include a talk, a short film and discussion, and an interactive quiz).

Our teachers are: Anna Nerukh, Ioulia Ignatievskaia, Alla Viktorova, Laura Thomas, and Tanya Yurasova

The online teaching platform to be used is Zoom.
Access a Zoom tutorial here.

Extra Zoom training will be offered to those who are less familiar with it (let us know in the enrolment form).
