The Russian for beginners 1 + 2 course is a double level course: two course levels will have been covered by the end of this course. A great advantage is that you can automatically flow from beginners 1 to beginners 2 without having to take an exam in between the two levels. This course consists of twenty weekly sessions of 2,5 hours each. The final exam takes place after the course on a predetermined date.

What will you learn?

During this course you will learn the basics of the Russian language, with emphasis on speaking and listening skills in an everyday context. Topics that are covered include:

  • introducing yourself;
  • family;
  • city;
  • asking and giving directions;
  • airport, hotel, restaurant;
  • making an appointment and giving your opinion;

In addition to the above, you will be able to read and write the Cyrillic alphabet and to lead and understand a simple conversation. You will also have a small vocabulary of approximately
700+ words, with which you can formulate simple sentence structures for common and everyday situations. The final level of the course is beginners 2, similar to the A1.2 level according to the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR).
