Russian for foreigners
Engaging with a country’s culture is one of the most important and beneficial ways to develop your language skills. Culture and language are intimately related. A few weeks in a foreign land lifts language learning out of the stale confines of the classroom and gives it a new sense of immediacy and vitality. A chance to speak Russian for foreigners in an exciting new environment can be really rewarding and satisfying.
Learning Russian for foreigners provides the context for what can otherwise seem a distant and complex language. When here, you can see the language in action in everyday life, functioning down to a very basic level. As we say here in Russia: “Дело мастера боится!” - “Practice makes perfect”. What is more: as you will come to see, language learning can be a fun and liberating experience!
Courses and Teachers
Here in the school Language of Time, we believe that human contact is of foremost importance when learning Russian for foreigners, so we always try to keep the class sizes small. We provide a wide number of classes at all levels, so that you will be placed with the right group of people. This is important for us, so that we can gauge the correct pace and level at which to direct our teaching, but also, we hope, it will help you to feel comfortable with a group of people with similar experience and with a view to the same goals.
All our teachers are experienced and motivated. Most of all we aim to be approachable. Productive learning is best built upon on a direct, easy-going and friendly relationship with your teacher.
The school is very international and has a cosmopolitan atmosphere. You are welcome wherever you come from. We think it is important to have a wide variety of nationalities coming into our school, so you will feel included whatever your place of origin. Coming here is a great opportunity to mix with people from all across the world, expand your horizons, and perhaps even make some contacts that you will cherish for ever.
Studying Russian for foreigners is as much about what you learn outside the classroom as what you learn from your textbooks.
