Mini-Group Russian course
Mini-Group Russian language courses are held in mini-groups and include all aspects of Russian language: speaking Russian, writing, reading, listening, Russian grammar and pronunciation with a special emphasis on general daily Russian communication skills. Our instructors who teach group Russian courses use a variety of modern teaching techniques such as role play, task based activities, games and discussions. An advantage of our Group Russian language courses is the exciting international atmosphere and exposure to a variety of cultures that one can experience learning Russian with fellow students whose backgrounds range from Hawaii to Iceland and from New Zealand to Great Britain. The diversity of Extra Class students proves its ability to recon out to people of different countries and cultures.

We always encourage prospective students to take our online test prior to arrival, but the final assessment is done on the first morning at school. Students are placed in groups according to their level. It might happen, that there is no group matching your level, and then we offer 2 individual lessons per day instead of 4 lessons in a mini-group, which is equivalent both in terms of money and efficiency.
One level takes 4-6 weeks to complete
In one or two weeks a beginner can learn the Russian alphabet, gain a basic understanding of the language system, and learn a number of the most useful words and expressions used in everyday Russian. Non-beginners can improve their language skills at any level even within one week.
Combined with the Russian courses and wide range of entertainment activities, our Language school provides lectures, which give a deeper perspective of Russian life and history, and conversation club meetings where students can develop their communication skills discussing a variety of interesting topics.
