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.

Russian trip package for student groups

Course program

If you are a school teacher or university professor, we’ll be happy to help you organise a student trip to Russia.

The popularity of language travel has been growing for decades, and it’s easy to see why. Despite the fact that it certainly requires considerable time and money investment, it has proven to be the fastest and most efficient way of mastering the language, especially practical communication skills. Above that, is also always has a great impact on students’ motivation. As every teacher knows, motivation is a crucial factor. It is true for adults, who usually have an important personal or job-related reason to learn s foreign language, but even more so for high school and university students, who sometimes don’t have a very high level of motivation.

Group trips to St. Petersburg, with lots of real-life language practice in a marvelous 5-million city with its vibrant cultural and social life make great boost both to students’ language level and motivation and remain an unforgettable experience for life.

We take care of all aspects of your language trip: visa support, accommodation, meeting at the airport and transfer to the city centre, language courses and practice, cultural activities program, assistance with shopping and everything else including health or security issues, if any arise.

We regard Russian language  teachers as our best partners and most precious clients, we appreciate long-term cooperation with you, and we are always happy to offer your group excellent service and treatment.

Грамматика в курсе РКИ: как из проблемы сделать приключение

(уровни А1 – В1)

Хотите стать популярным преподавателем русского как иностранного?

Хотите, чтобы студентам нравились ваши уроки и они быстро добивались хороших результатов?

Хотите чувствовать себя комфортно и уверенно в аудитории?

Есть 2 пути:

– долгие годы проб и ошибок, находок и разочарований;

– наш курс подготовки преподавателей РКИ!

Если русский – ваш родной язык (поздравляем!), и вы хотите обучать (и обучить!) русскому студентов, коллег, друзей, членов семьи или любых других иностранцев, вам всё равно нужна подготовка. Простое владение языком так же не делает вас преподавателем, как хорошие зубы – стоматологом, а здоровое сердце – кардиологом.

Преподаватели русского языка, которые хотят освоить профессию преподавателя для иностранцев, увидят, что это совершенно другая профессия, которой нужно учиться, но вполне можно обучиться.

Этот курс поможет молодым преподавателям, которые получили соответствующий диплом, но не получили практической подготовки, чтобы войти в класс и преподавать.

Таким был когда-то я: после 5 лет обучения я окончил отделение преподавателей РКИ филологического факультета СПбГУ с прекрасной филологической эрудицией и полным отсутствием практической методики. Учился методом проб и ошибок, озарений и экспериментов, у старших коллег и на живых студентах. Ещё через пять лет я стал академическим директором частных курсов, через 7 – написал первый «Поехали!», через 10 – открыл свою школу, а через 27 – создал этот курс.

Преподаватели иностранных языков смогут смело добавить к числу преподаваемых языков и свой родной язык, как это сделали прошедшие мои «живые» курсы преподаватели, включая мою жену, музу и соавтора Аллу Чернышову, в прошлом – преподавателя английского языка.

Зарубежные коллеги получат набор надёжных методических инструментов от квалифицированного носителя языка и будут увереннее чувствовать себя в аудитории.

Оказавшиеся за границей соотечественники, рассматривающие преподавание русского как способ заработка, тактику социализации, и возможность сохранить и донести до жителей новой родины свою культуру, смогут честно смотреть в глаза своим студентам и оказать им профессиональную помощь им в изучении русского языка.

Меня много лет просили написать книгу для преподавателя, но…

Я решил, что показать и рассказать, как преподавать, будет намного интереснее и эффективнее, чем описывать.

После прошедших с неизменным огромным успехом семинаров и мастер классов в Санкт-Петербурге, в Москве, в Красноярске, а также за границей: в Брюсселе, Вене, Граце, Зальцбурге, Инсбруке, Любляне, Будапеште, Барселоне, Париже, Франкфурте, Бремене, Риме, Милане, Флоренции, Болонье, Фаэнце, Больцано, Братиславе, Праге, Риге, Варшаве, Хельсинки, Анкаре, Стамбуле… я решил, что не могу успеть побывать везде, где преподаватели хотят, чтобы я поделился своим опытом, и собрал весь этот опыт: и написания всех «Поехали!», и 27 лет преподавания от 20 до 60 часов в неделю. Так получился этот курс:

– 45 видео,

– творческие задания,

– живые вебинары с авторами учебников «Поехали!»,

– «пошаговые» инструкции по всем самым сложным вопросам базового (и не только) курса русского языка,

– примеры для объяснений и рекомендации по выбору и созданию учебных материалов.

Главное, чему научит вас это курс – как в увлекательной и коммуникативной форме построить и активировать у студентов грамматическую базу, даже если они не очень хотят «изучать грамматику», и как отвечать на многочисленные вопросы (свои и студентов), не прячась за цитатой из Тютчева «Умом Россию не понять»…

В общем, все получат подробные и практические инструкции, позволяющие проводить яркие и эффективные уроки, необходимые специальные знания и выработают навыки, необходимые для успешной работы. Будет интересно, полезно, и каждый найдёт для себя что-то новое. Все важные грамматические темы даются с сочетании с темами разговорными и советами по организации общения на уроке. И для каждой темы даны примеры, объяснения, рисунки и задания. Курс содержит рекомендации по использованию учебных материалов (не только «Поехали!»). На онлайн-встречах или дополнительных индивидуальных консультациях вы сможете получить ответы на все свои вопросы.

Вы научитесь:

– просто и интересно говорить о сложном,

– выводить в речь и отрабатывать выученный материал,

– находить баланс между грамматикой и коммуникацией,

– предвидеть и предотвращать ошибки студентов,

– отвечать на вопросы «почему?», «зачем?», «как это?» и т. п.

– отличать хорошие «рабочие» учебные материалы от «сырых» и непродуманных,

– строить свой собственный курс и создавать учебные материалы.

После прослушивания курса вы получите сертификат, а если успешно пройдёте курс «Мастер» с практическими заданиями и тестовое занятие в конце – удостоверение государственного образца (при наличии диплома филолога, преподавателя русского языка и литературы, лингвиста, преподавателя РКИ).

Лучшие выпускники, кроме того, получат мои персональные письменные рекомендации и, возможно, работу с нашими онлайн-студентами.

Глаголы движения пойдут как по маслу, а виды глагола ваши студенты будут знать в совершенстве!

Many Russian books and courses are way too old-fashioned and conservative, others are not linguistically accurate. “Poekhali!”, written by professional linguists Stanislav Chernyshov and Alla Chernyshova and based on innovative teaching techniques, teaches you up-to-date Russian, and makes learning Russian efficient, easy and fun.
