Course Overview

 

Online Russian Levels 1&2 is a Beginners Russian course for students who have never studied the Russian language before. This is an intensive Russian course allowing you to take two Russian levels in 10 weeks and progress more quickly. If you’re unsure of your level, then take our quick Russian language level test here or check our levels chart.

 

Our Online Russian language classes take place via Zoom with a qualified, experienced teacher and fellow students. The interactive lessons emulate our face-to-face classes, and via teacher screen-sharing, students are able to experience a live classroom environment. From vocabulary activities and covering grammar points on the white board, to listening exercises, file sharing and ‘break-out rooms’ to practise speaking with classmates, students can learn without leaving the comfort of their homes. Take a look at an example of one of our online classes in this video.
