The course is a product of 10 years of developmental work with Russian-language native speaking intellectuals representing different area of knowledge. They share with you their opinion through intellectual exchange understanding the language learning aspect. The country-specific on topical regional issues will strengthen your passive understanding, while your speaking will be activated through moderated argument and discourse. The less formal peer-coaching relationship will activate a different register of language and will help you speak using simpler forms and express your ideas easily and idiomatically.
Live interpreter practice in museums and special events, with feedback from your instructor, will consolidate your learning. Students find that such exercises increase motivation and confidence, through the excitement of being able to get meaningful messages. This course is great as a pre-deployment refresher course for pre-intermediate and higher speakers.
