Learn idioms that express emotions, whether you are annoyed, indignant, delighted bored or happy – or just wanting to say that you are in a hurry. We will look at idioms that use similar words or structures, but have different meanings and will practise how to use them in everyday speech. Join this course to speak Russian more naturally and confidently!
The aim of this course is to teach and activate in speech the most-used idioms in conversational Russian.
Idioms are the ornamentation of any language and make up a significant part of our daily speech. We use them without thinking to express feelings, or to express how we feel about a situation.
We present «Russian Idioms», a course intended for students at level A2 who wish to expand their vocabulary. By taking this course, you will not only understand conversational Russian with ease, but also use the idioms on your own, which will make your speech rich and free.
