You will also learn to read and speak in Russian and communicate about everyday subjects such as working, eating and drinking and hobbies.

Course Content

At the end of this Russian course you will be able to introduce yourself, order in a restaurant, ask for directions and understand and write simple texts. You will also be introduced to several cultural aspects of Russia.
