Russian

Добро пожаловать на урок русского языка!
Arabic

The Russian language courses of the University of Groningen Language Centre focus mainly on speaking and understanding Russian. During the course you will first learn the Cyrillic script, in order to be able to read and write Russian. The Language Centre offers a beginners course and Russian courses of various levels for those who already have some knowledge of the Russian language.

Participants will  learn to read and speak in Russian and communicate about everyday subjects such as working, eating and drinking and hobbies. Grammar is not a goal in itself, but will be used to support language acquisition. You will also be introduced to several cultural aspects of Russia.

Language of Instruction           

The target language is the language of instruction as much as possible. The course is taught in Dutch and/or English. Russian courses are open to native and non-native speakers of Dutch. The course material is in Dutch and English.
