Russian-1 level is intended for students who have limited or no experience with the language. You are new to the language, or perhaps you studied it in high school or college, but you haven’t used that language much at the time or in recent years.
At this level students will learn to handle a number of uncomplicated communicative tasks in straightforward social situations. You will be able to understand sentences and frequently used expressions related to areas of most immediate relevance and need (e.g., basic personal and family information, preferences, shopping, local geography, and ordering food).
The focus of our sessions is on spoken Russian to develop speaking and listening, while reading and writing skills take a secondary role.
