1st and 3rd Friday
10:00 to 12:00
In the first year have completed the BBC course called Active beginners. This has given us a grounding in basic communication and the alphabet. We will now pass to the Complete Russian Teach Yourself and acquaint ourselves with grammar.
Although Russian as a Slav language has few overlaps with Western European languages members who have working knowledge of French or Latin will be at an advantage.
We look more widely at Russian history and culture when the texts lead us that way.
