With the recent revival of the Cold War - are you aware how useful a knowledge of the Russian Language might be? It is one of the official languages of the United Nations. There are more native speakers of Russian in the European part of Russia than there are native speakers of their own language than in any other country in Europe. Next year will be the 60th anniversary of the launching of the first artificial satellite in space - the Sputnik - and it was Russian. The modern Russian language borrows heavily from the English language - but in a very precise way. And in scientific literature the rate of borrowing has doubled over the last thirty years.
The course could suit anyone visiting Russia - for business or tourism.
An important feature of the course will be an overview of the Russian language - followed by a detailed examination of important aspects of Russian grammar - including the differences between English & Russian.
The main objective of the course will be to introduce students to the Russian language and prepare them for studying seriously on their own.
There will be a review of the tactical use of Russian - with fall back positions - to help students acquire self-confidence in the use of the language.
Books and support material will be included in the price of the course. From the outset a high standard of pronunciation will be the goal - using CDs, tapes & films.
The course will take place at - YHA Cheddar - Barton -
