Russian Language Tuition in Mountain Ash - South Wales
CF453NT - Could be useful for university entrance - perhaps improve your prospects. (Ad updated - 17.12.2016)
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.
Are you aware of the connection between Russia, The Ukraine and Wales? Donetsk, for example, was founded by a Welshman from Merthyr Tydfil - John Hughes. Originally the town was called after him - Hughes-ofka - or in Russian letters - Yuzovka. After about sixty years the name was changed to Stalino and then finally to its present name - Donetsk - nearly 100 years after the town was founded. Nikita Krushchev's father went to Yuzovka as a seasonal worker - before moving the whole family there. Nikita studied in the town - joined a trade union and entered politics - all when the town was still called after John Hughes. He then continued in a political career that was eventually to take him take him to the number one position in the old Soviet Union. Start with......googling Hughes-ovka.......And the Ukraine won the Eurovision song contest!
The tuition will take place in the centre of Mountain Ash - in an office near the bridge - on the corner near the traffic lights).
It is intended for beginners -
I specialize in one-to-one tuition and small groups.
This could be of value to students preparing for exams in 2017.
One-off sessions available. Difficulties that students are experiencing can be discussed and ways to resolve problems suggested. There will be an introduction to tactical Russian - students will be introduced to ways of 'cutting corners' and saving their study time.
Business Russian - if you are visiting Russia on business
in the near future I can introduce you to basic Russian.
Tuition could also be very useful to someone proposing
to travel to Russia in the near future - for a holiday perhaps.
A modern language teacher seeking to start a new language
might find a lot to interest them.
Tuition can be arranged specifically to suit the needs of participants – eg couples/families/groups.
Use will be made of a lot of study aids - which can be loaned out - CDs/DVDs/audio tapes etc. Email support can also be arranged.
