What you need to know before you enrol
Regular work is given to be done at home to support and consolidate your learning. You should therefore dedicate about 2 hours for this on a weekly basis. It is important that you have access to the Internet and a computer for the duration of the course and that you consult your emails at least once a week.
What you need
Please bring a notebook and file to each lesson.
Class format and activities
Practise speaking Russian in pairs and in a group, playing language-based games, using online resources such as apps and quizzes, listening, reading and writing. The written activities will be mostly set a homework. We will use Google Meet for lessons and Google Classroom for posting course materials, completing homework and communicating with the teacher. Excellent attendance and punctuality (over 90%) is required from all students. You will gain most from your course if you attend every session. Missing a class or lateness can make it hard to take part fully. Course outlines tell you what you can expect to achieve – this assumes that you are present throughout. However, we appreciate that absence is sometimes unavoidable. Please contact the College if you will be absent. Some courses may have a minimum attendance requirement – please check your course documentation
