More about the course

It's not too late to enrol on our A-level Russian Preparation Courses in 2020/21. Alternatively, you can book one-to-one tuition or a teacher assessment for summer 2021. 

The course consists of Three Terms – Autumn, Winter and Spring and takes you right up to the assessment material submission date (roughly between 30 April & 15th May 2021. The course is suitable for young people and adults who are preparing to be graded for A level exam in Summer 2021. If you’re planning to take A level later than 2021, please, see other courses. Places are limited, please book today to avoid going on a waiting list.

See the course time-table and detailed course description below.

* Additional Free Workshops are NOT lessons. Although the teacher is present in the Zoom room, students are encouraged to work independently. They can complete their homework or do the tasks provided by the tutor. Such workshops are  a great opportunity to work in a relaxed, friendly environment, as well as adding up to 2 to 3 hours of additional practice. 

** One Block consists of five lessons, plus five workshop sessions totalling 5 hours guided hours and 10 hours independent learning.

If you’re over 18 and would like to sit your GCSE Russian as a private candidate, please, speak to us, we can help you.

Course Material

We use many resources in our lessons - our own course materials, past papers and, of course literary texts. We mix and match them to make sure you get the right amount and exactly right content each lesson. You won’t get any unnecessary materials – only what you need to pass the exam with flying colours.

If you’re not yet ready to take A level Russian in 2021, please consider doing our other courses, eg. “Russian for Beginners” or “General Russian”. For more information visit Russian Courses page.
