You will be expected to do homework in order to progress quickly. We recommend 2 to 3 hours a week on top of the lessons. You can also attend our other courses or book one-to-one lessons. All depends on your initial readiness and language aptitude. The program we use in our centre is usually covered in 2 years at schools with 3 to 4 hours/week.

We also offer teacher-examiner services in our Centre. The teacher-examiner can travel to your school for the Oral part of the exam during the exam window. This will be free to you. Please, speak to us about it by emailing or calling us.

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.
