  • Kingston Language Scheme

Russian

Generally, Russian modules are year-long and run over 2 teaching blocks. However, additionally, a new beginners course starts in January. Higher level students can enrol on the second part of the more advanced year-long modules.

Our Russian courses follow the blended learning approach; which consists of a combination of face-to-face classes and online/virtual classes. During the first half of each teaching block, students will attend traditional classes at Kingston University and the second half will be online real time interactive (virtual) classes with the language tutor.

At the end of the teaching block (semester) there will be two assessments: Reading and Writing and an Oral Assessment.

Please note: A minimum of 10 students are required in order for a course to run. Should any course not recruit enough students, it will be cancelled.
