Online Summer Course

We firstly would like to thank all of our brilliant students and parents for continuing to study with us!

As our academic year finishes on 5th July, we are introducing an Online Summer Course for students that wish to continue learning over the summer holidays. We welcome every student from our five Russian schools to join us!

The main focus of this course is to go over all topics covered in this academic year. Repetition of the topics will provide our students with additional practice to ensure that the previously studied content is fully understood and improved upon.

For students in Class Two and Class Three, the Online Summer Course will be an introduction to the Russian GCSE qualification. Here we will discuss each of the five exam topics and the format of each exam (reading, writing, speaking and listening). It will be a great starting point for future learning and revision, and it will give our students an idea of what to expect in their Russian GCSE exams.
