Russian Grammar Challenge

Short Course

Are there aspects of Russian grammar that trip you up again and again? Areas that you really want to drill until they come naturally? Or, maybe you simply want to join a group of like-minded Russian learners and realize that most of us, even native Russian speakers studying grammar in grade school, face the same challenges.

Our Russian Grammar Challenge courses are an opportunity for you to focus on some of the more challenging aspects of the Russian language. Sometimes simply hearing another explanation or taking another approach can make all the difference. Or you may need more focused practice time in a small group setting.

4 Grammar Challenge Levels are offered:

  • A1. Elementary (approximately 2 semesters of formal Russian language study)
  • A2. Pre-intermediate (approximately 3-4 semesters of formal Russian language study)
  • B1. Intermediate (approximately 4+ semesters of formal Russian language study)
  • B2. Upper-intermediate (approximately 5+ semesters of formal Russian language study)

When you enroll in the course, we will direct you to a placement test in order to determine which Challenge we recommend. If you have a strong preference for a particular Challenge, let us know in your application - as long as your language level roughly lines up with the Challenge we should be able to accommodate you. You are welcome to enroll in more than one Challenge - we try to schedule them so they do not overlap.

Each level covers 5 challenges (see each level below for more detail), plus you receive one bonus session at the end for overall review and to ask your instructor any final questions about the material. The 6 synchronous lessons of 60 minutes each take place on weekdays (more details in the Technology and Scheduling section below).
