  • Advanced Russian Training (ART)

    Do you speak Russian at a high professional level (B2 or higher), with a wide vocabulary and strong knowledge of grammar - high enough that native speakers have stopped correcting you? Do you feel that because of this your learning of Russian has stalled? This is the course for you! An instructor will engage you in topical conversations, identify your weak points, provide detailed feedback and exercises, and work with you to bring your Russian to the next level. 

    Heritage speakers - this is the course for you as well, with an individualized approach to correcting grammar, breaking habits of applying English structure to Russian, and filling in the gaps in your knowledge of Russian.

    Four 60-minute sessions, scheduled individually
