The very essenses of Russian language

This immersive programme was worked out at ISS as a full-time intensive language course designed to help non-native Russian speakers achieve the proficiency required to study in Russian-taught academic programmes, use Russian professionally at the workplace, and to take Russian language exams (A1, A2, B1). And you will get the non-typically good vocabulary besides – due to advanced communicative techniques and huge intelligence of our faculty involving students into learning the Russian cultural codes and background. The process includes taking part in communicative games and debates, working out and delivering presentations on various topics.
We designed 2-modules course covering all steps of language learning — starting from the "blank page" to discussing great Chekhov with native speakers.
You can either take the whole course or join a definite module to continue your education process.
We have English and Chinese speaking professors, who possess stunning experience in working with students from all over the world.
