2021 - 2022 Academic Year 2021 - 2022 Academic Year

The annual courses in virtual mode, but with direct teaching by videoconference, allow participants to learn and certify a level of Russian in June, with a teacher and a specific schedule, but with enormous flexibility, thanks to which all students of UPF will be able to combine this training with the schedules of their classes; Likewise, people who work or have other obligations will be able to be trained in Russian with a very close follow-up of the teacher. The planning of the classes, the materials and the videos with explanations of the teacher are published punctually in the Global Classroom of the course to allow the optimal follow-up of all the participants.

The orientation of the annual courses is communicative, both in the objectives and in the methodology used. This means that in addition to rigorous grammar training, these courses provide students with the resources they need to communicate properly and appropriately in Russian in different areas. Thanks to the formation of small virtual classrooms, participants will intensively practice oral expression as well as written expression and calligraphy.

Take advantage of this year to train in Russian with native teachers, quality and university accreditation, and maximum flexibility!

Our courses are open to everyone. We look forward to seeing you!
