A. General Courses in Russian

Kalinka General Russian classes provide comprehensive, well balanced lessons covering grammar, phonetics, listening and writing. However, the main focus in the General Russian course is on the speaking of Russian in a conversational context. Our teacher on the General course focuses also on all four major language areas: speaking, listening, reading and writing. The teaching is flexible enough to target one of these areas based on the specific needs and language level of each student. We do study grammar but without any over emphases. In the General classes the focus is on conversational Russian and we always discuss every day general topics.

For those who are studying Russian from scratch, classes at Kalinka will also help the student to make progress quickly with reading and writing. For those students who have already studied Russian we will focus on bringing their language skills to the next level, covering spoken, reading and writing Russian within a cultural context.
