Russian as a foreign language 

 

We offer Russian as a foreign language classes for students who have had a little exposure to the language previously. In these lessons children learn the grammar of the Russian language. Grammatical material is often presented in the form of models, through which students build their ideas and conceptual understanding, as well as in tables, from which they choose the end of words. Students work through exercises in their notebooks. Spelling words and penmanship are also key components of this course.
