Look why it suits you
Russian as a foreign language is a comprehensive study program aimed to develop communicative proficiency and competency in Russian language and Russian culture. Methodological support for this program is drawn on the abundance of expertise and material, accumulated at Ural Federal University for over 20 years of working with foreign students.
Know what you’ll study
The curriculum is built on the level-based approach and offers training of the key language skills from introductory to advanced levels in: pronunciation, listening, reading, speaking, writing, and grammar. In addition, all our language courses have a built-in culture component designed to introduce students not only to the language, but also to the social culture as expressed in so-called unspoken rules for the social conduct (e.g. gift-giving, phone etiquette, being a guest in someone’s home, etc.).
See that you’re improving
Before the enrollment to the program, you should take the entry-test to determine your current level of Russian and place you in the relevant study-group. The classes are held in small groups of 8-12 people, so as to keep the balance between getting individual attention from the teacher and fully-participating in communication activities. With the aim to facilitate the learning process and immerse the students into the language environment, all classes are conducted entirely in Russian and emphasize the learning of contemporary Russian communicative norms.
In the course of the study year you take mid-testing, in order to check and prove your progress in Russian. At the end of the year, all students take final exam and receive certificate of completion, stating the level of language proficiency. Our certificate gives you the opportunity to pass the language test and study at Russian university!
Besides, if you want to confirm your language level and receive an internationally recognized certificate, you may take an international exam TORFL at UrFU.
