Want to learn Russian but not sure where to go? Ecologia has you covered!
After months of discussions and ironing out the kinks, we are pleased to announce that our Russian Language Course is back!
Between 27 th June – 22 nd July 2020, you can take part in our Beginner or Intermediate Intensive Russian Language Courses. They will be held at Orion Children’s Community, Russia, so you can immerse yourself in Russian culture and practise conversation.
Your teacher, Yulya Lyubimtseva, is a philologist specialised in Russian Language and Literature, and dedicated to working with the children at Orion. You can expect to receive expert tuition and 1:1 time to help you learn the Russian language.
The course was really good! I learnt an incredible amount of things with a good book of exercises, and of course, the most wonderful teacher ever! Yulya is really kind, intelligent, and extremely knowledgeable – she can explain more or less everything concerning Russian language. And the fact that the groups are really small is very good for fast learning since it allows us to speak a lot and to get a lot of attention from the teacher.” – Sofia, 2011 Student
Yulya was an exceptional teacher who taught me and the whole a great deal during our stay in
Orion. The classes were very well structured, including all the relevant grammar tuition which we needed but also many exercises which expanded our vocabulary, practiced our speaking and also enhancing our translation skills It was a highly rewarding experience which taught me a lot both culturally and socially. I would recommend Orion to anybody who would be interested in spending time with an interesting, lively and friendly community in Russia.”
So, if you fancied visiting Orion as a volunteer, but held yourself back because of language barriers – worry no more! Join our Beginner course to learn the basics. Or, if you can already speak some Russian but want to develop it further, the intermediate course will be perfect for you!
Once you have completed the Beginner or Intermediate course, you are welcome to stay at Orion or Kitezh for up to two months as a volunteer! We are open for applications – but you better hurry as space on the courses are limited to five per group! To get the most out of lessons, each course is limited to five people.
