Russian language school in Moscow: Levels.

In our group courses, we teach six levels of Russian year-round (beginner to intermediate) and eight levels during busy summer period (adding upper-intermediate and advanced classes). For reasons of compatibility, we have adapted the framework of the European Language Portfolio. Lesson numbers required to complete each level are averaged, based on our experience with students passing through our school. Students enrolling for a one-to-one course will need less time to pass from one level to the next.
