1. Group Classes for Native Children

If your child is already familiar with Russian (i.e. they have previously lived in Russia or they speak Russian at home), we recommend joining one of our Native Children's Classes.

These classes provide steady and structured progression for children aged 3 to 15. At the end of each academic year, students will be fully prepared to begin learning in the next group. Here are the Class Groups in order of Russian language proficiency:

1. Junior Group (Младшая группа)

2. Middle Group (Средняя группа)

3. Upper Group (Старшая группа)

4. Class Zero (Нулевой класс)​

​5. Class One (Первый класс)

6. Class Two (Второй класс)

7. Class Three (Третий класс)

8. Class Four (Четвертый класс)

Students finishing Class Four will be ready to progress onto our GCSE Class the next academic year.

2. Russian as a Foreign Language (RFL) Group Classes

For children aged 4-15 who have very limited knowledge of the Russian language (i.e. little to no experience in speaking, reading and writing in Russian), we recommend joining our Russian as a Foreign Language (RFL) Classes.

We currently have two RFL Classes – one for children aged 4-8 and one for children aged 9-15. These classes will provide students the best foundation to start learning Russian.

The end goal of RFL classes is to improve reading, writing and speaking skills to a significant level that will allow clear progression onto our GCSE Class.

3. Private One-to-One Classes

We offer private tuition for children of any age, where your child will learn on their own with one of our teachers. This option is best for children who are not available during the time of their Group Class, or children who only need to learn a single, specific aspect of the Russian language (i.e. only reading, writing or speaking practice).

We recommend that children in private classes follow our structured curriculum, however, if you have a specific goal in mind, our teachers will be happy to focus on that instead.
