Our department would like to invite your students to have a fantastic time in our Russian summer school in Omsk, learning Russian, improving your Russian skills, and discovering everything that the city has to offer.

We are located in the heart of Siberia, so the climate here is warm during the summer. The OmSU offers a 2-week program both for those who would like to start learning Russian and for those who wish to improve their skills. Classes are held in international small groups based on the Russian language competences. Upon successful completion of the program you will get the Russian Language School Certificate (3 ETCS).

Russian Language and Culture Training: 
You will have 3 lessons a day. The morning is divided into two lessons. The first one focuses on reading, writing skills and key grammar. After the short break you will focus on improving your oral skills using role-play, debate and project work. During the afternoon lesson you will learn about Russian culture, history and your surroundings in Omsk and the cultural places you will visit during your stay.

Social and Cultural Program:
During this Summer School in our city there will be the celebration of Omsk 300 years anniversary! It will be on the weekend 5-7.08.16. We want you to enjoy your stay with us so we have organised an action-packed program at our school. You will visit historical places, take part in a lot of activities, dance and sports, make lots of new friends and take part in meetings or other evening activities. There are also full day Saturday tours to places of historical interest or to towns and villages with cultural background.

Friendly and Supporting Staff:
The staff is available throughout the full day as we realize how important it is to have careful people and their help in a foreign city. All our activities and excursions are accompanied by OmSU leaders and these are OmSU students who are selected for their warm manner and sense of responsibility and have been carefully trained.
