Academic Prog.: Russian Language Winter School (Dostoevsky Omsk State University)

Deadline for Applications:  November 1, 2016

Dostoevsky Omsk State University invites you to the Russian Language Winter School! We are located in the heart of Siberia, so in winter there is a lot of snow, though the climate is rather mild. The OmSU offers a 2-week programme 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 programme you will get the Russian Language School Certificate (3 ETCS).

Language & 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 & Cultural Programme:

We want you to enjoy your stay with us so we have organised an action-packed programme 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 & 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.
