SibFU Free Online Russian Course for Foreign Nationals
Beginner level learners from Spanish-speaking countries are the target audience.
If you plan to enter a Russian university or take interest in the Russian language and culture, enrol in an online course designed by Siberian Federal University teachers. It comprises nine lessons; each is focused on a certain topic such as family, food, life in a Russian city, hobby etc. Grammar is explained in Spanish; video clips in Russian with Russian subtitles are available. Though the course is customised for Spanish speakers, game videos would be interesting to all foreigners. Vocabulary, grammar and listening comprehension practice tests, review tests and reference materials are available as well. The final test is taken at the end of the course and the student gets a certificate showing the points earned. Successful students will know the Russian alphabet, pronunciation rules, parts of speech, basic syntax and vocabulary and maintain small talk and socio-cultural conversations. Register at the SibFU online learning platform to receive the link to the materials.
An online course is an excellent opportunity to get the basic knowledge of Russian. It is particularly useful to foreigners who plan to enrol in Russian-taught programmes. Foreign nationals have other Russian language learning opportunities. For example, they can come for a summer/winter language school or enter the Preparatory Department.
