We have written more than once that learning Russian is a great challenge for foreigners. And it is not only about the fact that the Russian language is “great and mighty”* and difficult in itself, but also about the fact that learners can experience difficulties depending on what their native language is. You can study Russian, like any other language, independently, individually, in groups, at schools, or at preparatory faculties. Moreover, the preparatory faculty course fundamentally differs from other courses, primarily due to intensive immersion in the language environment. Besides, the foundation program is comprehensive because students not only take the Russian language course, from elementary to advanced level, but also prepare for university admission. Read more in the article “Preparatory Faculty. Russian Language with Immersion”.
