This course designed for 8-9 years old children, who were exposed to the Russian Language in their families, but do not speak Russian fluently. It includes reviewing Russian pronunciation and intonation, a systematic review of grammar, increasing vocabulary, and developing fluency in different conversational situations, which will further improve the four skills: reading, writing, listening and speaking with an emphasis on communicative competence.

We will concentrate on developing cursory reading skills and building interest in reading.
