Russian Language

The main focus of the Russian language program at Rossinca Heritage School is the modern Russian language and its vast possibilities. The primary goal of this program is not only to teach and develop speaking proficiency, to learn the correct use of grammar rules, to improve reading skills, but to also teach each child to love Russian language, to desire to read in Russian, to speak with their peer group in Russian. An important component of the program is raising cultural awareness and understanding, which helps Russian language students to feel connected to Slavic culture and great literature. 
The program is designed for both native and non-native speakers (Russian as a foreign language) and as well as to the children of any age, (preschool to high school) and adults. Language proficiency and fluency is a multi-step process; thus, our program was developed to suit all levels and goals of the students.
During the week, classes are taught twice a week for two hours.  Each session consist of combination Russian Language / Literature blocks, with homework given once a week. For middle school children, Russian language class and Literature class are taught on different days.  Literature class includes not only reading and analyzing books, but history lessons, traditions and customs of Slavic people, important dates in modern cultural society and much more.
Saturday school is a great option for those kids, who cannot come to Rossinca Heritage School during the school week.  For more information about Saturday school please click here: (link to Saturday school)
We also offer individual private classes that can be attended as a stand alone program or in combination with group classes.
