Stages of Russian language learning process
LinguaPlay is primarily targeted towards children whose parents/guardians are available to help with their weekly Russian language homework. Our goal is to develop the child’s ability to speak Russian in an English-speaking environment, to a bilingual level.
- From the age of 3-4 and a half, children attend the junior department, where we strive to develop their vocalisation and auditory attention as much as possible while introducing them to group study activities. To achieve this, we have developed the programs “My home and I“, “Let’s go for a ride” and “In the world of fairytales“.
- From ages 4 and a half onwards, children begin learning to read with our program “Sound culture of speech“, which is later replaced by the more advanced module “The world of words and images“. The main objective of the training module “The World of Words and Images” is to teach reading and the basics of literacy in Russian.
- By the age of 6, our students usually have proficient literacy skills and write in block letters, which allows them to begin writing and grammar lessons. At LinguaPlay, we are very familiar with the curriculum our students study in their primary English language schools. This allows us to engage in Russian language learning with greater effectiveness, as well as read and discuss stories that would be engaging for a British child.
- From the age of 12-13, we start to prepare for the GCSE and A-Level Russian examinations, which our students pass successfully and with the highest marks.
Every year we have more and more graduates who have been studying with us since the age of 3 and have successfully passed all the stages of learning the Russian language.
