This class will not be offered in the Fall 2020.

Russian Language and Culture

This program will be dedicated to the study of many different elements of Russian culture – history, geography, music, art, etc, with discussion of historical context and major personalities.  The year will be broken up into units dedicated to each of these topics.


To participate in this program, students must be in grade 5-7 and must understand and speak Russian comfortably to express their thoughts and participate in class discussions on the many subjects that we will cover.  They must also be able to read and understand a variety of texts, from classic and modern short stories to children’s magazine articles to encyclopedia entries.  Group placement is contingent on GKRS staff language assessment.
