The two-day seminar offers an intensive lecture programme in
Russian, aimed at teachers of Russian, translators and interpreters,
final-year undergraduates and graduates of Russian, and all those

interest in contemporary Russia.
The lecture programme, led by two senior university lecturers

- Russian language and linguistics
- Contemporary Russian culture
There are four lectures per day: choose from one of two options
per session. You can move from one stream to another throughout
the day. Each lecture session lasts 70 minutes, including time

with handouts. We also encourage conversation in Russian during
