The GCSE in Russian course aims at helping students to achieve a decent level of speaking, writing and reading Russian in order to be able to pass the exam (dependent on individual progress).
The Russian GCSE course covers various topics, including History and Modern Society, Media and Culture, Sport and Leisure, Travel and Tourism, Business, Work and Employment, Customer services and Transactions, Personal information, Future plans, Education and Work and more. Some of these topics may be familiar to some of the students from previous studies, but they will learn to deal with more advanced vocabulary and linguistic structures when speaking, writing, reading or listening.
During the studies, the students are encouraged to make practical use of their newly acquired language skills and make proper use of the grammar needed to express themselves clearly and accurately, which also helps them achieve the highest scores on Russian GCSE exams.
The exam is taken externally and is constructed into four major parts, including Reading and listening when the candidates will require to answer a number of questions following their reading or listening; Writing, when the students will be asked to compose several paragraphs in response to the questions they get on their choice of topics; and Speaking when the students will have to speak for up to 10 min as well as describe certain things and answer questions.
