The Higher Intermediate course is for those who have completed the Intermediate course with the college or for those who consider themselves competent at this level. You will already be able to cope in a range of situations using the present, past and future tenses and cases of nouns, adjectives and pronouns although you may require further practice with this.

You will gain further understanding of Russian grammar and a broader vocabulary, develop your listening and speaking skills and gain an insight into aspects of Russian culture. You will also revise and consolidate essential everyday vocabulary and the following grammar points: verb aspects, verbs of motion, subjunctive mood, comparative and superlative adjectives.

Please note there will be no sessions on 25/10/2021, 20/12/2021, 27/12/2021, 03/01/2021, 21/02/2022, 11/04/2022, 18/04/2022, 02/05/2022, 30/05/2022.

Abingdon and Witney College is subject to Ofsted regulation and is required to work with all its students to make sure they understand Government initiatives around Safeguarding, Prevent and Fundamental British Values. Information on these matters will be shared with you during your course.

You will also be asked to complete monitoring paperwork, which helps us to deliver course content to the highest quality.

This course leads to a Working Toward Fluency course.
There are no formal entry requirements, however, this is a course for those who have already studied the language for 150 - 200 hours and know some basic grammar (cases of nouns, adjectives and pronouns; past, present and future tenses).

Please note - you should be 19 years old or over at 31st August 2021.

Courses can fill fast, so please enrol early to avoid disappointment. Decisions on whether a course is to run are made two weeks prior to the start date - an email will be sent to you should there be changes to your course or if it is cancelled. Please check your inbox leading up to your course, including the junk folders. For anyone without an email account, our Admissions team will phone you instead.

For the first week of the course you will need to bring a valid form of identification; this includes passport, driving licence, debit/credit card, Birth Certificate or National Insurance card.

Please note - you should be 19 years old or over at 31st August 2021 prior to starting the course.
A textbook will be needed at the cost of approximately £20.

Courses offered by the college are fully or partly funded by the Government and the published fee takes account of this funding.

Before starting a course, the College is required to check you meet conditions relating to that funding, e.g. age, residency status within the UK/EEA, prior qualification level and employment status. In some circumstances (such as with online enrolments), these checks can only be completed after you have enrolled and paid.

If you are unable to pay in full for this course at the time of enrolment, and the course tuition fee is £300 or more, an instalment plan is available. If this is your preference, please do not enrol online but rather call the Admissions Team on 01235 216400 to enrol.

Once enrolled, Admissions will take the first instalment payment from you and pass on your details to the Finance team who will email you to set-up your payment plan. Please return a fully completed instalment plan to Finance as failure to do so could result in being withdrawn from your course.

The rules on fee reduction are complicated, we would encourage you to talk to our Admissions Team on 01235 216400 to discuss these options. You can find more information on our Fees and Bursaries page - search "Fees and Bursaries" at the top of the page.

As this is a non-accredited course, there is no formal qualification. However, you will be asked to complete activities that demonstrate how you are progressing on your course.
You will continue to practise all four skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing) with the emphasis on the spoken language. Learning activities will include individual, pair, small group and whole class work. You will listen to the spoken word, practise speaking, play games, do grammar exercises, read texts and write short essays. This is not an accredited course, so there will be no formal examination. However, your tutor will ask you to complete informal assessment exercises and will give you feedback.

If you are to gain maximum benefit and enjoyment from your language class, it will be useful to spend some time working between sessions. There will usually be a small amount of homework set each week (up to an hour’s work). When homework is not set, it is still a good idea to spend about that amount of time going over what has been done in class.
