Dear colleagues! ITMO University invites all students to participate in the Winter School of the Russian Language. Inspired by the success of our first online school of the Russian language this summer, we offer students to also continue immersing themselves in the world of Russian culture this winter.
The Winter School will last for 4 weeks: January 11 – February 5, 2021. Students can choose up to 4 weeks of education on offer.
How will the lessons be held?
Online studies are conducted in Zoom. Studies are held on business days and take 4 academic hours daily (1 academic hour is equal to 45 minutes). Each module lasts for one week (20 academic hours). The studies include practical lessons and entertaining extracurricular activities.
What courses are offered?
Independent modules are aimed at students with any level of Russian language proficiency and who pursue various goals in their education. For students interested in Russian culture, ITMO offers intensive and interactive modules in Russian Literature, History and Cinema. Intensive lessons include vocabulary, grammar, spoken Russian, as well as the main course in the Russian language modules. For those willing to learn Russian for specific purposes, the following courses are available: Russian in Media, Russian Politics and Diplomacy. You can find a description of the courses on our site.
What about the cultural program?
Furthermore, we offer students the possibility to not only learn the Russian language but to immerse themselves in Russian culture. ITMO University cooperates with the best theatres and museums in St. Petersburg, which offer unique virtual tours to our online students: excursions, spectacles, ballets, and other interesting virtual events.

You can learn how to cook classic Russian dishes right from your own kitchen, and you will also find out what Russians eat during self-quarantine because of Coronavirus.
