Sheila O'Donohoe Easter Intensive Course, 2019

I feel I know the language a lot better and easier to learn and understand. It is a lot easier for me to listen and understand Russian. The small class sizes and constant engagement from the teachers made me speak a lot more Russian and as a result I feel a lot more confident in it. There was a lot reading, writing and speaking /listening with the teacher however I would have enjoyed the use of video or audio in comprehension tasks too. The constant engagement and Russian speech with the teachers was immensely useful in making me think faster about my use of the language and really helped my confidence in speaking in Russian. I feel it would have been helpful to receive recommendations for other media forms in Russian such as films,shows,podcasts,songs etc. to encourage futher exposure to the language and improvement to listening skills,according to our level of Russian.
