As a foreign language, courses of Russian will improve your knowledge of Russian grammar and familiarize you with Russian and Belarusian literature, culture, traditions, and national features of Belarusians. Highly skilled teachers teach the courses with many years of experience working with international students in Belarusian universities and abroad. Many of them are the authors of course books, tutorial guides, and original methodologies for teaching Russian as a foreign language.
During the past years, the Pre-university department has accumulated a wealth of experience in teaching the Russian language to foreigners. This experience is reflected in the textbooks and course materials utilized in the classroom. Russian teachers prepared most of these materials for foreigners. All our teachers are fully qualified and experienced in teaching Russian as a foreign language to allow international students to meet the University's entry requirements.
In-class teaching methods are augmented by various audio-visual aids available to students of the Pre-university department – these include several language labs with an extensive collection of audiotapes and classrooms equipped with video systems for viewing educational and feature films. Individual study rooms are equipped with computers and Russian training and controlling programs.
