Baikal educational center "Esperanto"
Educational center "Esperanto" was founded to teach Russian citizens, foreign nationals and citizens of CIS the Russian language.
We offer Russian language courses for all foreign nationals who want to combine intensive language training with a rich cultural and sport program in Russia. This is an opportunity to expand the ambit of acquaintances from different countries, to see the unique Lake Baikal, and to learn about the history and traditions of Siberia.
Highly qualified specialists: doctors and candidates of philological sciences, professors and associate professors have been teaching nationals of China, Korea, Mongolia, Japan, USA, England, South Africa, India, Syria, Cambodia, Afghanistan, Canada, Poland and other countries for more than thirty years.
Course participants attend classes not only as students but they themselves conduct actively lessons, discussions, and lessons-conferences. Jointly with the teachers, they discuss current world issues as well as environmental problems in Siberia and Lake Baikal, issues of culture, art, and politics. They act as journalists, researchers, tourists and even ministers and presidents of various countries, take interesting and informative tours. In this way international students improve their conversational Russian and put into practice their acquired knowledge.
Classes are held in the classrooms (in Irkutsk) and on the tourist base
“Krugbaikalskaya” which is located on the shore of Lake Baikal, sixty kilometers away from Irkutsk-city ( www.lakebaikal.com ). In their spare time, students will undertake hiking and boat tours in the tourist center, accompanied by a teacher and a tour guide.
Teaching Russian as a foreign language is conducted in groups (no more than 8 students in a group) and individually. Course duration depends on the students, from 2 weeks to 9 months.
We offer the following programs:
- Russian for CIS nationals (practice in speaking and writing);
- Russian for foreign nationals (beginner, intermediate, and advanced stages);
- Preparation for international language tests (TRFL-1, TRFL-2, TRFL-3) [TRFL - Test of
Russian as a Foreign Language];
- Preparation for international Russian language tests for migrant workers;
- Preparation for international Russian language tests for applying for RF citizenship.
The most important point is that after the international students pass a test of Russian grammar, vocabulary, writing, listening, reading, and speaking they may evaluate their level of the Russian language and get a state-recognized certificate of international level with the corresponding objective scores.
