for books -- poetry, translation, stories, childrens's stories




All intensive courses run from Monday to Saturday inclusive, leaving Sunday for arrival and departure. Each course consists of 24 hours tuition over six days. Written work is set to be completed outside of these hours and is then corrected. Cassettes and players are available also for practice, and there are Russian films [with subtitles!] for viewing on some evenings. These courses are individual one-to-one tuition unless 2 people arrange to come together. Such couples should be at the same level. Otherwise neither will benefit fully from the tuition.

Individual courses can be arranged at any time [subject to other bookings] and at any level. Participants may request a particular line of study to suit their own interests and purpose. It would help if students who have done some Russian would let me know at time of booking approximately what they have done and where they feel they most need help. It would also be useful to know which books they have studied, in order to avoid duplicating material. I am happy to discuss details over the phone beforehand.

Courses of shorter duration can be arranged at dates not crossing a booked full week.

The house is situated in the midst of fields [with sheep] and near a delightful river. I recommend that students take some time off to walk there and let their brains unwind. Bodyfuddau has a resident flock of ducks which are very useful for this.
