Some really exciting news for you!
The RTG is going to run a series of FREE webinars to discuss and share best practice in the new learning environment.

We really hope that getting together on-line to explore new teaching techniques dictated by the recent changes in how we teach will help us inspire and learn from each other even more than ever before.
  • The webinars will be held via ZOOM (link will be sent out just before the start of each session)
  • The sessions are FREE (we would be grateful if you could confirm your participation asap)
  • Each session will consist of a presentation and a group discussion and will be led by an active classroom practitioner
Session 4 

Monday 29th March at 10am 

dedicated to pedagogy of Russian.
We can't wait to see you there. The link will be sent out in due course.
From the presenter Natalia V. Parker (University of Leeds):
  • we will first have a look at what research has to say about the causes for these difficulties in learning Russian, analysing how Russian grammar is presented by teachers and processed by learners
  • we will explore possible ways of how these research findings could help us address these difficulties in the teaching of Russian grammar.
  • We will discuss how we can make grammar instruction more “processable”, why integrating it with communicative language practice could be helpful,
  • and finally we will look at how that could be possible within the time restrictions of a school syllabus and whether it is applicable to different levels.
The webinar will consist of a few short presentations, with discussions, there will be group-work and you will all leave with a lesson plan ready to teach!
There will be plenty of opportunities to discuss and comment on various issues, ask questions, as well as making suggestions.
