More Information

Russian native speakers will be required to demonstrate theoretical command and a general knowledge of Russian language history and of its present day stylistic and sociological situation (special texts could be provided, if necessary).

Regular attendance of classes is highly recommended. The autonomous acquisition of Russian grammar at the level required to pass the examination is hardly possible.
