From that modest beginning, Serendipity's language school has developed into a highly respected program that emphasizes effective communication through the "international language" of English. The combination of formal classes and informal interaction between the students and the combined American and Russian staff benefits everyone directly involved -- as well as the community at large. We now employ nine full-time American teachers, two experienced Russian Teacher Supervisors, both of whom also teach the first semester of the lowest level course, an experienced Russian teacher who is responsible for our new program for 8 to 11 year old children see below and two Russian language tutors.
They also teach individual students and small groups studying Russian with us full time or as a part of a short term program. See the separate information on our Intensive Russian program and our Alternative Spring Break program and educational tours. For those 12 and older we offer eleven semesters of regular classes from beginning to advanced.
During the fall and spring terms these classes meet twice a week for an hour and a half each meeting. Conversation classes are also offered which meet once a week. During the intensive summer session classes meet three times a week for two hours and fifteen minutes each class period. Supplementing the formal classes, the American teachers present a series of lectures on various aspects of American history and culture during the course of the fall and spring terms.
All of these lectures are then offered to the general public over two Saturdays in April. These lectures are very well received. Additional special Saturday activities include the showing of American movies, and activities such as spelling bees and "Brain Fest" competitions with "trivial pursuit" types of questions , and, depending on the interests of the teachers and students, the playing of games e. When there has been sufficient interest, the School has sponsored a Music Club and has informally staged several plays.
Some students have completed the entire program. In January we moved all of our offices and classrooms to leased space in a new building.
Everything is now under one roof. Our new address is 5 Fedoseeva St.
The Vladimir City Administration now has full responsibility for the maintenance and operation of the original American Home. Fortuitously, their takeover of the AH freed up the resources we needed in order to be able to make the move to the new facility. Additionally, click here to download a PowerPoint tour of our new facility. Demand for English lessons from native speakers remains very strong. In addition to classes, as noted above, our teachers offer lectures on topics of special interest to Russians.
This is an exceptional opportunity to experience Russia in a uniquely supportive atmosphere and to accomplish something worthwhile in the process. Previous teachers have commented very favorably on the quality of our facilities and teaching materials; the tremendous support provided by their colleagues, including our dedicated Russian staff; and how much they have enjoyed their Russian students.
A significant number of our teachers have parlayed their experience in Vladimir into employment in Moscow or stateside—or into admission to major graduate programs, including top ranked law schools. See the comments below.4840.ru/components/wie/powyh-software-handyortung.php
