Platform Overview Video


Each self-study course contains a text on a contemporary and topical subject and vocabulary of new words and expressions used in the text, with translations and explanations..
Comprehension tasks help to check your understanding of the text and grammar exercises for you to practise using new grammatical forms and constructions.
In addition, we provide an audio recording of each text so that you can also listen to it, replaying as necessary, until you understand it fully.
Where we have used excerpts from literary works or poems, we provide embedded links to give you more background on the context of the text and its author. Other texts use film clips or extracts from plays.
You can access your study set any time, through password access to your own area of our website. This means that you can work on your Russian whenever it is convenient for you.
Independent study sets with NovaMova give you the best of both worlds and are the ideal way to learn Russian flexibly.
