The English Language Course starts at the IKBFU within the framework of the "Silver Age" project

On 5 October, the first cohort of Russian senior learners starts the English Language Course within the framework of the international project "Silver Age"*. Five groups will learn English for five months according to a unique method developed specially for elderly people. For those who want to learn English, various formats of training sessions were offered: distant, face-to-face, and hybrid. The timetable of the classes suits the learners’ preferences in terms of time, place, and format. The geography of the Course participants is not limited only to the city of Kaliningrad and the Kaliningrad Region, but also goes beyond their boundaries: learners from Moscow, St. Petersburg, and Perm will attend the Course. The age of senior learners varies from 50 to 73 years.
The classes will be delivered by the teachers of the IKBFU’s Resource Centre of Foreign Languages who are proficient in teaching a foreign language to adults: Associate Professors Tatiana Verbitskaya, Svetlana Mazanova, Elena Mondraeva, Marina Panyushkina, and Senior Teacher Elena Zeidmanis.
* The full name of the project: "Silver Age: Cross-Border Social Integration through Education".
