Russian and Linguistics

Studying modern languages is about more than vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation: you will also immerse yourself in culture, spend time working or studying abroad and learn to understand the subtleties of communication. Linguistics looks at the structure and sound systems of language, how grammar and meaning relate, how dialects work. You’ll develop systematic ways of understanding how the modern English language works, how it’s used and how it changes, looking at situations as diverse as youth language in our multicultural and multilingual cities, or the English used in the media and politics. You’ll consider how new technologies shape the form of English and whether the spread of English in the world is changing or even killing other languages. Students with little or no knowledge of Russian follow a special 2 year ab initio track taking them beyond A-level standard. You then progress to the year abroad in Year 3, returning for a final year and finishing in four years. Students who already have an A-level in Russian or an equivalent qualification, go straight into Russian I. Each year you receive a large amount of language tuition designed to bring your competence in understanding and expressing yourself to as high a level as possible. Students take modules in Russian literature, thought and film to enrich their feel for the language. We also encourage you to take modules in History and other disciplines where there is a strong interest in Russia. Students are encouraged to participate in the annual play, performed in Russian.
