At the same time, you'll also be able to learn a new language, Russian. This language can only be taken at beginner level or post-GCSE level maximum. You will develop your linguistic skills by taking a language module in your first, second and final year. By the end of the course you will be expected to reach B2 standard (CEFR) in Russian (this approximates to A Level). You can spend your year abroad either in a French-speaking country for the whole year, or you can split your time between a French-speaking country and a Russian-speaking country.
