Learn Russian to work in Russia like Michael Bryant!
It’s amazing how lucky our school is when it comes to talented creative teachers! Though Petrozavodsk is not a big city, there are many foreigners who want to come to work here. One of them, Michael Bryant, came to Petrozavodsk “Enjoy Russian” language school from the USA. To work here as a teacher he needs to pass a Russian language exam and get a working permit.
The exam is not that difficult, and you need just 50% of correct answers. But your level of Russian should be somewhere around A2 (Базовый уровень). Some knowledge of Russian law and history is also necessary.
Here are some sample test questions. First of all, you need to show how well you know Russian grammar and vocabulary:
As you see, the sentences are not very difficult. There are also written and oral parts of the exam. In speaking part you need to describe a picture, talk freely, using simple vocabulary, and just 5 sentences is enough:
Describing this picture you could say something like “Я вижу остановку автобуса. На остановке люди. Они ждут автобус. Едет автобус номер 121. Кажется, что сейчас осень”.
Next part of the exam has some questions about Russian legal system:
Michael is going to take part in the exam on October 2nd. Let’s wish him good luck! Hope he can easily pass it and join our team as a teacher of English.
