Russian Conference

On the 28th of November, Russian A-level students attended a conference, held at Oxford High School. The day consisted of multiple lectures from a variety of speakers including an official from the Russian embassy and two professors from the University of Oxford. We were particularly excited by the translation workshop and the short introduction to Czech which thoroughly tested our general language skills and not only our Russian! The conference was truly a rare experience and a chance to meet others our age who also study such an uncommon subject. We would therefore like to thank Mrs Norman and Mrs Kenton greatly for taking us on the trip. Sasha Nixon To learn more, read Kirsten Rachman’s account of the day on the Russian Department blog.
