The next meeting of the Russian kruzhok is in July, please see below.
The London Russian Kruzhok is part of the Association for Language
Learning (A.L.L.), a body which promotes both the teaching and the
learning of languages. Local branches operate throughout the country. The
London branch, of which the Russian section is called a “kruzhok”, i.e. “a
little circle”, caters for teachers and students, and for anyone
interested in Russian, by providing meetings and talks. When the former
GB-USSR Association closed down, then was re-born as the Great Britain
Russia Society, the initiation of their own programme of meetings and
talks meant that the kruzhok should pursue a different line and make its
meetings more informal. It now meets 3-4 times a year on a Saturday
morning, usually in South Kensington, and we have c. 40 members. It is not
exclusively for teachers or students of Russian, but for anyone interested
in Russia or Russian. Meetings are conducted in English or Russian, and
members are encouraged to use either language, and to take an active part
by offering brief 10-15 minute talks.
The next meeting will take place on 8th July 2006.
