Cambridge IGCSE First Language Russian is designed for learners whose first language is Russian. This First Language syllabus develops learners' ability to communicate clearly, accurately and effectively. They learn how to employ a wide-ranging vocabulary, use correct grammar, spelling and punctuation, and develop a personal style and an awareness of the audience being addressed.
Learners are also encouraged to read widely, both for their own enjoyment and in order to develop an appreciation of how writers achieve their effects. The syllabus also complements other areas of study by encouraging skills of more general application.
From 2020 this syllabus will only be available in administratives zones 3 and 4. Check the administrative zones for your school.
