Dear friends!

We wish success to all of the participants.   Here is the Format of the tests in the Olympiad. The Olympiad includes two rounds that you must complete.

The qualifying round of the Olympiad consists of three parts: a grammar test, a vocabulary test, and a reading test. At this stage, all tasks are performed in the “multiple choice" format, and you do not need to use the Cyrillic keyboard layout. A regular browser (e.g. Google Chrome or Safari) is enough to take the tests.

10-15 minutes*

Tasks samples

The time for completing tasks is limited. After you click the "Start" button, the timer will start. It is impossible to stop this timer. If you accidentally close the browser window during the test, the timer will continue to count down the time. You can return to the site and continue to complete tasks until your time is up.

You cannot use a dictionary (or any other reference books) in the process of completing tasks.

We have prepared four variants of tasks corresponding to different levels of Russian language proficiency:

  • A1
  • A2
  • B1
  • B2

The participants who perform best in the qualifying round will be invited to participate in the final round. Try to score maximum points in grammar, vocabulary, and reading in order to continue participating.

In the final round, our instructors will personally talk to each of the participants. We believe  that the main goal of learning a new language is communication, and we’ll be glad to talk to you.

We look forward to meeting you soon!
