The group will be learning the language but due to the differing levels within the group they have decided, for the moment, not to define themselves as beginners or improvers etc.
This may change in time.
This is a group recently set up, with currently 8 members. Their Russian knowledge is mixed, ranging from complete beginners to those who have spent time learning the language in the past, but have not studied it for several years. We meet on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday mornings in the month.
