    I am looking into studying Russian in the upcoming months and would rather follow GCSE and A level syllabus rather than CEFR. The problem is the GCSE syllabus is from 2006. Will there be much difference from now and then in terms of content?

    Assuming you're taking Edexcel, here's the 2009 spec which is correct if you're planning on taking GCSE Russian in Summer 2018 http://qualifications.pearson.com/en...sian-2009.html

    Here's the 2017 spec which is correct if you're planning on taking GCSE Russian in Summer 2019 http://qualifications.pearson.com/en...sian-2017.html

    I am retired and have some free time. The only O'level I failed (in 1964) was Russian, so I'm challenging myself to get Russian GCSE. But I don't understand today's education system, especially for retired people. Does anybody know how I can take a GCSE Russian course? I live in Winchester and would prefer to attend a class rather than just do it online, but will consider anything. Grateful for any advice.

    As far as the practicalities of taking the GCSE go, this is the specification you should be studying: https://qualifications.pearson.com/e...sian-2017.html The exams are available once a year in May/June and the entry deadline is in February. Unless you are taught on a face to face formal course you will probably have to find an exam centre willing to accept you as a private candidate -Winchester Coollege migth be worth a try.

    Your local university/college may offer Russian GCSE though it's unlikely but they might be able to offer some advice as where does.

    AS far as brushing up on Russian goes, memrise is a decent website for learning vocab https://www.memrise.com/courses/english/russian/ even if you don't use the paying version. YOu might be able to augment this with some one to one tuition. If you search online you will find Russian tutors, such as https://www.firsttutors.com/uk/tutor...sian.japanese/
