This academic year of 2013/2014 saw MADEIRA Multilingual School become the first certifying test centre of the Russian Language Institute in Portugal.

Students who study Russian have the unique opportunity to take the examination in Madeira and receive an international certificate in the Russian language.

We organize and administer the certification exams at various skill levels in various areas: from elementary to native speaker level (A1 – C2). All exams are administered by a specialist from the Pushkin Russian Language Institute, which ensures an objective and impartial evaluation of each students’ level.

The Language Centre at MADEIRA Multilingual School offers courses at any level, either in a group or individually. Students may opt to take an exam preparation course or enroll for the exam without any previous study at our Language Centre.

The Russian exam is completed in one day and lasts between 2 and 5 hours, depending on level. In order to pass, a mark above 65% is required in each part of the test. Should a student not achieve this standard, the test may be taken again, either in its entirety or partially. The fee for repeating the exam is 50% of total cost.

Please note that alongside its Russian language tests for adults, the Pushkin Russian Language Institute has developed a unique test programme aimed at Junior and Senior school-aged children. Students who are successful in these tests receive the same certificate as adult candidates.

Further information about the programmes, timetables and fees can be found on the website.
