What caused such a deep interest of compatriots to the English education? What are its merits and features? First we need to streamline our system in the Russian educational system. Begins training in Russia seven years. Finish high school students of 16-17 years. Learning occurs in classrooms with sufficient fullness (23-28 people). In elementary school, learning is the initial skills: reading writing and arithmetic. Here, almost No differences with English education.
The only thing: training in England begins with the five years. Further training in secondary school in England and Russia are very similar. A distinctive feature of the English system Education is the presence of a specific list of compulsory subjects and optional subjects – at the student's choice. After graduating from Grade 9 to choose from Russian schoolchildren provided two alternatives: admission in post-secondary institution (colleges and vocational technical schools, etc.) and continued in school. At this final stage of their schooling and clearly visible differences in Russian and English education.
In Russia in the last two years of school are studying a number of compulsory subjects, which later may not be useful to the student. In the system of English education for pupils created more comfortable conditions. For students who choose to further studies at universities, technical institutes and university colleges at the end of compulsory secondary school, comes the most crucial stage in their training – preparation for university. Within two years a pupil thoroughly studied those disciplines are necessary for admission. Ends with a training exam for a certificate A-level. Here you can draw an analogy with the Russian unified state examination, introduced in recent years in Russia. If the Russian universities for admission enough certificates use in the necessary disciplines, for English Education is compulsory interviews. So what's so attractive in the English education? This individual approach, the possibility of in-depth study of subjects, focus on result.
