Russian, Beginning II
Winter 2017 quarter
In winter quarter, students will continue to learn the mechanics of Russian grammar and new vocabulary to enable them to develop thematic presentations prompted by the topics covered in class. The class setting will provide students with ample opportunities for dialog and productive interaction in the target language. We will also start exploring selected works by such literary masters as A. Pushkin, L. Tolstoy, and A. Chekhov, to name a few, in order to understand not only the specifics of Russian grammar and vocabulary but also the complexities of Russian character and the Russian way of thinking as documented and preserved by outstanding Russian authors.
Location and Schedule
Tue/Thu, 6-8 pm. First meeting is Tuesday, January 10, 6p, Seminar 2 C3109.
