In the fall quarter, students will explore the roots of Russian language, learn to read the mysterious looking Cyrillic script, write the unique Russian cursive, construct sentences and begin to express themselves in Russian. Students will be introduced to basic grammatical structures and vocabulary to enable them to successfully develop thematic reports in the target language. From the very start, students will be immersed in the colorful cultural and historical context provided by authentic text, film, music, and visual arts. Also,  an essential component of students' learning experience will be discussion of or attendance of culturally significant events.
