Intermediate Russian Language A

15 points, 0.1250 EFTS
22 Feb 2016 - 26 Jun 2016

Description

This is the first of two intermediate Russian language courses. It aims at extending vocabularly and grammatical structures to discuss and write about simple topics in Russian culture.

EXPECTATIONS
Students in this language course are expected to attend all tutorial-type sessions.

Note on attendance:  Languages are learned by doing, and the tutorial-style sessions in this course are designed to create an atmosphere in which students can try out their language skills on each other. If you do not attend regularly and do not keep up with the work, you will therefore not only be hindering your own progress, but you will also be holding back the other students with whom you are working.

Learning Outcomes

As a student in this course you will acquire skills in all four areas of the language (reading, writing, speaking and listening).  By the end of the course you should be able to read and translate adopted texts. Students will be able to compose short essays on the topics covered within the course. Students’ listening comprehension should reach a level where you will understand the slow speech of a native speaker and you will be able to speak on a variety of topics covered within the course.

By learning a foreign language students will develop more understanding of global conditions and will become competent in engaging with global and multi-cultural contexts. This will help the language students to develop knowledge and attributes sought by employers that can be used in a range of applications.
