RUSS231-18S2 (C) Semester Two 2018

Intermediate Russian Language B

15 points
16 Jul 2018 - 18 Nov 2018

Description

This is the second of two intermediate Russian language courses. It extends the reading, writing and discussion skills acquired in RUSS230 and places greater emphasis on conversation skills.

EXPECTATIONS
Students in this language course are expected to attend all 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 improve 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, write and translate adopted texts. Students will practice writing intensively and should be able to compose short essays. The average student will be able to speak Russian.
