Increasing oral proficiency is a primary aim of this course as well as developing reading strategies appropriate to the widest variety of written texts. These texts will include artistic literature, poetry, and newspapers. We will proceed to expand vocabulary and study the syntax of the complex Russian sentence and grammatical nuances. Students will be asked to write short essays on a variety of topics. Audio-visual work in the language laboratory will be an important part of our work. The class will be conducted only in Russian.
