Intermediate Russian 1

Please note: this is archived course information from 2020 for RUSSIAN 200.


RUSSIAN 200 is designed for students who have completed RUSSIAN 101 or who have a comparable knowledge of Russian. The course revises the essential grammar of Russian covered in the first-year course: declension – the forms and meanings of the grammatical cases; conjugation – formation and government of verbs; verbal aspect; morphology for vocabulary building. This essential grammar is consolidated in context - through conversation practice, listening comprehension and the reading of a variety of authentic texts. 


Russian at Stage II aims to equip students with a foundation sufficient to develop further proficiency in the language through subsequent independent use of Russian language sources – print and electronic media, general and specialised literature.

Important information

Students who study Russian for the first time at the University of Auckland must complete a Language Ability Declaration and will be selected on a first in first enrolled basis.
