RUSSIAN 201

Intermediate Russian 2


Description

RUSSIAN 201 follows on from RUSSIAN 200. Students with comparable knowledge may be admitted without the usual prerequisite. 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 of all types of verbs, verb government, aspect and morphology of verbal adjectives for vocabulary building and mastery of expository Russian. This essential grammar is consolidated through conversation practice, listening comprehension and the reading of a variety of authentic texts.  

 Objectives

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.
