Entry into the winter and spring quarters requires proficiency in Russian language equivalent to the successful completion of Beginning Russian I (for winter) or Beginning Russian II (for spring).  Contact the instructor for an assessment of proficiency.
In this year-long sequence of courses you will learn how to decipher the mysterious-looking Cyrillic alphabet; read, write, and construct sentences; and eventually express yourself in Russian.  Constant exposure to the authentic Russian language, literature, history and culture will enable you to better understand Russian grammar, develop vocabulary, and improve your communication skills.  By spring quarter, you will have been exposed to advanced structures, grammar patterns, and vocabulary as well as various Russian idioms.  A variety of activities including staging skits, acting out true-to-life situations, viewing Russian films, and listening to a variety of Russian music will help you strengthen your comprehension skills and build the necessary confidence in using Russian.
