This year-long sequence of courses in second-year Russian will help students move forward in their mastery of Russian pronunciation, grammar, and vocabulary. Class is conducted largely in Russian. Students will continue strengthening their language skills through intensive work on grammar, reading short stories and newspaper articles, and engaging in conversation and comprehension exercises. They will also memorize Russian poetry, learn songs, act out true-to-life situations, and participate in thematic discussions to strengthen their comprehension and speaking skills and build the necessary confidence in using Russian. Students will deepen their knowledge of Russian culture by watching the best of Russian films, reading authentic Russian stories, and listening to a variety of Russian music critical for understanding the mystery of the Russian soul.
