RUSS1002. Russian I.2
This course continues to build on work done in the First Year. The intention is to develop students’ understanding and use of Russian in the areas of speaking, listening, reading, and writing. Class lectures are based on interactive methods and approaches whereby participants are encouraged to be creative, problem-solving users of the language at pre-intermediate level. Literary and non-literary Russian texts selected from various sources will be used, with the aim of stimulating critical reading and discussion. Class activities will also be supported by audio-visual and web-based materials which will help students to familiarize themselves further with the actual usage of the language. Tutorial groups will be arranged separately to practice spoken Russian.
