Description

Elective Course
This course is a continuation of RUSS3001. Russian III.1. The intention is to further expand students’ proficiency in Russian. Class lectures will make use of interactive approaches so as to elicit creativity, problem-solving skills, and to encourage participants to become independent users of the language. Various literary and non-literary texts from Russian and other Russian-speaking countries will be used, with the aim of stimulating critical reading and discussion. Learning activities will also be supported by audio-visual and web-based materials which will help students to better understand Russian and Slav socio-cultural environments. The selection of documents will serve as a basis for discussions pertaining Russian society as well as the students’ own experiences of Hong Kong society. Tutorial groups will be arranged separately to foster oral expression and debating skills.
