Slavic Languages and Literatures | Advanced Russian I
R401 | ALL | Chernishenko

The focus of Advanced Russian I is on the development of oral,
writing, reading, and listening skills, with written work used for
reinforcement.  Listening and reading are both addressed through
special materials, which will also serve as a basis for discussion and
oral practice.  Video materials and readings introduce aspects of
everyday Russian life, figures, events, and issues that are crucial to
an understanding of Russian culture.

Throughout the course, students will participate in class discussions,
debates, and presentations related to the topics covered in class.
Students will learn to develop an idea and support their point of view
in paragraph-length discourse, in addition to developing their own
style of self-expression.
