Slavic Languages and Literatures | Advanced Intermediate Russian II
R302 | ALL | Richter


Third-year Russian is intended to be an in-depth review of
grammar, the
first semester (R301) concentrating on the nominal system, and the second
semester (R302) on the verbal system.

The following grammatical topics are covered in R302 as it is
currently
taught.
1. The conjugational system, being a review of the various verb
classes
2. Position verbs (sit, stand, lie)
3. Hang/weigh verbs
4. Teach/learn verbs (if necessary)
5. Negation as a semantic and structural system
6. Time-expression and numeric system
7. Verbs of motion

Time expressions are not part of the verbal system, of course; but
students at this level consistently demonstrate the time expressions
are still
a big problem. So we take them on.

More course time is devoted to verbs of motion than to any
other topic.
