Russian 303. Third-Year Intensive Russian.

Section 201.

Instructor(s):

Prerequisites & Distribution: Russian 203. No credit granted to those who have completed or are enrolled in 301 or 302. (8). (Excl).

Credits: (8).

Course Homepage: No Homepage Submitted.

This proficiency-oriented course reviews and deepens knowledge of Russian grammar and syntax, introduces word-building and idioms, and substantially expands vocabulary through the use of original twentieth-century prose readings, contemporary films, electronic and print media, rock music, and other authentic popular and everyday materials. Great emphasis is placed upon active student participation in class and on the even development of all four language skills: reading, writing, speaking, and listening. Many class activities and homework assignments are modeled on the linguistic requirements and real-life situations of the New Russia. Russian is the only language used in class. Commitment to participation inside the classroom and to hard work on assignments at home and in the language laboratory is essential. Students are evaluated on the basis of in-class performance, written assignments, tests and examinations, and an oral proficiency interview conducted at the end of the course. Students who complete Russian 303 should be able to participate readily in conversations with native speakers of Russian, to write relatively complex Russian, and to read most kinds of Russian texts quite fluently with the aid of a dictionary.
