This course will help students become conversational in the most common topics—expressing opinions, going places, transportation, discussing sports, and describing location. In this course, students will be introduced to the dative case, which can be used to ask permission. Students will also begin using the instrumental case; this will enable them to talk about doing activities with others or going places with people. Other topics include telling time, using the word “whose,” and a review of the nominative, accusative, and genitive cases. There are also cultural highlights through which students will learn more about Russia and the Russian people. This is the third course in a four-part Russian series (RUSS 041, 043, 051, and 053).

Course Details

All speaking appointments require high-speed internet access (hardwired if possible) and a computer with a webcam, a microphone, and speakers or headphones. Computers must be able to read/type in Russian characters. Students will need a way to record audio.
