This course follows RUSS101, 102 and 201. Exercises in class and in the language lab develop fluency in speaking and understanding spoken Russian while teaching the rules of Russian grammar. Readings for the course (short works of Russian prose and poetry) will be listened to as well as read.
The study of Russian grammar includes learning distinctive Russian ways of conceptualizing action (verbal aspects and tense and verbs of motion) and learning how conceptions of space and time are imbedded in the Russian case system. The Russian language contains relatively few cognates with English, so students must learn an unfamiliar system of Slavic roots and etymologies that reflect Russian history. Texts for the course include literature and film that reflect Russian culture; discussions of the texts entail commentary on Russian culture.
