|Subject Overview:|| |
This subject involves advanced grammar, translation in both directions, composition, and close study of literary texts. By the end of the subject, students should demonstrate a very solid control of the grammatical system; demonstrate a fairly large active and passive vocabulary, sufficient for translating medium-difficulty texts (Russian to English) without a dictionary and difficult ones with a dictionary; be able to write and converse in Russian on relatively serious topics (eg. social or political issues); understand normal spoken Russian (eg. lectures, broadcast talks) on any general topic; and understand the content and literary structure of selected literary texts (by commenting and translating). Students should also develop a deeper knowledge of Russian society and culture.
|Assessment:||Regular written assignments 50% (throughout the semester) and a written exam 50% (at the end of semester).|
|Prescribed Texts:||Prescribed Texts:Russian As We Speak it (S Khavronina) Making Progress in Russian (P Davis & D Oprendek), (2nd ed) 1997|
